50 Cent and Oprah Winfrey sat down for their first TV interview ever yesterday night, where they finally cleared the air after years of feuding.
Chat show legend Oprah has made no secret of her dislike for rappers, in particular 50 Cent, but invited him onto Oprah's Next Chapter to sort out their differences. During the sit-down interview, 50 explained why he went against Oprah after hearing her views on hip-hop culture.
"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'," Fiddy told Oprah.
"I was saying, 'If I can't be your friend, at least let me be your enemy, so I co-exist.'"
Oprah replied: "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."
Fiddy explained why he continues to use the n-word: "When you're actually using it with malice in your heart, you can feel the difference... If it's being used by someone that you know isn't using it in a racial term, it doesn't impact the same... I just think you're identifying with how it originated and it should exist based on that (alone)."
Nice to see two huge African-American figures finally make the peace! Check out the full interview below...
