The unthinkable has happened. For the first time yesterday, Oprah Winfrey and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson sat down together for a one-on-one conversation. Though the two moguls have had their differences in the past, specifically over Oprah’s views on Hip Hop, they apparently buried the hatchet when Oprah visited 50′s grandmother’s home in New York City.
Oprah apparently spent a couple of hours with him and after their interview, which will air this Sunday on an episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” she shared 5 things she learned about 50 during their time together.
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 peopleâ€”Curtis and 50 Centâ€”I was fascinated to hear his description of them both. Really glad I did it. Really liked him.
Looks like he won her over. 50 also took to Twitter to share his grandmother’s reaction to the conversation.
