We’ve already seen clips of a teary eyed Rihanna’s appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter. Tonight (August 19th), the entire interview aired on OWN and here it is for you to peep in case you missed it or want to revisit. A lot of people were asking, “Why does Chris Brown have to come up?” It just does. Safe bet even more people would have been irate if Oprah Winfrey had not asked Rih Rih about that fateful night involving Chris Breezy laying his hands (and vice versa) on the Bajan Pop star, and its aftermath.

“Nobody’s going to say he needs help,” said the woman born Robyn Rihanna Fenty. “Everybody’s going to say he’s a monster without looking at the source … and I was more concerned about him,” she said. “I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched, switched in a night and I couldn’t control that. It’s not easy for me to understand or interpret, and it’s not easy to interpret on camera, not with the world watching.”

Check out Rihanna’s full interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter after the break.
