The Big O

As we pay homage to one of The Pink Ghetto's elders, Oprah Winfrey (who started this gangsta shit) as she celebrates 20 years of the Oprah Winfrey Show this week, check out this list of 20 reasons who Oprah is the bomb! She does it in print, television, new media, theater, movies, books, you name it, she excels at it. Oprah is the kind of journalist, media extravaganza I hope to be.

My favorite Oprah episode is one where she interviews Janet Jackson, after one of Michael's scandals. Oprah asks about Michael and how he's holding up. Janet says, "I don't want to talk about my brother." The audience cheers and Oprah backs down. Oprah then says, "Yeah, because people are always beating up on him." Janet then commences to say, "Yeah, because Michael is so misunderstood.." and spills the beans.

Lesson learned: you can get anybody to answer questions about anything with persistance. Cheers to the best interviewer in the game...brava!

Yeah Oprah could persuade me to tell my life story. She's so motherly and progressively intellectual at the same time that it seems like it would be so easy to open up to her.

I like Oprah, but I believe her interview skills are not what they use to be. She often times talks over her guests and inserts her own opinion on the guests. She needs to step back and let other people tallk. However, none of that diminshes her amazing success.

O seems borded these days. When she says, "I've done so many shows on this topic so I know... yadda yadda yadda." It's time to try something new. On the other hand everything she touches does not turn to gold. Can we say, "Beloved"

Still I give O her props!
