Rihanna Finally Speaks

Rihanna has finally decided to talk about her relationship with Chris Brown and the incident involving his arrest and the leaking of her pictures after the assault. She says in Glamour magazine:

“It was humiliating; that is not a photo you would show to anybody. I felt completely taken advantage of. I felt like people were making it into a fun topic on the Internet, and it’s my life. I was disappointed, especially when I found out the photo was [supposedly leaked by] two women.” She adds: “Domestic violence is a big secret. No kid goes around and lets people know their parents fight. Teenage girls can’t tell their parents that their boyfriend beat them up. You don’t dare let your neighbor know that you fight. It’s one of the things we [women] will hide, because it’s embarrassing. My story was broadcast all over the world for people to see, and they have followed every step of my recovery. 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. Now I can help speak for those women.”

Her interview with Diane Sawyer will air Thursday morning on Good Morning America. She said to Diane, “It happened to me. It could happen to anyone.”

I really felt for Rihanna when all of that shit went down, but I hoped that she would eventually decide to speak out and be a positive voice for women, and it seems like she’s ready and willing to do just that. I’m so sorry that she had to go through that, but she’s an amazingly strong woman, and I hope that she can help to bring awareness to one of the best kept secrets our society still has.

    I am happy that she is finding the strength to talk about this. I hate that it happened to her, but she is using it for positive, and that's a good thing.

    I am glad she is ready to talk about it. I personally think the public and the media put a lot of pressure on her to be a spokesperson for DV.

    I am glad she was given some healing space.

    I’m glad too. There was something about her silence that made us all uncomfortable I think (though that was totally her choice).
