5 People We'd Like To See Oprah Interview ASAP

Didn't Oprah retire last year?! Well, apparently she's adopted the Jay-Z definition of "retirement."

Despite the fact that she no longer hosts her popular daytime talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, O is still routinely making headlines for conducting interviews on her weekly show, Oprah's Next Chapter, which runs on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Over the course of the last few months, she's interviewed 50 Cent, members of the Miami Heat, and, most recently, Rihanna, who opened up about the love that she still has for Chris Brown during an interview that aired on Sunday night. Oprah isn't stopping anytime soon, either. Just yesterday, we found out that she tried to book Lauryn Hill for an interview recently but that L-Boogie had turned her down.

We're all for Oprah continuing to land big interviews. And, in fact, there are some people that we'd definitely like to see her talk to sometime in the very near future. From rappers who aren't speaking to the press right now (anyone care to guess who that might be?) to singers who used to be involved with Rihanna (you're an idiot if you don't get this one), there are 5 People We'd Like To See Oprah Interview ASAP. We hope to see these folks on Oprah's Next Chapter sooner than later.

The Interview: Chris Brown
Why We Want To See It: There are two sides to every story. And, Chris Brown obviously has one. So, we'd like to see Oprah talk to Breezy now that she's had sat down and talked to Rihanna. Not only could she continue to push the conversation that she started on domestic violence when she talked to Rihanna, but she could also ask Chris his feelings on Rih-Rih. Plus, whenever Chris Brown sits down for a high-profile interview, something explosive happens (remember the bow tie and the incident at ABC?). So, O needs to make this happen. In fact, we'd be surprised if she hasn't already started trying.

The Interview: Kanye West
Why We Want To See It: 'Ye isn't doing any press right now, and we're not sure if he'll ever do press again. As he said on "Mercy," he gets plenty of press without actually doing it. But, we're pretty sure he'd at least consider it for Oprah. And, if she could convince him to sit down with her, we know she'd be able to get him to open up about all sorts of things, including the death of his mother, his relationship with Kim Kardashian, and his hatred of the media right now. Because he's done so little press recently, there would be a lot to cover.

The Interview: D'Angelo
Why We Want To See It: Guess who's back? D'Angelo. And, while he has come out and talked about where he's been for the last decade or so, he hasn't done it in front of a bunch of cameras. So, when it's time for him to do that, we hope Oprah has the sense to call his people to set up a sit-down. She could find out where he's been, why it's taken so long for him to come back to the game, and, most importantly, what he plans on doing with the rest of his life. His "next chapter" is just beginning. Let's hope O captures it.

The Interview: Mariah Carey
Why We Want To See It: Although she hasn't been completely off the radar since having her twins, she also hasn't opened up a whole lot about motherhood, her relationship with Nick Cannon, and her current life as a celebrity. Now that she's going to be a judge on American Idol and releasing a new album sometime soon, we assume she's going to be doing more press. But, we doubt anyone will give her the same forum that Oprah would. We'd want to hear about some of the gossip going on with her as well as the stuff that she's gone through in the last ten years. We're sure there's a lot of juicy stuff in there that Oprah could drag out of her.

The Interview: Rick Ross
Why We Want To See It: On the one hand, we want to see this simply for our own amusement. Rick Ross sitting down across from Oprah would be fun-knee! But, we also think that someone like Oprah, who has openly criticized rap music in the past, would really go in on Ross and ask him a lot of questions that he hasn't been asked in the past. From his time as a correctional officer to the message he sends in his music, there's a lot of things we'd like to see someone like Oprah ask a guy like Rick Ross. And, you know Ross isn't turning down the chance to appear next to Oprah. So, she needs to make this happen!

Cardi B Defends "Twerk" Video Against Conservative

Cardi B teamed up with the City Girls for their sexy "Twerk" video, in which the Miami and Bronx women twerked along the beautiful beaches with other buxom black and brown babes.

Some loved the videos, others not so much. One naysayer conservative Washington, D.C. video columnist took to Twitter to challenge Cardi b and other liberal women on how the provocative video will help during the #MeToo movement.

In the Era of #meToo how exactly does this empower women? Leftists, @iamcardib , feel free to chime in. THX .. pic.twitter.com/59fyDxrYAz

Cardi B saw the tweet and responded to Hamill directly telling the former Trump national diversity coalition advisor that what a woman wears has no bearing on how much respect she should be given.

"It says to women that I can wear and not wear whatever I want. do whatever I want and that NO still means," the "I Like It" rapper tweeted. "So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks."

It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. do w.e I want and that NO still means NO. So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested ? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks 🤔 https://t.co/8UBQQzO6jK

Cardi B has been making ground in the political arena after commenting on the U.S. partial shutdown. However, since then the "Bodak Yellow" artist admits she's received negativity ever since. She insists she's not trying to change anyone's political preferrance.

All these conservatives been harassing me and telling me the most disgusting things these past few days.Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is fuckin up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we ALL suffer as citizens.

Woman Denies Chris Brown's Involvement In Reported Rape

A woman has come forward to clear Chris Brown's name after he was reportedly detained in Paris on a rape accusation.

On Monday (Jan. 21) a woman by name of Kim Ford shared several messages on her Instagram story, denying claims that Brown and his security guard abused an unidentified woman. Ford says "nothing happened" but she was hit by a man who wasn't the "Undecided" singer. Ford also denies being the one who accused the artist of sexual assault.

"I am not the person who said Chris Brown raped them," she said. "I was there but nothing happened and the man who hit me had no relation to Chris Brown."

Earlier reports claimed an unidentified woman alleges that she met Brown at a Parisian night club in rue de Ponthieu, near the Champs-Elysées, on the night of Jan. 15 into Jan. 16, before heading back to his room at the La Mandarin Oriental.

Brown was recently spotted taking in the festivities of Paris Fashion Week, and smooching rumored flame, Ammika Harris. The “Undecided” singer shared video from dance rehearsal in the French city over the weekend.

VIBE has reached to Ford about her comments.

He has not commented on the reported rape allegation.

See Ford's claims below.
