With everyone still talking about her new look and her MTV Video Music Awards win last night, Rihanna has announced her “Rihanna Diamonds World Tour” for next year.

Yes, to see RiRi, you're going to have to plan ahead. Way ahead. Her tour is set for Barclays Center in Brooklyn on May 4, 2013, but tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 21 through Live Nation. The pre-sale for the tour starts at 10 a.m. Monday through Citi's Private Pass Program.

She'll be touring to support last year's “Talk That Talk” album – which has already spawned six singles, including the new “Cockiness” that she did last night on the VMAs. However, the ever-working Rihanna has confirmed that she's at work on her seventh album, so could she already have a new album out by the time the tour starts in March? Guess we'll find out.
