Oprah On Jay-Z: 'I Love Him'

 Yesterday (August 9) Oprah Winfrey received a first-class tour of Brooklyn courtesy of a new friend in fellow mogul Jay-Z. The pair visited several areas of Brooklyn, including Jay’s Marcy Project neighborhood, located in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The entire conversation/interview is expected to be showcased in an upcoming issue of Oprah’s O! Magazine.

Despite being previously criticized by 50 Cent and Ludacris for her views on Hip-Hop, Oprah had nothing but praise for Jay-Z following their 2 hour meeting.

Gayle King and Oprah admitted they argued over who loved Jay-Z more.

“I have some disagreements with the music. But I love him,” Oprah explained in a phone interview with friend Gayle King. “He was so charming and delightful and he smelled so good. It’s that kinda thing where you hug a guy and his scent is buried in him.”

A smitten joke aside, Oprah went on to place Jay-Z’s intellect alongside his music abilities, and is hopeful they will remain in contact.

“Everyone says how smart he is. He’s really gifted and talented,” she stated. “At the end of the day, I felt that I made a friend.”

Jay-Z’s much-anticipated Blueprint 3 album is set to be released on September 11.

There is speculation that Jay will make a follow-up in-studio appearance to further promote the album.

At press time, the print date for the Oprah/Jay-Z meeting has not been announced by O! Magazine.
