Oprah Winfrey Shocks Ellen!

The 36 year old hip hop rapper, 50 cent has put his differences aside and reconciled with the once day time Queen, Oprah Winfrey, during a candid TV interview. This effectively puts an end to their 6 year old feud Sunday night as part of Winfrey’s “Next Chapter”.

As Oprah stepped inside Cent’s grandparents home where he was raised after her mother was shot dead when he was only eight, the one time biggest foes hugged each other and sat down to sort things out.

The rapper revealed that he chose to become Winfrey’s enemy when see repeatedly criticized the type of rap music he used to play. "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.' I was saying, 'If I can't be your friend, at least let me be your enemy, so I co-exist, '" he told Winfrey.

Winfrey said that while she doesn’t spend much time looking at people who dislike her, she did find it offending when he publically criticized her audience saying that 'Oprah's audience is my audience's parents so I could care less about Oprah or her show.'

Winfrey also confronted Cent about him naming his dog after her. That was not a compliment," and adding, "I heard you had a bitch named Oprah!" 50 Cent said, "At the time, I was just looking at the situation and I saw I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn't even know me -- and I gave it to the dog.” Cent told her that now things are different because he respects her and has no bad feelings about her. “I love you”, he said sheepishly telling her that he also has a cat named Gayle, after Winfrey’s best friend, Gayle King.

“This is a huge milestone for me. Just being in your presence and on the show, that's a huge accomplishment,” Cent said.

During the show, Cent told Winfrey about his troubled childhood and his dream to feed 1 billion people. He showed her around his grandmother’s home and told Winfrey that he has to be two people at the same time, his rap persona and Curtis Jackson. He said that when he’s with his grandmother he’s even prohibited from cursing people.

Cent owns a 53 room mansion in Connecticut but says he feels most comfortable at his grandparent’s home.
