Oprah headed to Barbados over the weekend to interview pop star Rihanna for Oprah’s Next Chapter. The 24-year-old songbird was shown giving the media maven a tour of the Caribbean island, which is also her beloved hometown. Last month, a TV ad surfaced confirming the sitdown, something Oprah’s been itching to do since the 2009 incident between RiRi and then boyfriend Chris Brown.
After the interview, the OWN founder posted to Twitter: “@rihanna and I finishing up interview. What a refreshing surprise she is.”
On Sunday, she followed up with: “Still in Beautiful Barbados will be watching [Super Soul Sunday] streaming live pool side 11 am.”
The highly anticipated episode will air August 19 on OWN.
