Rihanna Breaks Her SilenceSinger Rihanna is breaking her silence this week in an interview on ABC. She will appear on "20/20" to do a one-on-one interview. This is the first time she's spoken out publicly since February.
Those familiar with Rihanna Fenty and her past relationship with singer Chris Brown knows of the claims of previous abuse and the Feb. 20 incident in which Brown plead guilty to attacking her. Those not familiar with the incident can read my previous article here about Rihanna and Chris Brown that recaps the situation when it was reportedly thought that Rihanna and Chris Brown were getting back together.
Rihanna will do a one-on-one interview on ABC's show "20/20" at 10 p.m. this Friday evening, November 6. Prior to that Rihanna will appear on "Good Morning America" at 7 a.m. Thursday, November 5.
Rihanna is expected to promote her new album, "Rated R," which includes the single "Russian Roulette." She had to speak out at some point in order to get album sales. The album "Rated R" will be released in stores on November 23.
Hopefully Rihanna's story of survival will help other young ladies that have gone through relationship abuse. I'm sure plenty of people will tune into the interview to hear what Rihanna has to say about Chris Brown, their relationship and if she's started to recover from what she's been through.
If you want to know how to watch the Rihanna interview, tune into ABC to watch "Good Morning America" and "20/20" this week. If you miss the Rihanna interview, there may be clips posted on YouTube shortly after it's over.
Interviewers will surely ask Rihanna to talk about her side of the story regarding her relationship and the abuse incident with Chris Brown. Brown appeared in an interview with Larry King Live in August.
For the Feb. 20 incident Chris Brown was sentenced five years probation and 180 days of community labor, which he will serve in Virginia. He has to also do a year of domestic violence classes. This includes Brown stay 50 yards away from Rihanna during this time period unless it's at an industry event. Then he has to stay 10 feet away from her. Chris Brown also can't call, email or text Rihanna.
