Oprah Winfrey Conducts An Interview With 50 Cent to air on OWN Network
Now im not going to say that Jay-Z has totally opened the door for all rappers but he has definitely opened Oprah’s eyes in some ways. On the upcoming episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter which airs on OWN she is having a sit down with Mr. I Get Money. 50 Cent will be sitting down with the talk show Queen and they are discussing everything from music culture, family, fatherhood, inspirations and more. Anybody who knows 50 knows that he made it no secret that he did not like Oprah. During a visit to The View he told the cast that he named his dog “Oprah Winfree” 50 Cents’s Bitch is the name of his pet Twitter page. Now if your wondering where this pot of beef is stewing from, it began way back in 2006 when “fiddy” accused Oprah of having a lack of diversity when it came to the guest on her show. The dislike grew much more when 50 heard that she supposedly had a rapper banned from her show. So 50 just knew it was because of her dislike for rap music. Well now the two have squashed the beef and are sitting down and chopping up some good news. This should be very interesting…
She gave a little insight on how she felt after conducting the two part interview which was held at 50 Cent’s grandmother house, this is what she posted to her facebook page…
In the car having just left Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent. Gotta say, he was quite surprising. We talked for 2 hrs. You’ll see Part 1 this Sunday. Here are 5 things I learned from Fiddy:
1. He meditates regularly.
2. Received his mantra from Deepak Chopra, whose book he’s currently reading.
3. He was not allowed to use curse words in his grandmother’s house and still follows that rule.
4. A recent conversation with philanthropist Ray Chambers was life changing for him.
And my favorite….
5. He believes either pray or worry…no need for both.
Great conversation about rap culture, fatherhood, love, and life. He describes himself as two people - Curtis and 50 Cent - I was fascinated to hear his description of them both. Really glad I did it. Really liked him. Watch Next Chapter, Sunday 9/8c.
