Oprah Tells Tina Fey Maya Angelou's Advice About Turning 50

Oprah Winfrey is sharing with Tina Fey the advice she once received from the late poet Maya Angelou about getting older.

The 65-year-old executive was joined by the 49-year-old Modern Love actress at Oprah‘s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus Tour – presented by WW (Weight Watchers Reimagined – at Xcel Energy Center on Saturday (January 11) in St Paul, Minn.

“I feel like I am at an age where all the things I’ve ever thought I wanted to do, I did them,” Tina said. “I always wanted to work at Saturday Night Live, I always wanted to have a show, I always wanted to have children… And I did that. So I feel like I’m trying to be quiet, and take things in. And listen. I’m waiting for something inside me to tell me what the next thing is I want to do.”

“Wait for that,” Oprah advised her. “Don’t tell it. Let it tell you.”

Oprah added, “I’ll tell you, the only number that actually gave me pause was 60. But when I turned 50, my dear friend, Maya Angelou was still alive, and Maya said to me, ‘Babe, the fifties are everything you’ve been meaning to be. It’s everything you thought you might do. This is it. It’s coming in. You’re not even there yet.’”

Oprah Winfrey Leaves Russell Simmons Accuser Doc & Pulls From Apple TV+

Oprah Winfrey is stepping away from the Russell Simmons accuser documentary and canceling its plans to air on Apple TV+.

The 65-year-old executive is parting ways with the doc two weeks before it was slated to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

The documentary focused on a former music executive who has accused the 62-year-old entrepreneur and co-founder of Def Jam Recordings of sexual misconduct. The official Sundance description stated that the exec is Drew Dixon.

“I have decided that I will no longer be executive producer on The Untitled Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering documentary and it will not air on Apple TV+,” Oprah told THR. “First and foremost, I want it to be known that I unequivocally believe and support the women. Their stories deserve to be told and heard. In my opinion, there is more work to be done on the film to illuminate the full scope of what the victims endured, and it has become clear that the filmmakers and I are not aligned in that creative vision.”

Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering are talented filmmakers,” Oprah Winfrey added. “I have great respect for their mission but given the filmmakers’ desire to premiere the film at the Sundance Film Festival before I believe it is complete, I feel it’s best to step aside. I will be working with Time’s Up to support the victims and those impacted by abuse and sexual harassment.”

Beyonce Once Opened Up About Her Previous Heartbreaking Miscarriage

Beyonce may be celebrating being pregnant with twins, but unfortunately her road to a family wasn’t always easy.

Before having her daughter Blue Ivy, the 35-year-old entertainer suffered a miscarriage which she opens up about in her HBO documentary, Life is But a Dream.

In the documentary, Beyonce spoke extremely candidly about the pain and heartbreak she and husband Jay Z experienced after the miscarriage.

“Being pregnant was very much like falling in love,” Beyonce said. “You are so open. You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so of course you want to scream it out and tell everyone.”

After learning she suffered from a miscarriage, Beyonce said she wrote the “saddest song” she has ever written.

“And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through,” she said.

After the documentary was released, Beyonce sat down for an interview with Oprah where she explained that she went public with the miscarriage in order to help other couples who went through the same situation.

“I felt like there are so many couples that go through that and it was a big part of my story,” Beyonce said.
