50 Cent has never been shy about his love/hate relationship with Oprah Winfrey. Now for the first time, the hip-hop mogul meets the media titan for an interview to air on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” this Sunday at 9 p.m. on OWN. Oprah visited Curtis at his grandmother’s house this week.
“Great conversation about rap culture, fatherhood, love, and life,” said Oprah. “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.”
50 even named his dog after Oprah and a cat after her friend Gayle. “It started out negative ’cause I thought Oprah didn’t like hip-hop culture,” he previously told the ladies of “The View.” “I got the dog and now I love Oprah.”
Watch a preview of the episode, which also features an interview with Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris.
