Rihanna Is Selling a $230 T-shirt Specifically to Troll Fans
Let’s be honest, is there anything Rihanna can’t do? Over the years, the superstar has had a number of roles: singer, actress, owner of a cosmetics company (Fenty Beauty) and, now, owner of a fashion brand, too. Those other interests have maybe put her recording career on the back burner, and fans have been asking her nonstop to release new music. RiRi, apparently, is getting tired of the questions, and has now taken to trolling her fans through social media with a $230 “No More Music" T-shirt. Now that is one way to grab fans’ attention.
According to Bustle and Fader, the shirt appeared at Rihanna’s pop-up shop for her Fenty line at The Webster in New York City. The shirt was obviously a joke, since Rihanna has been open about how long it's taking to make her reggae-inspired ninth album. And there’s a great reason for it: She wants it to be perfect.
The Twitter account, Rihanna News (@TeamOfRihanna) tweeted, “Rihanna about the ‘No More Music’ T-shirt: ‘Please let my fans know that I’m trolling them. You have to get it because it’s a souvenir. That’s the closest you’ll get to music before the album.’ #FENTY”

Fans, as usual, had some interesting comments. We checked out Twitter to see what they’re saying, and, for the most part, they’re wondering when and where they can find the Rihanna tee.
One user commented, “Does anyone know the price tho? Cus if she said get it, I will get it!”

This is a fair question. Could this be Rihanna’s next album name?
The “No More Music” shirt will be available online starting July 10 on her official website. Until then, there are other luxury items like jewelry, dresses, skirts, sunglasses and an “Oversized Printed T-shirt ‘Barbados,'” which is where Rihanna was born.
