Two of the biggest name in media, Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey, are the cover stars of ‘ESSENCE‘ magazine’s June issue. The power friends talk about their friendship and being in business together with bringing new two new shows that will air on Winfrey’s OWN.
Tyler on making their partnership work: “The most important thing about coming together was making sure we would not lose our friendship because of the business. We had to establish ground rules. The main one: Both of us have to continue to live in our truth. If she doesn’t like something, say it. If I don’t like something, I’ll say it. And we’ll figure it out and keep moving on…”
Oprah on how important their partnership is: “We both know how rare this is. Where else in the history of our African-American culture have two really, really successful people who can do whatever they want said, ‘Let’s come together and be even more powerful – let’s take it to the tenth power?”
The issue hits newsstands on May 10.
