Oprah will be interviewing rapper 50 Cent on OWN Network on her show Oprah's Next Chapter. The rapper is one of the most controversial rap figures today. Many years ago, 50 and Oprah had beef because 50 thought that Oprah disliked hip-hop. He even admitted he got a dog and named it Oprah, but he, now, says he loves Oprah. She wrote on her Facebook and Twitter pages:
"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." –Oprah

1:20 PM PT – Lindsay was driving the car, and we're told she's saying that the accident wasn't her fault, claiming the 18 wheeler cut her off.
Lindsay has been released from the hospital and already back to work on Lifetime's biopic "Liz & Dick."
Update: TMZ reports:
The guy driving the giant truck that got rear ended by Lindsay Lohan Friday tells TMZ … LiLo was trying to flee the scene and when he tried to stop her … her people tried to buy his silence.
Lindsay was driving on the PCH yesterday when she collided with a semi-truck driven by James (we're leaving out his last name). Lohan was trailed by a Cadillac Escalade (which James refers to as a limousine) … driven by someone connected with her Lifetime movie.
James tells TMZ after the accident, he called 911 as Lindsay and her male assistant got out of the Porsche and into the Escalade. James says the assistant picked up a pink bag, "filled it up with something" and then put clothes on top of it.
James claims the driver of the Escalade was trying to keep him away from the SUV. James says he wanted to exchange info with Lindsay (whom he did not recognize) but it was apparent to him she was about to flee the scene.
James says the Escalade driver offered him money, saying they could "go to the bank" and withdraw some cash.
James says the Escalade driver and Lindsay's assistant put on a full court press: "Him and the guy took me across the street and told me this was some kind of famous person and they didn't want to be in the media. But I'd already called 911 because they were trying to get away from the scene. But they packed a bag and then the limousine driver told me, 'Don't mention the bag to the cops.'"
Lindsay is claiming:
According to our sources, Lindsay is sticking with the "truck cut me off!!!" story, but with a twist … she claims she slammed on the brakes … but nothing. And get this … somehow Lindsay says she was told the brakes on the rental were replaced two days before the crash.
