Oprah & 50 Cent's Interview Was Epic: The 5 Things She Learned From Him [VIDEO]
The two squashed previous tension with chatter about love, hip-hop, fatherhood & life
50 Cent can officially say that he came, saw and conquered. It has been said of celebrities that they have officially arrived when they land that Oprah interview and, despite OWN’s struggles as a network, the talk show host's interviews still hold weight, so I still believe the mantra is true.
My previous post consisted of a list of reasons as to why viewers should tune in and every single thing on it happened!
So, if you missed last night’s “Next Chapter" (which featured Paris Jackson too), then you missed a good episode. Their conversation covered a range of topics from his love life to why he actually named his dog Oprah. (He also has a cat named Gayle).
50 Cent has always been cheeky, so I’m not surprised he’d name his dog Oprah due to his frustration with her. I guess that was his way of saying, “One day, I’ll own you" (no pun intended), but I’m glad they seemed to have gotten over it.
(On a side note, I actually met Oprah (the dog). I went to G-Unit records a couple of years ago for an interview with Lloyd Banks and the pup was there. You don’t understand how spoiled she is. She spent time with a trainer so that her manners and obedience could be developed and the G-Unit office in general is very friendly towards her. When 50 Cent can’t have her, his employees take care of her (if not, they'd probably get fired). There’s top-notch dog food available, a bed and toys.)

In related news, Oprah listed 5 things she learned from 50 Cent. Check them out (via OWN):
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.
