Rihanna’s episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” will air on the OWN Network on August 19, according to a new trailer.
Fans now have three more weeks until they get to see what the two women will talk about during the in-depth interview, which was first announced in June.
According to the spot, the talk was filmed in Rihanna’s homeland of Barbados, where she recently was spotted for her late grandmother’s funeral. The sit-down will air at 9 p.m. ET.
Considering how many headlines Rihanna has been making of late over her personal life, Rih and the talk show maven should have a lot to chat about. In addition to losing her grandmother , Rihanna has been romantically linked to her ex, Chris Brown , though he denies there is anything going on between them. The rumor comes months after she and Brown recorded several tracks together . She was highly speculated to be one of the reasons for the club brawl between Brown and Drake in New York City.
While Oprah dedicated an episode of her talk show to domestic violence after the 2009 Grammy assault of Rihanna by Brown, Rih and Oprah have yet to have a formal interview. Winfrey did have a message for young women who find themselves in abusive relationships during that Rihanna-inspired episode. “If you go back with a man who hits you, it’s because you don’t think you’re worthy of being with a man who won’t,” Winfrey said during that show. “I’ve said before, ‘Love doesn’t hurt, and if a man hits you once, he will hit you again.’ ”
Rihanna later appeared on Oprah’s show in January 2010, where she performed Bob Marley’s classic “Redemption Song” to benefit the victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
