Rihanna has discovered a worthy cause for £100,000 of her finest sterling - after she bought a portrait of Marilyn Monroe made out of 65,000 crystals.
The Umbrella singer reportedly purchased the five sq ft picture of the all time classic blonde bombshell from a bespoke artwork company called "Gemstone Creative".
The eccentric star is believed to 'identify' with Marilyn Monroe because she feels the same pressures of fame.
The portrait, which constantly changes colour and 'sends rainbows of light round the room', took four months to complete at Claire's Yorkshire studio.
Claire, who was commissioned to produce the piece by "Gemstone Creative", made the 13 stone piece with 100 per cent Swarovski crystals and told The Sun: 'I tried to show the glitter of the public life and then the sadness in Marilyn's eyes.
The ironic thing is that Rihanna made a "Thug Life" tatoo last week & she strongly beleives that she is living the "thug life"...
Come on! She is far from being a thug, judging by the Beverly Hills Mansion she lives in! Actually she lives the high life with all the glamour she is surrounded with & the lavish way she spends her money!
It has to be marked that the artist who made the Marilyn Monroe portrait, Claire Milner, stated "Because of who Rihanna is, everything had to be done through her interior decorators, but they told me afterwards she loved it."
Thug life eh?
With a team of interrior decorators?
Give it a second thought my dear Rihanna...
