If you can bear it


That Oprah - she's not filthy rich for nothing you know. Her latest dalliance with emotional turmoil for cash (to put it bluntly) sees Ms Winfrey visiting Rihanna's childhood home in Barbados, and having what seems to be an intense heart-to-heart with her on the sofa, covering everything from fame and the f-word to her abusive relationship with Chris Brown.

Nothing, it seems, is taken lightly.

rihanna interview with oprah winfrey

In the trailers for the programme (airing on Oprah's TV network OWN, clever) we see Rihanna crying, admitting that;

"As angry as I was - as angry and hurt and betrayed - I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help. And who's going to help him? Nobody's going to say he needs help, everybody's going to say he's a monster, without looking at the source, and I was more concerned about him."

Rihanna's been styled very softly for the chat; flowing, wavy hair, a modest, feminine dress adorned with flowers, and a natural looking face with no harsh make-up.

Oh Oprah you emotional demon, this looks AWESOME. You're very wiley.
