Award-winning songstress, scandal queen and party lover Rihanna is usually controlled and put together when she does interviews with the press. However, in her recent interview with Oprah Winfrey for "Oprah's Next Chapter," the pop star invites the talk show icon to her native Barbados to chat about her career and personal life, even getting a bit tearful when she talks about her past with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

"It was embarrassing, it was humiliating," Rihanna states, her eyes brimming with tears. "I lost my best friend."

The "Where Have You Been" songstress is clearly referring to the domestic violence assault she experienced at the hands of Brown while the two were dating.

During their sit-down, Rihanna even admits to Oprah, "You keep surprising me today!" as she both laughs and cries while answering pointed questions.

Oprah also asks RiRi if Chris Brown is her "true love." What do you think she'll say? Tune in to "Oprah's Next Chapter" Aug. 19 at 9PM on OWN to find out her reply.
