Rihanna: I’m terrified of fame, it’s amazing how lonely you feel

Rihanna may come across as feisty, fun and fearless, but we're about to see a very different side of her, as interviewer extraordinaire, Oprah Winfrey managed to show us the star's sensitive and vulnerable side.

During a special documentary which was filmed last week for the chat-show host's new TV channel, Rihanna holds a tissue and is about to cry as she says:

"I am super duper terrified of the pedestal that comes with fame...

"It's amazing how lonely you can feel."

And if the emotional openness of RiRi doesn't win you over, Oprah does her absolute best to ensure you're entranced by the star's down-to-earth nature.

The trailer for the American documentary shows the Bajan beauty head back to her old house and greet her former neighbours, and it's at this point Oprah is pleasantly surprised.

Oprah's voiceover says: "This is how you know who someone is — how people react to them.

"When we went back to the neighbourhood where she [Rihanna] grew up, the reaction surprised me.

"It wasn't like a big superstar, a megastar pop star had arrived in the neighbouhood, it was just Robyn [Rihanna's real name] as if she'd just popped to the grocery store and came back - it was great to see."

It sure was — as we witness the singer hugging and chatting to the locals.

It's not all emosh though — RiRi bursts into laughter when Oprah tells her how regularly she uses the f-word.
