[an error occurred while processing this directive]Washington, (ANI): Rihanna wants to turn things around after the infamous domestic violence incident involving former boyfriend Chris Brown and shed some light on the reality of domestic violence. The 'Umbrella" singer"s ex-beau Brown, 20, assaulted her before the Grammy Awards kicked off in Los Angeles. But now the stunning pop singer is embracing change.

Named "Woman of the Year" by Glamour, the 21-year-old Barbadian singer has said that despite the shame owing to the media frenzy over the incident, she wants to use her experience to make young women aware of the "big secret" about abusive relationships.

"Teenage girls can''t tell their parents that their boyfriend beats them up...It''s one of the things we (women) hide because it''s embarrassing," CBS News quoted Rihanna as saying. "I want to give as much insight as I can to young women because I feel like I represent a voice that isn''t really heard. Now I can help speak for those women," she added.
