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
