Rihanna Spent $160K . . . On A Piece Of ARTWORK . . . Is It WORTH IT . . . Or Did She Get ROBBED!!!

: MediaTakeOut.com got its hands on a pic of the stunning crystal encrusted Marilyn Monroe portrait that Rihanna forked out $160,000 for.

The 5x5 foot picture is made with 65,000 Swarovski crystals and weighs a whopping 182 pounds.
Rihanna is thought to have commissioned the piece from British artist Claire Milner and it took four months to complete.

The 23-year-old pop star "loves it" according to Ms Milner, who also said she "tried to show the glitter of the public life and then the sadness in Marilyn's eyes" in the portrait.

Rihanna has reportedly spent a fortune doing up her LA pad, which features a gun-shaped chandelier and a 'reggae' room

Hey . . it's better than buying a $160K car, right!!!

Shit, I don't know nothing about art. If she's an art lover, then I guess I can respect her reason for doing that. I would've invested that money into something else.

It's very worth it... Art is definitely a valuable asset. Learn something MTO.. And Swarovski crystals are very valuable... **Please visit my natural hair blog (STOP CRYING OVER SPILLED PERM): www. facebook.com/its.only.perm **

Well sense we all know that Art appreciates with value over time then we know it's an investment. Plus if you can understand the time and painstaking detail that went into the Marilyn Monroe crystal portrait by the Artist then, Hell yeah it's worth it! And not to mention even though Rhianna is crazy as F@#! her own celebrity gives the picture even MORE value because she is the owner of it...

Actually artwork gains value over time. So that was actually a good investment. Thats what the wealthy do to evade taxes and hide their net worth. Some idiots rather spend that on a car and clothes instead. @ImProudOfDAT....Swarovski crystals aint cheap especially if you have 65000 of them. I bet your broke ass can't even afford one crystal.

I honestly think this is the wisest thing I've ever seen/heard from Rihanna. It's like in Baby Boy, "Guns and butter..." Unlike cars and shoes that depreciate in value, art appreciates. I just gained a new found respect for her.

When you're wealthy, good art from a respected artist is always a good investment. It sounds like she bought it just because she loved it though. And that's OK too when you've got money to burn. Not my taste though

I wouldn't want the energy of Marilyn Monroe in my home, it's destructive. The actress Megan Fox wanted the tattoo removed from her arm for the same reason, it brings chaotic energy into the persons life. I feel for Rihanna, I really feel like Satan will push her to the extreme where Rihanna will take excessive drink & drugs. This feels like the beginning of her decline, which I don't think I want to witness. Sad!!

Crystals are expensive, shyt just getting a iphone case with crystals is pricey. So no I don't think she got robbed. Most don't know how much work goes into creating anything with crystals. And trust if diamonds were used as some foolish people suggested, the price would be in the millions. And I agree, don't know why she would want a pic of Monroe, Eartha Kitt was from that era and just as sexy.

P.S. those fake shyts you see at the mall, are just that fake. They are rhinestones and Swarovski Crystals
