Rihanna‘s much anticipated sit down with Oprah aired Sunday night on OWN. In case you missed here are some highlights.
Rihanna had Oprah chillin’ on her home island of Barbados. The twosome talked about everything from career, to what growing up in Barbados was like, to that fateful night in 2009.
Talking about Chris Brown Rihanna called that period in her life “embarrassing” and humiliating.” She also said she is constantly reminded of him and during that time period she was concerned with protecting him because he needed help and no one cared about helping him.
“I am reminded by a lot of things. A lot of good memories we had. By the slightest things: hotel rooms, tour venues. Any little thing: music, songs. And I do miss him at times.”
About forgiving the love of her life:
“I have forgiven him. I was angry for a long time.”
“I think he was the love of my life. He was my first love.”
“I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched … switched in a night and I couldn’t control that. So I had to deal with that, and that’s not easy for me to understand or interpret. It’s not easy to interpret on camera. Not with the world watching.”
Next up for Rih is the MTV VMA’s airing live September 6th. And Rihanna just wrapped a few huge performances in Tokyo and Osaka for this weekend’s Summer Sonic festival
I feel like this was Rihanna’s most honest interview she has ever done! I understand every point Rihanna was trying to make in this interview all I can do is wish her well and hope that she gets some much needed counseling!
