Now that the silence surrounding February’s unfortunate turn of events has been broken, Rihanna feels better and perhaps free to move forward. “It was the biggest weight lifted off my chest,” she told MTV News Monday. “If you watch the interview(20/20), you see it was a subject that I didn’t talk about for the eight months that I didn’t talk about it, so that was my first real time opening up.” Admitting that she “had a lot of tension bottled up,” Rihanna looks forward to focus on her new album. Set for release November 23, “Rated R” features collaborative efforts with Justin Timberlake, Tricky Stewart, Ne-Yo and more. In related news, Rihanna will premiere the anticipated video for “Russian Roulette” Friday. Sources say the Anthony Mandler directed cut will premiere during 20/20 on ABC (check local listings).
