Oprah Winfrey and 50 Cent have called a truce over their six-year feud!
The talk show queen sat down with the ganster rapper for an interview on OWN's Oprah's Next Chapter to settle their differences, and among the issues were 50 Cent's criticism of Oprah's audience demographic, and Oprah's disagreement over his use of the N-word in songs.
The sit down, which took place at Cent's grandparents home in Queens, N.Y, came as a surprise to the Get Rich Or Die Tryin' star, and it seemed he couldn't be happier about putting the beef to rest. "This is a huge milestone to me -- just being in your presence and on the show," he said. "That's a huge accomplishment."
Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, didn't let the truce happen before he spoke his mind on how it started in the first place. "I would see moments when you would discuss your feelings on the culture and everything that was wrong with the culture was what was on my CD, and I was like, 'Oh, she doesn't like me'," Jackson said. "I was saying, 'If I can't be your friend, at least let me be your enemy, so I co-exist."
Oprah fired back, "That's interesting. I don't spend a lot of time looking at people who don't like me, but I did hear that you said something like I had white women in my audience that were as old as your grandmother. I felt that that was a pointed criticism," she explained.
In the end, the two agreed to disagree and put the bad blood behind them. Leave it up to O to handle things like a pro!
