Rihanna starts to talk about that night

ABC has begun rolling out Diane Sawyer's interviews with Rihanna about the attack by Chris Brown in Hancock Park last February and her relationship with the violent singer. She talks about being embarrassed by letting love cloud her view of Brown, and the personal wake-up call she felt when she realized how many young women look to her as a role model. This clip is from today's "Good Morning America."
