Are you ready to see a side of Rihanna you’ve never seen before? Oprah pays a visit to Rihanna in her hometown in Barbados, and Rihanna opens up to her in an interview.
Oprah reveals before visiting Rihanna, she had some preconceptions about the singer. She thought Rihanna was going to be a bad-ass, “kind of a hard-edged rocker pop woman. Hm.” However, Oprah was surprised by her visit. “Nothing could have been farther from the truth.”
In her interview, Rihanna opens up to Oprah about her fame, Chris Brown, and more. You’ll see Rihanna get emotional as she talks about her life. In a little teaser of the interview, Oprah says it was nice to see Rihanna in her element, in her natural surroundings of Barbados. No one treated her like a celebrity, and she was 100% herself. Rihanna was happy to be home, and Oprah got a great sense of who she was.
Oprah’s interview with Rihanna will air on Sunday, August 19 at 9PM on OWN. Break out the tissue box because tears will definitely be shed!
