Rihanna Wants To Help Victims

Rihanna felt like "Britney Spears" after she was attacked by Chris Brown.

The 'Umbrella' hitmaker was astonished by the attention she attracted after she was abused by her then-boyfriend in February, likening it to that of which the 'Womanizer' singer received following her well-publicised breakdown in 2007.

She said: "I went to sleep as Rihanna and woke up as Britney Spears. That was the level of media chaos that happened the next day."

Despite the horrific attack and subsequent publicity it generated, the 21-year-old singer is trying to remain positive and wants to be a role model for other women experiencing similar ordeals.

She added: "The positive thing that has come out of my situation is that people can learn from that.

"I want to give as much insight as I can to young women, because I feel like I represent a voice that really isn't heard.

"Domestic violence is a big secret. No kid goes around and lets people know their parents fight.

"Teenage girls can't tell their parents that their boyfriend beat them up. You don't dare let your neigHBOur know that you fight.

"It's one of the things women will hide, because it's embarrassing. My story was broadcast all over the world for people to see, and they have followed every step of my recovery."

Chris attacked Rihanna in his car as they left a pre-Grammy Awards party in February, repeatedly punching her in the face and biting her arms.

He pleaded guilty to assault and in August was sentenced to six months of community service, 12 months of domestic violence counselling and five years probation.

The judge also issued a restraining order which requires him to stay at least 100 yards from Rihanna for five years.
