Iconic television host Oprah Winfrey is heightening up the anticipation for this weekend's special one-on-one interview with rap star 50 Cent by publicly dishing out details of her experience alongside him.
Winfrey hopped on Twitter and gushed over hanging out with the G-Unit boss.
""@CrusePhoto: @Oprah Where are you today?" in NYC getting ready to Interview "Fiddy". Took sunset photo yesterday . Thought of u.," she tweeted June 6th.
"Just leaving Fiddy's house ..what a great conversation.. http://instagr.am/p/Li665HSS-h/ "
"@MastinKipp can you believe the Fiddy meditates? He was so calm. And charming!" (Oprah Winfrey's Twitter)
This weekend, 50 will come face-to-face with his one-time media rival on "Next Chapter."
It's been nearly three years since the death of her father, Michael Jackson. Oprah visits with Paris Jackson. Then, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is one of the most successful and controversial rappers ever. After years of feud rumors between him and Oprah, she sits down with him for the first time from his grandmother's home. (Oprah)
Back in March, the rap star discussed his initial problems with Winfrey.
50 was back to chat with the ladies of "The View" on Friday. The hip-hop tycoon, whose empire is reportedly worth over $200 million, sat down on the couch with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Sherri Shepherd to discuss love, philanthropy, and his dog Oprah. A dapper Curtis provided the male perspective on love. "When a man says I love you the first time, he means this really feels good," he said. "It's such a big commitment. It does mean something." He also explained why he named his dog after Oprah Winfrey. "It started out negative 'cause I thought Oprah didn't like hip-hop culture," said Fif. "I got the dog and now I love Oprah." (Rap-Up)
In 2006, he said Oprah did not treat rappers fairly on her now-defunct "Oprah Winfrey" show.
He usually saves his beefs for other rappers; this time, 50 Cent is going after Oprah Winfrey. In an interview with The Associated Press, 50 complained that Winfrey rarely invites rappers on her talk show: "I think she caters to older white women." "Oprah's audience is my audience's parents," the 29-year-old rapper said. "So, I could care less about Oprah or her show." (CBS News)
