Rapper 50 Cent And Oprah End Fued
Oprah Winfrey and 50 Cent have ended their six year feud.
The talk show host and the rapper sat down for an interview on OWN's Oprah's Next Chapter to sort out their differences. Among them, Winfrey said she had taken offense when 50 whose real name is Curtis Jackson -- once said of her daytime talk show: "Oprah's audience is my audience's parents, so I could care less about Oprah or her show."
During the interview which took place at the Queens, N.Y., house of Jackson's grandparents, who raised him after his mother's death in 1983 Jackson indicated that he was surprised the interview with Winfrey was actually happening.
"This is a huge milestone for me just being in your presence and on the show," he said. "That's a huge accomplishment." The two even embraced before the interview got under way
Winfrey went on to ask Jackson about his "audience" comment and brought up her own public criticism of rappers' use of the N word and misogynistic lyrics in their music.
Winfrey said she couldn't understand why her criticism of rap music lyrics led Jackson to think she didn't like him personally.
The two also agreed to disagree about the use of the N-word.
"When you're actually using it with malice in your heart, you can feel the difference," Jackson said.
Winfrey also asked Jackson about his decision to name his dog after her.
"That was not a compliment," she said. "I heard you had a bitch named Oprah."
I think Oprah will do anything now for some ratings and to make some money....
