Rihanna sat down with Diane Sawyer during her ABC interview to discuss the abuse she suffered from Chris Brown. A lot of people think that the night before the Grammys was the first time, that it was an isolated incident. Well, it wasn’t. It was just the worst.
Rihanna always went back to Chris Brown because of her love for him. She knows now that wasn’t the right choice,
“Don’t react off of love. F love.”
Well said, RiRi.
“I stayed. I even went back after he beat me, which was wrong … I’m a human being and people put me on a very unrealistic pedestal,” Rihanna tells Sawyer. “I’m not perfect. It’s pretty natural for that to be the first reaction. It’s completely normal to go back and start lying to yourself. The minute the physical wounds go away, you want this thing to go away. This is a memory you don’t want to have again.”
Once Rihanna realized how much bigger this whole situation was, that went beyond just her and Chris, she made the choice to walk away.
“When I realized that my selfish decision for love could result into some young girl getting killed, I could not be easy with that part. I couldn’t be responsible … If Chris never hit me again, who’s to say that their boyfriend won’t … kill these girls? These are young girls. I just didn’t realize how much of an impact I had on these girls until that happened. It was a wake-up call for me, big time, especially when I took myself out of the situation,” Rihanna says emotionally.
The interview is so emotional and it’s hard to flashback and remember just how bad Chris Brown beat Rihanna. It’s awful. But I believe that Rihanna has come out so much stronger and that she is going to be an inspiration to young women to get out, now.
