My Two Cents: Oprah gets the Gas Face
Feel free to disagree, but I'm a little upset with Oprah Winfrey right now. Somehow someway I got the chance to see the April 14th episode of her show, which was dedicated to Country Music.
I repeat: OPRAH WINFREY DEDICATED AN ENTIRE EPISODE TO COUNTRY MUSIC.
Now I'm not gonna knock country music. I don't really listen to it but respect it as a genre and have friends who listen to it. But come the fuck on Oprah (c)Jamie Foxx. All the smack she talks about Hip Hop, despite it being the reigning King of American Culture, despite the thousands of viable topics it brings up, despite the Good and Real that it brings into the world, and she has the nerve to do a whole episode dedicated to country music?!?!
Now don't get me wrong. Any other day I'm a fan of Ms. Winfrey. She gets paid, she does good for the community, she brings awareness to important issues. But the way she attacks Hip Hop while promoting country music really disappoints me. My two cents.
