Lauryn Hill & Beyonce Say ‘Thanks, But No Thanks’ To Oprah

Lauryn Hill & Beyonce Say 'Thanks, But No Thanks' To Oprah

After her recent smash ratings hit, interviewing Rihanna for her Oprah’s Next Chapter program on OWN, you would think that Oprah Winfrey would be aggressive about getting other popular singers on her show like, say, Lauryn Hill and Beyonce.  And she is. If only they would agree to do it.

Oprah recently tweeted to her followers that she has in fact reached out to both Ms. Hill and Bey-Bey, but both turned her down.

She said that she is “TRYIiiing” to do an interview with Beyonce, but so far, no luck.

As for Lauryn Hill, Oprah tweeted that she “..tried. She said no.

In regards to Hill, I’m not surprised she would turn her down. She’s an intensely private person and when was the last time she ever did an interview for anyone? I can’t recall.

But wouldn’t it be great if she did an interview to talk about herself, and to clear up all the stories and rumors that have been out forever about her? Talk about a ratings smash.

As for Bey-Bey, what gives? She LIVES for publicity. She doesn’t get out of bed unless the paparazzi is within 10 feet of her.
