That's Rihanna's firm advice to women of any age facing domestic violence.
The first of the pop star's televised interviews with Diane Sawyer aired this morning on Good Morning America. The 21-year-old sat poised and beautiful as she explained how she went back to Chris Brown after he beat her last February, how she managed to break free from him and how she feels about it now.
Rihanna declares she's "strong" but is ashamed at how the whole relationship went down.
"I fell in love with that person—that's embarrassing," she says. "That's embarrassing that that's the type of person that I fell in love with, so far in love, so unconditional [that] I went back."
Sawyer noted that, on average, woman will take a beating seven times before leaving. The 21-year-old's response was chilling.
