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?

I support them BOTH and wish them BOTH success in the future

Maybe RiRi did need time to get her footing again before helping anybody else. Time will tell how she uses her voice. I pray she has learned and healed from this. I pray CBreezy has learned his lesson as well. I always felt this was a “fight” that went WAY to FAR and was a one time incident (yes he was still wrong not saying he wasnt)

loveeeeee her!
i will buy her album so go away haters!!

Shut the hell up already. I am over her. Waiting months to open her damn mouth. Get over yourself and stop trying to promote that weak album.

isn’t she banging timberlake?

wtf is this ***** talking about? she hasn’t voiced **** and at this point no one needs to hear her ****… game over *****.

Why is she being honored? I like Rihanna but she hasn’t done anything but change her hairstyle a dozen times and dress like a ****.

at least Britney Spears can come out with a great #1 album and all her singles were hits!!! Rihanna your two latest singles suck! they’re horrible. magic doesn’t strike for you. you now fall to the ranks of Ashanti, Ciara, Brandy etc at girls who were at the top but no longer matter. Beyonce and Britney are queens

i love rihanna but i wish she didnt due this interview. It is far too late. She is bringing up the past all over again when it is conveinent for her.

rihanna is amazing. domestic violence is such a shameful and private thing to go through. she has an album coming out and has to promote it and of course all the interviewers are gonna ask her about the incident. she has to talk when she is ready not when you are ready.

People grow up and change and that’s cool but she seems to be the type of person who forgot where she came from. She used to be the barbados girl talking about the “sun” and having a good time and now when you see her out, she’s always trying to make a “fashion statement” (that looks ugly most of the time). I commend her for leaving chris brown but it’s so obvious her and her record label are completely capitalizing on the fact she was a victim of abuse; now they’re using that as her new “image”. “Rihanna – so dark edgy and dangerous…”if i had a gun i would so shoot it” kinda lyrics. Very weird.

why her lyrics are always about violence ,guns ,etc? like Unfaithful ,the song of a guy killing him self and Russian Roulette about a gun and being her terrified ,the song ends with a gun shot.
She loves violecence i guess ,a cheap way to sell records.

The whole ‘fight’ was a stunt to stop her becoming like Ashanti, Ciara, Brandy, etc. She reveled in the fame she got from it too much. She’s a rich popstar there’s no reason she couldn’t have condemned that boy. BUT SHE DIDN’T!

How convenient that her new album is about to drop just when she finally decided to open up……..lalalalalalalalalala……….

oh my god she is so full of crap
her publicist wrote that line for her – it tookk her 10 days to memorize

what a lost loooooooser

Go f.uck yourself Rihanna ! I least Britney is adorable. You are a disgusting person forehead

@linx: What is she going to do stay inside and not live her life? It’s not her fault that she got beat up and it’s not her fault that people like us make this site go strong by coming on here posting comments about something that is completely irrelevant such as celebrity. We get on here and keep the machine running and that’s why there’s paps following behind these people..

agree with # 14, they need to tell young women not to hit anyone if you do not want to get hit back. i think she needs some counseling herself. the way she has been acting lately.

She went to sleep as herself and woke up as herself! Leave Britney out of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chris was wrong and now paying the price however Rihanna has never answered for her abusive behavior and why not??????????????????

She is so fake! Britney ought to sue her for coming with this one here, all this bull just to sale a CD. The puppet reins agian.. They paid for this honor, no one is feeling Rihanna anymore all this publicity stunting is crazy. So her walking the streets of New York was what? This fake **** needs to go somewher and sit down and dont try that one. She was one of the ones that sit front row at the award show and laughed at Britney now she wants to use her.. Bad choice..

enoughalready @ 11/03/2009 at 7:57 am

Gettin into one altercation dont make you an abused anything especially when you started it! Stop using that she is pushing it to far now!
