Rihanna preps first post-assault interview
There hasn't been a day this week that's been short of Rihanna coverage, and that gravy train won't stop until every last piece of tonight's "20/20" hasn't been chopped and dissected.
The pop star is made an appearance on the news-feature show tonight (Nov. 6) at 10 p.m. in her first interview discussing Chris Brown and his assault on her back in February. Part of the interview aired on "Good Morning America."
Check out this clip: she discusses how she felt like she needed to be an example to other women afflicted by violence from their boyfriends. She touched on when she returned to Brown briefly after the incident. It's really breathtaking, in a way, how specific she gets.
She also talks on how the fight started and what she thought happened to Chris as he hit her. "I fell in love with that person. It's embarrassing that that's the type of person I fell in love with."
No doubt, Rihanna and her handlers carefully chose this opportunity to coincide with the PR cycle of promoting her upcoming release "Rate R," due Nov. 23. The track "Hard" just leaked in the last 24 hours.
It also comes after a couple media blitzes Brown has done on Hot 97 and "Larry King Live." Not to let Rihanna have cake, eat it too, and spit it at his bad name further, Brown scheduled an interview with MTV at the last minute for tonight, to again how really really really sorry he is. By the way, his album "Graffiti" drops on Dec. 15.
