Watch: Rihanna's Interview on 20/20; Chris' New Video to Premiere on Wendy's TV Show!


Last Friday Miss Fenty's in-depth interview aired in its entirety on 20/20 and it was something. For the first time we got to hear what really happened that night in February on that desolate highway in Los Angeles where Chris Brown beat her to a pulp and threatened to kill her.

She did not hold back.

While some of Chris' fans believe Miss Fenty started the fight and deserved the beat down, she said, “It’s ignorance. I can say that. Because even if I hit him first, that makes it OK, what he did to me? They kind of give an excuse for what he did.” And when Diane Sawyer asked Ms Fenty if she hit Chris, she said, “No. I did not hit him, it was an argument.”

Chris, who is said he didn't remember beating Rihanna and threatened to kill her, sent over a statement - written by someone else no doubt - to MTV. It read, in part:

“While I respect Rihanna’s right to discuss the specific events of February 8, I maintain my position that all of the details should remain a private matter between us. I do appreciate her support and wish her the best. I am extremely sorry for what I did, and I accept accountability for my actions. At this point, I am taking the proper steps to learn about me and grow from my mistakes. I only hope that others in similar situations can learn from our experience as well. Abuse of any kind is always wrong. The rest I leave it to God.”

Chris is delusional. If we were him we would be embarrassed.

GET THIS! Chris' video for "Crawl" will premiere on Wendy's TV show this Friday. What?! What is Wendy doing? She's publicly scolded him for beating Rihanna on her TV show after he called her a MAN and she's said his career is over, now she's helping him promote his music? (* coughs. Ratings. coughs.) The fake-osity of it all! We can't take it!

I think Rihanna has most defintely made the right decision on leaving, but most imporantly to see that she is now a role model to many young girls and like she said is more than love in a situation like this is more on what will happen to the next person, because you are now on this petal stole and they are, or they will imitate everything you will. I am very proud of you, as a victim of this same situation, but with a family memeber I have became this strong individual that college and my life is more imporant.Not pleasing people. Thank you, because you have truly made a difference in not only mines, but many people male or female around this entire world. Again thank you and Good Luck!

This interview has sent a shiver through me, being previously exposed to physical and verbal abuse. Rihanna really can't have explained it better - the lying to yourself, the emotional scars that never go away and that should you disregard your feelings of love for that person and look at the situation from the perspective of an outsider. All these things are easy to say in hindsight. When you're in it sometimes you can't see it as others too, and as she says are blinded by love.. You know the behavior is wrong, and you recognise that person has issues, but you want to help them. The longer you stay the worse it becomes, and each time the visible and emotional scars are worse too. People asked me why I stayed so long, and in this interview a statistic that on average it takes 9 instances I think it was, for the woman to make that move.

Previous comment continued because I wrote so much, but I have a lot to say on this topic:

For me it was much more. So many I can count over at least twice over my fingers. I wanted to help him too, and believed he could change and that things would get better. You're in denial I guess, and try to put it to the back of your mind. But you can't as Rihanna says. You never forget, and indeed for me now 32 when it started I was 19 years old, just young like this couple. I finally left him when I was about 25. But to this day, still flashbacks and pain. I have never encountered someone else go through this that has shared their story so frankly. I think Rihanna has done the right thing because she knows being in the public domain she had to, now that what happened and her going back to Chris Brown was in the public eye. She had to do something about it. I see she needed the time to get over it. and can relate that you want to keep what happens hidden. You don't wish harm upon that person who is harming you. You want to help them, and wish them well to move on and overcome their demons. Eventually for me, after pushing for him to seek counselling, and this not being followed through, I hit a brick wall. I realised how down trodden I was becoming. Although weak to some, I guess I was strong in the end. As I came through it, and now looking back and having the flashbacks I've had, I realise how much I endured and how much weight I was carrying on my shoulders. You only realise when you are out of it how much you are suffering and how someone is bringing you down, each incident a little bit more of your strength leaves you because you are made to believe you are worthless and no-one else will want you. It's a long drawn out process of destruction. The person is cunning and manipulative, trying to cut you off from people that are close to you so that you have no support mechanism, or they put fear in others too so that they turn against you and through this you lose friends as well. The old cliche it makes you stronger, but it does. To me it's B.S that Rihanna is using this as a publicity stunt. She's a multi million dollar selling artist, so clearly does not need pity to sell her records. In some strange way it's actually given me some comfort to listen to her account, and I hope that she no longer beats herself up for believing she's set a poor example to other women and young girls who are or have suffered the same. She's done the right thing to come out and explain her account. Had the incident taken place in a more private environment, and not an LA street, perhaps it could have been kept under wraps and private between them. The fact is it didn't, and police and media became involved, so I feel with her status she had no choice. Perhaps this was actually a blessing, because many women suffer in silence and actually wish that no-one learns what's actually happening, because of this shame and embarrassment Rihanna describes. So maybe, had it not happened this way, she'd still be with Chris Brown, and dread the thought, but each incident does get worse. So maybe she's actually been saved. Thank you Rihanna for sharing your story. We support you and I too hope that Chris Brown wakes up, and checks himself to become a better person out of this. Sadly for you, it will take time to heal, and trust someone that much again. Keep your head up baby girl.
