With all the yipping Chris Brown does about the night he beat Rihanna to a pulp, Rihanna herself has kept pretty quiet on the subject. At first it seemed like it might be because there were so many rumors floating around about whether or not they were getting back together, and so much media surrounding the whole thing and it seems that was part of it. But now that Rihanna’s starting to talk out about it a little more, it seems like a bunch of very obvious crap mixed in with stuff that her PR rep told her to say.
First Rihanna talks about how the relationship between her and Chris became ‘self destructive.’ While this seems so blatantly obvious to me, it also has me questioning what on her part was self destructive? Except that maybe she stayed in it? But the fact that it turned to be self destructive on his part, well yeah, I think we all realized that. Then all of this is mixed in with some stuff about how it can happen to anyone and other ramblings that come straight from a PSA advertisement. From US,
“In her upcoming ABC News interview, Rihanna says Chris Brown was “definitely my first big love” but their relationship slowly became self-destructive.
“The more in love we became, the more dangerous we became for each other,” the singer, 21, tells ABC News’ Diane Sawyer in the sit-down airing Thursday on ABC’s Good Morning America and Friday on 20/20.
In August, Brown, 20, was sentenced to five years of probation, six months of community service and one year of domestic violence counseling for leaving her bruised and bloody the night before the Grammy Awards.
This happened to me … it can happen to anyone,” Rihanna tells Sawyer.
The singer also reflects on her difficult year in December’s Glamour.
“I felt like I went to sleep as Rihanna and woke up as Britney Spears. That was the level of media chaos that happened the next day,” Rihanna says. “It was like, What, there are helicopters circling my house? There are 100 people in my cul-de-sac? What do you mean, I can’t go back home?”
She says that having a photo of her surface on the Internet after Brown’s attack was “humiliating.”
“That is not a photo you would show to anybody,” she says. “I felt completely taken advantage of. I felt like people were making it into a fun topic on the Internet, and it’s my life.”
Since the incident, she says she has relied on her family and on God.
“My friends and family have been extremely supportive, and everyone has been there for me. But at some point you are there alone. It’s a lonely place to be — no one can understand,” she says. “That’s when you get close to God.”
Even though much of this is pretty predictable, I guess Rihanna feels as though it’s time she says something and if that’s all she’s got, then it’s not a horrible way to go. But I was hoping that when she did come out and speak about it that we would see something different. A fresh face and a new perspective, maybe. I’m not really sure but I was hoping that she would talk about more than just not being able to go home and taking that time to find God. Maybe she’ll bring that when we see the entire interview. Or maybe I’m asking too much.
