Rihanna, 24-year-old Barbadian singer, recently admitted that she suffered from an emotional breakdown when recording her album "Talk That Talk."
In a video interview titled "Road to Talk That Talk," the singer admitted that she broke down after the completion of her album, which was recorded between February 2011 to November 2011. In the video, the singer spoke about battling flu that left her hooked to an IV drip in the hospital.
However, she became frustrated after feeling that her team was overworking her in her state of illness.
"One morning I woke up and started crying so hard. I finally just got to my bed from the IV [drip] and I was just like, 'Good I can actually get to sleep tonight' because we stayed up [all night' and I finished [the album] at 5pm the day before," Rihanna said in the video. "So now I'm like 'One good night of rest.' I get in bed and it must have been two hours in before my phone started going off."
The popular entertainer said she became so overwhelmed that she acted out of character.
"I started crying. I cried for 10 minutes really, really hard in my pillow. It was aggressive. I don't cry loads," she admitted. "If I cry it's because I'm very angry and I can't do anything about it, because I've run into a dead end that's when the tears would come down. But this time I needed to hear it, I almost wanted to punch somebody."
Rihanna further explained the reasoning behind her overwhelmed state.
"But I was so overwhelmed and the emails coming in were so inconsiderate," she said. "Everything that was going on with me [with the drip] was complete disregard with everything that had just happened prior."
Still, the singer said it was all worth it to see the album completed.
"When I got the copies in my hand, it was so worth it. I would never take it back," she said. "At times I wished things could have been different and easier but then I didn't really care when I got the album. The fact it was so difficult, the album feels so much better."
