On Friday November 6, 2009, Diane Sawyer’s interview with pop star Rihanna aired. She spoke about the events that unfolded on February 8, 2009. Rihanna explained that she was very “embarrassed” about going back to her boyfriend, Chris Brown, after the incident.
The picture that circulated after the incident, showing her face completely battered, left her “humiliated” since she could not believe people leaked the photo and felt taken advantage of. She also said that “love is blind” and when faced with a situation like hers, she said “f love” and get out no matter how much you love someone.
