Not gonna lie, this Rihanna/Oprah interview cannot come fast enough!
Oprah recently jetted over to RiRi's hometown of Barbados for an upcoming episode of her series, Oprah's Next Chapter, but before the interview fun could begin, Rihanna took the media mogul for a spin around her hood where everyone still calls her Robyn.
"I thought she was going to be kind of a badass, a hard edged rocker pop woman," marvels Oprah in the above preview, adding, "Nothing could have been farther from the truth."
And to prove she's still got it, Lady O gets RiRi to break down in tears at one point as the singer speaks candidly about fame and the loss of her "best friend" Chris Brown.
"It's amazing how lonely you can feel," she admits, addressing her infamous beating at one point with a face streaked with tears. "It was embarrassing. It was humiliating. I lost my best friend."
Rihanna's episode of Oprah's Next Chapter airs Sunday, August 19 at 9 p.m. on OWN.
