Rihanna's Barbados adventure with Oprah airs this weekend on OWN and by the looks of this clip, sh*t's about to get real.
Rihanna emotionally discusses Chris Brown after the jump.
Rihanna on Chris Brown - Oprah's Next Chapter
Rihanna tells Mama O: "It was embarrassing, it was humiliating. I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched, switched in a night, and I couldn't control that.
"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. 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," she added.
With domestic abuse being prevalent in both the straight and gay communities, we wonder how many Instincters are identifying with some of what Rihanna's saying right now?
Does this change your perspective at all on the Rihanna/Chris Brown incident?
Oprah's Next Chapter airs Sunday, August 19 on OWN.
