Rihanna Says She Couldn’t “Be Responsible For Going Back” To Chris Brown


The first part of Diane Sawyer’s interview with Rihanna aired on “Good Morning America” today and her admissions about the abuse she suffered at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown were far beyond what she acknowledged in her interview with this month’s Glamour. Tearing up at one point, Rihanna explained to Sawyer that after the abuse — one out of “eight or nine” separate times he hit her — became public knowledge she felt ashamed that everyone now knew the “type of person” she was in love with. “I stayed. I even went back after he beat me, which was wrong,” she said. “But again … I’m a human being and people put me on a very unrealistic pedestal. And all these expectations, I’m not perfect.” Still, it was those expectations that eventually motivated her to leave. After taking herself “out of the situation,” she looked at it from the third person and saw it for what it really was. Concerned about the message she was sending to her young female fans, she said:
“It’s completely normal to go back. It’s not right. I learned the hard way, but again, this is what I want people to know. When I realized that my selfish decision for love could result in some young girl getting killed, I could not be easy with that part. I couldn’t be held responsible for going back. Even if Chris never hit me again, who is to say that their boyfriend won’t? Who’s to say that they won’t kill these girls? These are young girls and I just didn’t realize how much of an impact I had on these girls’ lives until that happened.”

Part two of Sawyer’s interview airs tomorrow, in which Rihanna will address what happened the night Chris Brown beat her and was arrested. [ABC News]
