RihRih Says Beatdown Gave Her Liberation: ‘I Needed That In My Life To Know How To Say Fawk Off!’

We thought Rihanna was done talking about her domestic violence incident with Chris Brown. We thought wrong.

The Bajan beauty opened up to American Vogue for the first time for their April issue and she gave some eye opening insight on how fame has shaped her for better or worse. #TeamBreezy can rest at ease though, the bulk of her negative comments are directed at her father for his tendency to run to the tabloids with false stories or peddling pictures:

“It really makes me question what I have become to my father. Like, what do I even mean to him?” “It’s really strange. That’s the only word I can think of to describe it, because you grow up with your father, you know him, you are part of him for goodness’ sakes! And then he does something so bizarre that I can’t begin to wrap my mind around it. You hear these horror stories about people going behind people’s backs and doing strange things, but you always think, Not my family. My father would never do that to me.”

That’s got to be hard.

Rihanna says she first saw that side of her dad after the domestic violence incident with Chris Brown:

“That was the first time,” she says. “My dad went to the press and just told them a bunch of lies. Because he hadn’t talked to me after… that whole thing … He never called to find out how I was doing, if I was alive, nothing. He just never called. He went straight to the press and got a check. And now he does it again. Now I’m like, Whatever. I tried.”

RihRih, you should call Blohan — she knows all about money hungry daddies. Then again, maybe you shouldn’t call Blohan, she might try and hit that!

      Yeah, I’m wondering why this is still news. It was unfortunate, but we’re now 2 years in…Chris paid his dues, and is now trying to bounce back, and Rihanna has reaped more fame in the process of this whole mess. Life is short; let’s move on.


    WTF is she actually condoning this. black women are the biggest suffers of domestic violence. and shes making black women look retarded.

    Y’all jealous h..o..e..s  grow up

  • JustAshley

    I don’t think she’s condoning this. I think she just learned from it. At least I hope she has…

    Sidenote: I told ya’ll she had major daddy issues. Its why she acts all hyper-sexual and dresses super provocative.

    Getting your @ss whooped liberated you…

    As much as I want this topic to go away, it won’t. The funny part is that both of them are trying to keep the situation relevant by always screaming and whining about how they’ve moved on from it. Ohhhhkaaaaaay. The whole world and everybody in it except you two have moved on (excluding the Rihanna stans and Chris groupies). Both of them need to get together and just f*ck so they can stop being babies.

    i’m tired of hearing about it, but maybe it will take time for her to get over it. p.s. she looks great

    Just when Chris Brown thought his past is dead and buried, it comes back from the grave to haunt him. This is not going to end well. I see Ike Turner 2. What a shame, he is talented.

    She is the one that got beat she can talk about it if she wants. A lot of people are acting like she is in the wrong. Come on now aside from RiRi and Chris B and them being celebrities its a serious thing and can follow you for the rest of your life.

    If one of you women got beat,you wouldn’t want someone telling you,_just stop talking about it!

    • VirgoJewel

      I personally, know several abuse victims- even one whose man beat her and left her wit and a incurable STD and even they don’t talk about that shti as much as this broad do.

    • nonymoussss

      i actually agree.VirgoJewel. if there is one person i know who was a victim of DV. its my Mother. and she does not/never talked abut it. even today, now that i’m an adult. she just wont discuss it with anyone. so it does make me wonder why she(Rhi) feels the need to discuss it so much, or ever. most times privacy is an issue in situations like this.or simply just trying really hard to distance your self from the situation that happened 2 days, 5 months. 2 years ago… the fact that she responds to any question regarding the “incident” at all, is very interesting… i’m not judging her. and just like must sensible human beings, i dont condone what happened. based on what “we know”…but like someone above said. her fame has benefited more from this than ever before. and this is what she is riding/milking to get to where she is going. its pretty sad and just lame. again another person said. the other women who are part of the statistics are not being given interviews and being recognised single handedly because of “their incidents”…its pretty irritating. i wonder whos lips Rihanna’s name would have been on, if 2 years ago didnt happen…

    I wonder what her a$$ looks like in that dress she’s wearing on the cover… Seriously, I do… I know she doesn’t have much of an a$$ but I believe it would look good in that dress…

    Hmmm, wear would you wear something like that???

    Just thinking out loud…

  • wtf!


  • http://hotmail Islandbaby

    So tired of this sh!t! Every day, every hour, every minute, even as i speek a woman is been abused by her husband, her boyfriend, her partner. They are the nameless, and they will not get an award for woman of the year. When are we going to stop acting as if Rihann, is the first and only woman ever been abused by her boyfriend? Don’t get me wrong I don’t hate Rihanna, it’s been two years now..are they (CB /Rihanna) to ride this for the next five years? Unfortunatly, this a$$ult has giving her more fame than her music. Sad but true.

    By no means do I condone abused. And yes she was the one who was attact, and she’s the one with the scars. But at some point in their lives they have to move on. How long should the public throw her a pitty party? I throw her a pitty pary for a hole year. Now I am done.
