Turns out most people don't really want Oprah to run, poll says

Winfrey's electrifying words were applauded the world over (with many even calling for her to be the next president) but Seal slammed the talk show host, labelling her a hypocrite for knowing about Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct over the years. The stirring address prompted speculation she might run for president in 2020.

"Don't try and use me as a pawn against Oprah and in any of your political games", Seal said in the video posted late Thursday night.

So...what is Chrissy talking about when she writes that, "we've all heard things about each other"?

A known feminist, Winfrey prides herself in her career which she built herself (without the help of a rich and famous husband or a juicy scandal that launched her into stardom) and has been an advocate for women and their progression.

Singer Seal has lashed out at media mogul Oprah Winfrey following her inspirational Golden Globes speech, claiming she knew about the rumours surrounding Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein but did nothing.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Steven Spielberg says he's all for Winfrey possibly coming for the White House.


"I'd never seen a black man being celebrated like that". Recy died 10 days ago, before her 98th birthday. Oprah, even for all her flaws, is quite possibly one of the most powerful women in the industry. "Their time is up".

The subtleties of the cameraman to capture the littlest of moments were phenomenal. What advice would you give her?

She and many other powerful women made a decision to show up to the Golden Globes wearing black to support an initiative called "Time's up". "The victims of the sexual harassment that disturbed them so much!" he says. Meryl Streep and Reese Witherspoon have each donated $500,000 to this initiative.

And in a 1999 interview with Larry King, he said she would be "always be my first choice" for a running mate.

She said: "I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!"

When asked by The Guardian newspaper if he believed Oprah had the qualifications necessary to become president, Steven said: "Does our current president?".
