Rihanna Breaks Her Silence

Posted on: November 9, 2009

Rihanna broke her silence on an interview on Good Morning America last Thursday and talked about the Chris Brown incident that occurred on the day of the Grammies. Chris Brown physically abused Rihanna, who was his girlfriend at the time and left her badly bruised and swollen on the face. He was then arrested and both of them missed their Grammy performance. Ever since then, Chris Brown’s popularity went down to zero which of course ended his career. This was the first time Rihanna sat down and spoke up and told the world what really happened.

Rihanna’s recount of the events of that evening was shocking because she confirmed all of the worst details.

” I really just wanted it to stop…I was bleeding. I was swollen in my face. So there was no way of me getting home, except for, my next option was to get out of the car and walk. Start walking in a gown, in a bloody face. So i really don’t know what my plan was. I didn’t have a plan. That whole night was not part of my plan”

She said that by the time the police reached the scene, she was already brutally battered. She said that the fight started over a text message from his ex-girlfriend and she insisted to see what it was about, Brown then chose violence to stop the annoyance. 

I caught him in a lie. And he wouldn’t tell the truth. I was being more annoyed at that point in our relationship he had to lie about something so stupid, I couldn’t take that he kept lying to me. And he couldn’t take it that I wouldn’t drop it. And… it was ugly

As well as telling the details of the awful incident, she also went on and told us why, after all the physical and mental pain he caused her, she returned to him for a period of time. She said that she did not know what she really felt but was concerned about Chris’ feelings. She explained that her love for him “blinded” her from seeing the reality of the situation and at the time, she felt that she had to protect Chris from all the hate that the world was giving him. However, she could no longer stand Chris and everything he did annoyed her and in the end of course, she dumped him. Finally, she said that this was something that would always be in her memory, even though she would rather get rid of it, it would be there. This was a piece of her that can never be healed. As for now though, she is moving on and finding a way to live on. 

It is nice to see such a powerful voice coming from Rihanna. Hopefully she will find the right man but again, women nowadays do not need a man to be able to survive. We are so much better off without them.
