Rihanna Went To Sleep As Rihanna, Woke Up As Britney Spears

Rihanna is finally opening up about the aftermath of being assaulted by Chris Brown in February.

“I went to sleep as Rihanna and woke up as Britney Spears,” the 21-year-old songstress tells Glamour. “That was the level of media chaos that happened the next day… The positive thing that has come out of my situation is that people can learn from that. I want to give as much insight as I can to young women, because I feel like I represent a voice that really isn’t heard.”

Rihanna will be honored at Glamour‘s annual Women of the Year event Monday at New York’s Carnegie Hall. There will be a “special musical performance” that night. Any guesses?

    Rihanna you are not Britney! Don’t think you have a mental disorder! Starting wondering about you when you got that gun tatoo. Not a tat that a normal female would want! You have hit Chris many times over and over FIRST and yet have never been held accountable. Glad Chris is paying his dues and hope he gets help. However, you need just as much help as Chris does and need to own your part in the relationship.

    @Khristi: How many celebrities do you see almost daily photos of? There’s no reason for this girl to be out every night. She is seeking the paparazzi attention. Something is wrong there. She doesn’t appear to be a draw to the magazines so her people must be arranging these photo sessions. What a shame.

    “because I feel like I represent a voice that really isn’t heard.” yeah right. she had to do something to be honored for something, what has she done? NOTHING.

    I know that’s right. He should have never been with her to start with. I knew it was a bad look!!! But live and learn Chris, you will be bigger and better because of it!!!! Love you Chris.
    Rihanna, put some clothes on and quit looking like a typical island ho’!!!!

  • shay

    I agree leave Britney the hell out of this. You are one to talk, she knows what happened that night!!! She and Chris, don’t hit unless you want to be hit!!!!!!!! Didn’t yo mama teach you that!!!!!

    The same old people who know nothing about Rihanna, don’t care about her and claim they don’t like her, but spend a lot of time and energy commenting on her threads.

    Keep your heard up, Rihanna. Half the people here are struggling actors/singers who after 10 yrs of trying in LA still can’t catch a break.

  • pink sugar

    Can’t you people read and comprehend. She experienced the same level of media chaos as Britney did when Britney had her meltdown. It called comparison.

    Iam glad she said something about Domestic Violence. I saw the spread and it’s acutally cute, except for her hair

    We as consumers need to boycott Glamour for making this sorry chick “WOMAN OF THE YEAR” for what? Walking the streets of New York? showing her nasty tale? She could not have been a role model cause she did nothing! She was not an abused woman cause she did it, people like Rihanna need to go crawl back under a rock! Now she is playing the victim role? After not wanting a restraining order, for sleeping with him days after if it was not for Def Jams image being tarnished she would’ve still been seeing Chris, but now she is using the situation for her good and her good only! Please Glamour sit this chick down…

    @pink sugar: Comparison – still didn’t need to bring Britney into it! Britney has moved on. Rihanna’s actions have hurt her, after the incident getting a gun tattoo, that promotes violence! Going out every night partying and now you have waited for your album to come out to do your FIRST interview – promoting self – not domestic violence. These were Rihanna’s decisions. Rihanna needs to leave Britney out even by comparison you don’t keep bringing up a person’s past especially if it wasn’t pleasant. (the media came with all the insane stuff that was in Britney’s life at the time,) WRONG of Rhihanna!

  • Snow White

    @pink sugar: Yes, we all can read and have reading comprehension. However, Rihanna was one that made fun of Britney so for her use Britney has a comparison is a NO! Rihanna likes the thug life with her gun tattoo……………..

  • poppasd

    I find it ironic that the very people who are on sites like this, reading about every detail of the “stars”, are the same people that label their “alter heroes” as being fake…. as far as the article…. wow! what an amazing article! I’ve learned so much about nothing really.

  • Katie.

    She can’t be Britney in neither sense cause Britney is more famous, more cool, more popular, more beautiful and more pop princes.. So,Rihanna, stop compare u and Brit, u can’t be her even in bad sense.

  • Ashlee Glam

    Well, at least she doesn’t have 2 kids or k-fed

  • Chef de Vestes de Cuisine
