Meeting Oprah Winfrey is a big moment, even for celebrities themselves. South African comedian and The Daily Show host, Trevor Noah had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet one of the most famous people on the planet.
Oprah did the interview with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show as part of her current book tour. She’s promoting the release of her new book, The Path Made Clear.
Apart from discussing her new book, the mega-star also joked about her avocado orchard, because she believes buying avocados is too expensive. Oprah also discussed more serious issues like mental health and an Apple TV+ she’s launching with the UK’s Prince Harry to remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
Oprah goes on to address the serious “hateration” she’s received for doing Oprah Winfrey Presents: After Neverland in which she interviews Michael Jackson accusers after HBO released a controversial documentary called Leaving Neverland. Oprah explains that she has received a lot of hate for the special
I haven’t had that much hateration since I did the puppy episode with Ellen [DeGeneres, the episode in which DeGeneres came out as gay].
But when I saw that documentary, I realized that a lot of people are going to be triggered by watching it, and a lot of people will not understand what the pattern is.
People call it molestation, but there is a big seducing that goes on … and that was important enough for me to take the hateration for.
Oprah answered a question from the audience at The Daily Show, where she revealed that she might open one of her Leadership Academy for Girls in the USA, and is deciding on a location already. The mogul has a Leadership Academy for Girls in the small South African town Henley on Klip, just outside of Johannesburg.
