Jay-Z hit up the Oprah Winfrey Show today and almost everyone I know, including myself, rushed home to see it.? Oprah visisted Jay’s childhood home in the Marcy projects in New York and also followed him around as CEO of Rockafella. What I found most interesting about the show was Oprah & Jay-Z’s discussion about the use of the “N” word in rap songs. As we know, O is not real tolerant of rappers (ask Ludacris) but she allowed Jay-Z to have his say on the matter. In the end, they agreed to disagree with both making valid points on the subject.

Whitney Houston’s Oprah interview yesterday had everyone talking about her Bobby Brown revelations. In part two there’s much of the same, in addtion to her performance for Oprah’s studio audience. I still think she’s putting way to much emphasis on Bobby but this time she also discusses how it affected their daughter, Bobbi Kristina. She also reveals how her mother, Sissy Houston, intervened to save her life. Oprah really did her thing in this interview by allowing Whitney to discuss the hard decisions that she made to seek recovery from her addictions. Suffering from both an addiction to both her husband and a foreign substance, Whitney chose to run and never come back.

In case you missed it, here are a few clips of Whitney Houston’s Oprah interview, which aired today (September 14th). Whitney appeared in a secluded theatre and quietly confided in Oprah about her former drug use and her tumultuous relationship with singer Bobby Brown, ex-husband and father to Whitney’s only child, Bobbi Kristina.
Oprah’s sincerely allows Whitney to freely discuss her demons. She talks about her first meeting Bobby and expresses a ton of emotion during the discussion. She recalls how passionate their relationship was and how addicted she was to him, referring to Bobby as her “drug”. She spoke about the ?allure, the passion, the crazy love? during her early days with Brown and you could almost feel the intensity of her memories. Acknowledging that Bobby initially displayed a ?sweet, gentle tenderness,? she says that as her stardom exploded (sometime around the time of The Bodyguard), Brown’s insecurity and jealousy increased to hostility.
?He spit on me,? she said with quiet vehemence, as though reliving the degrading moment.
As for the well-known drug use, Houston tried to explain the combination of drugs she was taking during her worst times, and Oprah had her break it down. ?Follow me here, Oprah,? said Houston. She explained she was ?lacing marijuana? with rock cocaine.? ?I wasn?t getting high by myself,? she said. ?We were partners.?
All I know is… Whitney was “Whitney Houston” well before she and Bobby got together. She was always the bigger star so that part of her argument is a tad bit iffy. Everyone’s always blaming Bobby for Whitney’s downfall…and now she’s on Oprah pretty much blaming him too. I think she needs to own up for her own bad choices and move forward.

At the end yesterday’s episode of Oprah, the talk show host addressed two pressing questions from all of her Twitter People…aka “Tweeple.” First was “Am I tweeting myself or is my assistant writing for me?” and the second was “Am I wearing a weave? Everybody’s like, ‘Oprah, we love your weave.’
She clarified that she is in fact, in charge of her own twitter by stating, “I tweet myself, that’s why you haven’t seen that many tweets. I can’t tweet all day, okay?” Then addressed the weave question via twitter (above) and also on the air with “This is not a weave, this is my hair!”
I always say that a hit dog will hollar, but hey, she may be telling the truth. I just don’t understand what all the hoopla is about if she is.? Anywhoo, check out the photo she displayed on air of herself pre-makeup with her hair unstyled below: *Warning* It ain’t pretty!
