Rihanna speaks out about being beaten by her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, and her decision to go back to him, and later decision to leave him.

I think it's good that she's speaking out on this topic. "F--- love." We hear so much that "love conquers all" etc, but it doesn't, and it shouldn't. Love yourself more. And she does.

Also, I think it's good that Rihanna realizes that because she lives her life in the public eye, she has a responsibility to accept that and act accordingly.

And she's speaking out that she didn't do this to herself - it happened to her. She's embarrassed she was with a guy like that, but she knows it's not her fault. No one deserves that.

The complete interview will air Friday night on 20/20.
