Rihanna Hits Wonderland, Talks Assault

Rihanna Hits Wonderland, Talks Assault

Rihanna sneaks out the backdoor of Wonderland nightclub in Los Angeles on Wednesday (November 4).

Earlier this morning, the 21-year-old pop sensation spoke to Good Morning America‘s Diane Sawyer about the February assault.

On being attached by Chris Brown: “That’s embarrassing that that’s the type of person that I fell in love with. So far in love. So unconditional that I went back. It’s humiliating to say this happened. To accept that? It’s a traumatizing experience.”

On admitting her she made a mistake by going back to Chris: “I stayed. I even went back after he beat me, which was wrong. But again … I’m a human being and people put me on a very unrealistic pedestal. And all these expectations, I’m not perfect… It’s completely normal to go back. It’s not right. I learned the hard way, but again, this is what I want people to know. When I realized that my selfish decision for love could result in some young girl getting killed, I could not be easy with that part. I couldn’t be held responsible for going back… Even if Chris never hit me again, who is to say that their boyfriend won’t? Who’s to say that they won’t kill these girls? These are young girls and I just didn’t realize how much of an impact I had on these girls’ lives until that happened.”

During the interview, Rihanna acknowledges that Chris held her in a headlock twice that night and bit her on the ear and fingers. In August, he was sentenced to five years of probation, six months of community service and one year of domestic violence counseling.

Rihanna‘s new album Rated R will be available in stores on Nov. 23.

    For once I agree with her but I suspect her answers have been carefully scripted by her pr team.

    This is better than her usual shtick but I still can’t justify giving her the Glamour Woman of the Year Award. She hasn’t spoken about until now.

    Forget Cover Girl, she could have a long career doing Rogaine commercials.

    this interview will change at least one life (if not more.) woman (and men) stay or go back to abusive relationships because of “love”…She is being honest, and anyone who’s been in an abusive situation will say the exact same thing. Once you decompress years later, it is embarrassing that you stayed for one minute.

    I’m glad she admitted she was wrong for staying — that’s a step in the right direction…

    W Says:

    …but what else is she going to do for this issue? They are giving her awards and she’s do no activism so far.

    It took this chick 9 months to practice all them lies? WoW! This here is the new voice of women being in domestic situations, yeah right! She dont care for no one but her self. I could see maybe after a month or so she would have come out on behalf of actual girls and boys being in that same so called situation as her, but 9 months after the fact and with your CD popping in two weeks? No! And she has yet to visit actual shelters with people that have been in a real domestic violence situation, come on Rihanna, Stevis Wonder can see this is a free shot at publicity. Help us all, and especially those that really fall for this one here… Not a good choice or time to spread lies and she actually said F**K Love! You go girl! she will do anything to stay on top instead of having down to earth talent.. My respect level for this liar just dropped another notch and I for one thought it could go no lower but she just made it possible..

    go on perez if you’d actually like to hear it from her own mouth. this cotton candy sit doesn’t deal with the real.

    She needs to lose the Alien vs. Predator ‘do.

    koa Says:

    omg, why didn’t she talk about WHO started the whole thing first?

    Villa Says:

    Agree, Rihanna sounds smarter in this interview, but also agree, she was probably coached by her p.r. team. They know if she’s linked to Brown again, her career will go down the drain.

    I wish she’s spoken out this before instead of waiting until she had a CD to promote.

    @pr person:

    No it wasnt, if you look at the video you can tell it came from her heart. she wasnt rading off no cue cards like Chris

    guest Says:

    She is right. Young girls DO look up to her.
    I’m glad she did not cop to that “I’m not a role model” line many of her fans used.

    koa Says:

    don’t hit people and expect they don’t hit back…….lady ri.

    Wings Says:

    It does sound scripted. It’s like her label took a press poll and addressed all the issues that would alienate her fan base. Just in time for her new album to drop.
