Rihanna Speaks About Domestically Violent Relationship, Chris Brown & Eminem


Rihanna got gorgeous for the cover of Marie Claire’s December 2010 issue. In the issue Rihanna opens up about this past year, and how her life has changed so much. RiRi at times got emotional during the interview questions Marie Claire ask, but was willing to answer any question they asked head on. She talked about her career, Eminem, and surviving the attack/beating(their words) from Chris Brown, only to become a stronger person. Here’s part of what she said:

RiRi On The Healing Process: ‘Eventually, I remember waking up one day and I knew I was over it. One day. I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it.’

RiRi On the content of Love The Way You Lie: [‘Eminem] basically gives insight into what goes on in the mind of a couple in a domestically violent relationship. I love that in every verse it just gets to that point where she wants to leave, she wants to leave, she leaves, she leaves, she leaves… but then the hook always comes back and it’s like, ‘I love it. I love it”. She continues, ‘It’s almost like you must love it because you’re not leaving.’

RiRi On how she felt after the assault incident: God has a crazy way of working, and sometimes when stuff happens you feel like, “What did I do to deserve this?” Why was it backfiring on me?’

‘I was very lost. I have to say I felt really confused. I hate talking about it but it was really crazy because I felt so out of touch with myself and when that happens. Nothing you say or do feels like it’s you. You just lose touch of everything that you love and everything you would normally do; how you would dress or how you would say something. It just feels like it’s not coming from you. It’s just this one empty vase. I felt like an empty vessel.”

RiRi On her turning point: One day. I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it.’ ‘I needed that wake-up call in my life. I needed a turning point, and that’s what God was giving to me.”

RiRi On the scrutiny: ‘All this terrible stuff they say to you, it breaks you down, [But] once you’re back on your feet – if you ever make it back on your feet – that’s the ultimate achievement.’

On her new relationship and how she’s coping almost two years later
I feel like I smile for real this time. The smiles come from inside, and it exudes in everything I do. ‘People feel my energy is different. When I smile they can tell that it’s pure bliss and not just a cover up.’

RiRi On whether she’s a different person than she was last year: ‘Yes,’ she answers with surety. ‘I was very lost.’

    i never sign with abusive relationships and domestic violence, but they shouldn’t have asked her questions to make her appear like the victim that became the victor. they should have asked her why the hell she did what she did….teach young women not to have tolerance for abusive relationships, but also teach them honesty. rihanna is a sorry excuse for a role model. i mean, really? who wants to be like the girl with the dumbass, troublesome lyrics in some of her songs? gtfoh

    I totally agree with Michael. I’m about sick of her playing the victim and she had soooo much to do with the incident. No Chris shouldn’t of went Ape on her, but she has done some abusive things to him as well. It’s over, why keep talking about it. SMDH! Abuse is abuse whether is comes from the man or women and she needs to own up to her part in the matter.

  6. CB is a convicted FELON says:

    She wasn’t arrested, he was, and he admitted he beat her after saying he was tired of lying about it through his publicists and lawyers and he wanted to come clean. So now he is a convicted felon and doing his service. So it does matter and she was the victim, period. He said she was and he said he has apologized to her and the public numerous times. Now it is up to the public to decide if they want to continue their fan idolization of him. Whereas, he has some success and forgiveness in the black, R&B community, the white, euro, mainstream is not buying it. There are so many other entertainers that they can choose from they don’t have to have him, CB forced down their throats and apparently they are not having it. CB’s actions shows he is not remorseful and is annoyed with the publics inability to just move on and it shows in his tweets and interviews that he is arrogant, egotistical and narcissistic. He even has his mother, #whodoesthat, on twitter intertwining how great he is with bible verses and selling products. The ignorance does not fall far from the ignorant.
