9. Oprah Winfrey On Rihanna
The 'We Found Love' singer was criticised by many for forgiving Chris Brown after he assaulted her three years ago, which lead to the end of their relationship. Rumours have been rife that the pair have got back together and the Bajan star admitted she still loved Chris during an in-depth conversation with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year. The host admitted the singer's ability to forgive should be commended and treated as a lesson to others as she looks to inspire. "You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big, wide open heart. She was in the space of forgiveness. And that she learned a lesson, that she was repeating with Chris Brown exactly what she needed to learn from her father," she said.
