Rihanna appeared on “Good Morning America” this morning to talk to Diane Sawyer for the first time about her relationship with Chris Brown and the importance of leaving an abusive relationship. She said she realized how many young woman and girls looked up to her as a role model and wanted to do the right thing not only for herself, but by them, too.
“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 responsible for that. Even if Chris never hit me again, who’s to say their boyfriend won’t? Who’s to say they won’t kill these girls? I didn’t realize how much of an impact I had on these girls’ lives until that happened.”
