Rihanna and Chris Brown each hit national television last night in what I called a “Battle” of sorts. Rihanna’s 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer finally aired in it’s entirety and if you’ve seen the previous GMA clips, you’ve basically seen it all. Rihanna does, however, touch on why she felt the need to return to Chris’ side so soon after the beat down and why she eventually decided it was best to let the relationship go. I honestly felt that she was being sincere, although the timing of the interview has been questioned, specifically in light of Rih-Rih’s new album dropping soon.
Rihanna admits she still has feelings for Chris but says that she’s “annoyed” that he still lives in her heart. Chris, in his MTV interview with Sway, also says that he still cares for Rihanna and admits that he’s made some poor choices these past few months since the attack. He attempts to address some of the criticisms he’s received over his twittering habits and how people perceive him as not taking his sentence seriously. MTV also brings in Dr. Callahan ,who has also appeared on Oprah, to give a bit of insight on dating/domestic abuse.
