Oprah Interviews 50 Cent for OWN

The Queen of Media has an eye-opening chat with the hip hop king.

Published June 7, 2012

After a long history of not exactly seeing eye-to-eye, 50 Cent and Oprah are set to reconcile on the next episode of the latter's OWN network show, Oprah's Next Chapter.

Teasing the episode, which will air this Sunday, Oprah said she enjoyed the time she spent with 50 and was glad they had the heart-to-heart.

“Great conversation about rap culture, fatherhood, love, and life,” she said. “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.”

The interview took place at 50's grandmother's house. Writing on her blog, Oprah shared five things that she learned from the hyper achieving rapper and mogul during their revealing interview.

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.
5. He believes either pray or worry…no need for both.

Oprah will also talk to Michael Jackson’s teen daughter, Paris, during the episode that will air on OWN Sunday night at 9 PM/8 central.
