There is something about what celebrities do and say that tend to have thousands of people interested and eager to hear and read stories from what celebrities wear to ill- advised statements they make. Whatever the case may be it is certain the celebrities gain attention by their actions, now some of their actions speak louder than others in terms of physically doing something. On the other hand, you have celebrities like hip hop diva and Barbados native Rihanna that have been known by not only their music but the public relationships they had, and statements they have said. Some of you may recall the 2009 incident that was wildly publicize when Chris Brown had hit then Girlfriend at the time Rihanna in the face.
Chris Brown received tremendous backlash that included losing T.V. commercial sponsorship, none of his songs played on radio for a while, a smear image of him being a good guy, along with assault charges and probation. It caused a huge debate among Rihanna and Chris Brown fans, as well as bringing up the question of “Why did he hit her?” Was it in retaliation from something Rihanna did or did Chris just lose his cool and acted out of frustration? Well, Rihanna recently made an appearance on Oprah Sunday night August, 19, 2012 to put the record straight and explain what happened between her and Chris, and to also tell the world that she is still in love with Chris.
“We were very young and very spontaneous we had problems just like any other young couple, but we were falling in love and going at a really rapid pace, we forgot about ourselves as individuals.” Rihanna said in an interview on Oprah.
She went on to explain to Oprah that at first she was angry, frustrated that Chris would hit her, but after seeing the devastating backlash that Chris Brown had to endure she actually felt bad for him. “I felt like the only person that people hated at that time was him,” Rihanna said. “It was a weird and confusing space to be in because as angry, hurt and betrayed as I was I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help,”.
Rihanna had a very serious face on when explaining to Oprah that she thought she hated Chris Brown for a short period of time after the incident, but mentioned that it was not hatred that she was feeling, it was the feeling of their love being tarnished that made her feel like a different person. She and Chris Brown are no longer dating at this time, but that does not mean that Rihanna’s heart has fully healed from her heartbreak. Rihanna said that she has completely forgave him and still cares about him a lot; in fact she said to Oprah that she is still in love with him.
“I think he was the love of my life, he was my first love and I see that he loved me the same way, I truly love him and the main thing for me is that he’s at peace. I’m not at peace if he’s not happy or he’s still lonely, it actually matters that he finds that peace,” Rihanna said.
The two young hip hop artist are among some of the best music artist in their genre today and at the ripe age of 23 and 24 they may be close to the peak of their careers if not already there. The question remains, is it possible for a new connection between the two? Could they give music fans the relationship they once loved? Well they have already been featured on a few of each other’s singles, and they have been seen being “Very close friends” whenever they hang out together so who knows there still may be a spark there.
