Rihanna on Chris Brown: ‘Who’s Going to Help Him?’

Oprah and her OWN network staff have released yet another snippet of the emotional interview between the media mogul and Rihanna. Airing on Sunday August 19 at 9 p.m. eastern, the Bajan pop star sat down with Lady O in a televised interview to show Oprah around her home island of Barbados but also to share a look into her all-too-public past with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. From Idolator:

“I lost my best friend,” Rihanna tells Winfrey through tears in a new preview for the episode. “Like, everything I knew switched — switched overnight. And I couldn’t control that, so I had to deal with that, and that’s not easy for me to understand or interpret. And it’s not easy to interpret on camera. Not with the world watching.”

In the clip, Rihanna goes on to say the following: “It became a circus and I felt protective. I felt like the only person they hate right now is him. It was a weird, confusing space to be in because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help… Nobody’s gonna say he needs help. Everybody’s gonna say he’s a monster.”

And the drama continues. Should be interesting, no? I’ll be tuning in or at least DVR’ing. Watch the clip below:
