On this week's episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter," the big O and 50 Cent finally squashed their beef. In the candid one-on-one interview, they discussed 50's tough childhood and his pledge to feed 1 billion people through the sales of his Street King energy drink.
Oprah has continuously denounced the view of women in hip-hop culture and the use of the N-word, which at one point instigated a beef between the talk show titan and the rapper. During the interview, 50 explained that he saw O’s stance as an attack on him personally. "I would see moments where you would discuss your feelings on the culture, and everything that was wrong with the culture was on my CD," 50 said. "And I was like, 'She doesn't like me.'"
At the time, 50 responded to Oprah’s stance by saying she caters to middle-aged white women and doesn't understand hip-hop culture. He even went as far as to name his pet dog after the talk show host, which Oprah confronted him about during the interview. "I heard you had a bitch named Oprah, that's what I heard," Winfrey said.
But the sit-down revealed a different side of the MC, which took Oprah aback. 50 Cent talked about the difference between his rap persona and Curtis Jackson. "I've always had to be two people," he said. "I've had to be my grandmother's baby in the house and be more like what people perceive 50 Cent as outside. I'm not even allowed to curse around her."
Ultimately, that and 50's commitment to charity were enough for the two to work past their former feud.
But this isn’t the only settled beef Oprah’s had on her hands. Over the years, she's compiled an impressive list of celebrity feuds turned friendships.
