'I was an empty vessel'

Rihanna has given her most honest interview yet about her abusive relationship with Chris Brown which ended after his attack on her after the Grammy awards. The singer admitted that being with Brown made her feel like 'an empty vessel'.

Rihanna revealed in Marie Claire, 'I was very lost. I have to say I felt really confused. I hate talking about it but it was really crazy because I felt so out of touch with myself and when that happens it's scary because nothing you say or do feels like it's you. You just lose touch of everything that you love and everything that you would normally do; how you would dress or how you would say something. It just feels like it's not coming from you. It's just this one empty vase. I felt like an empty vessel.'

She also spoke about criticism of her involvement in Eminem's song, 'Love the way you lie', 'He confronted himself on it. He basically gives insight into what goes on in the mind of a couple in a domestically violent relationship. Every word in that song is true. It would take somebody who's been on the inside to understand how magical those lyrics are. Everybody loves the song but the lyrics can never hit home until you've seen it, witnessed it, in your home or experienced it yourself.'
