Oct 25, 2012 01:25 PM


Oprah Winfrey has landed Justin Bieber for an in-depth interview which will air on OWN's Oprah's Next Chapter.

The talk show host, 58, visited the 18-year-old singing sensation in Chicago while he was on his Believe world tour. Biebs, who Tweeted that he was "swaggin it out" with Lady O, confessed that he rarely leaves girlfriend Selena Gomez's side. He adds:

    "I never make [Selena] separate from me because I don't want her to ever feel like I'm ashamed of her. Because I feel like a lot of guys do that, especially in the business."

The Bieber interview will air November 25.

Oprah Winfrey Reveals That She's Reading Fifty Shades Of Grey!

Oct 16, 2012 12:53 PM


Oprah Winfrey is featured in the November 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and the 58-year-old television queen chats about business, pleasure and yes, she admits to reading Fifty Shades Of Grey! Somehow we're doubtful this raunchy and overrated series will end up in her book club anytime soon...

On her decision to start OWN, Lady O says, “This is the deal, when you have reached the peak of the mountaintop, which is where I was with the Oprah show, you have absolutely no worries. I’d been in the right space at the right time, and I’d done that the best way possible for 25 years. But you have two choices: you can come down from the mountain and spend the rest of your days thinking it was so beautiful there or you can create a vision, look upward, see the next mountain, and start the climb all over again.”

However, things don't always go smoothly, and Oprah admitted that it wasn't easy. “What was missing from OWN was me," she said of the networks growing pains. "It required my full-on energy. You know, this past year has been challenging, but it’s also been one of the greatest experiences for me getting to know me. What do you do when you don’t have the wind at your back?”

While Oprah claims she doesn't watch much TV, she has downloaded all three Fifty Shades of Grey novels. "Oh, I've got all the Shades, for the time I can take some guilty pleasure and just read. But I'm thinking, Stop with the story, get to the juicy part!" What else does she enjoy doing in her spare time? "Bathing is my hobby. I love creating bathing experiences—bath gels, bubbles, crystals, salts, lavender milks..." Ahh, the simple things.

So that's what the talk show queen's natural 'do looks like!

Oprah Winfrey's hair has been the subject of speculation for years, so the Harpo founder decided to silence the whispers by showing off her natural locks on the September cover of O magazine!

Embracing her hair "in its natural state," the 58-year-old media mogul revealed she almost chopped her tendrils off in favor of a shorter coif, but was advised against it by a famous friend!

"I wanted to wear it close-cropped a la Camille Cosby but her husband, Bill, convinced me otherwise. 'Don't do it,' he said. 'You've got the wrong head shape and you'll disappoint yourself.' I took his advice," she explained of her big styling decision.

The OWN head hauncho insists that a makeover can change everything!

"I even notice a change in my dogs when they get their summer cuts: they're friskier and livelier, feeling more themselves once the weight of the hair is released," she tells the mag.

We agree O!

Oprah Winfrey and 50 Cent End Six-Year Feud

Jun 14, 2012 12:00 PM

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!

X17 EXCLUSIVE - Oprah Winfrey Will NOT Conduct First Post-Divorce Interview With Demi Moore

Apr 23, 2012 11:05 AM

DMooreOld_011510_01_X17.JPGDespite reports that Oprah Winfrey scored the first post-divorce interview with Demi Moore, a source tells X17online exclusively that's NOT true.

On Friday several websites claimed the talk show legend was going to chat with the 49-year-old actress for the first time about rehab and her failed marriage to Ashton Kutcher, and this came on the heels of reports that Winfrey has been serving as a "life coach" for Moore.

Moore made her first public appearance last week at the launch of Lifetime's The Conversation with Amanda De Cadenet, and a few days before that she broke her three-month silence on Twitter.

Moore seems ready to move on with her life, but it also appears as though she's taking her time when it comes to stepping back into the spotlight.
