Madonna Photo From Oprah Finale

Madonna was in Chicago today for Oprah's Finale taping.

Live from Chicago: It's Oprah's big surprise

7:37 p.m. Hanks and Oprah are back on stage. And here's Madonna! "So, you look surprised," says Madonna. "Yeah!" says Oprah.

"It's no secret millions of people are inspired by Oprah," says Madonna. "I am one of those people. She's a self made woman who has been at the top of her game for 25 years and she is still kicking a--, encouraging people to dream big, work hard, to read a book, get an education, ask questions - no matter who you are or where you come from. She fights for things she believes in, even if it makes her unpopular. She has balls and a wealth of compassion. I've learned so much from her."

Madonna says Oprah has inspired her to continue her work at her school in Malawi, despite the setbacks.

"I hope to have that same thrill in the years to come, to see that I, too, have made a difference. Oprah, may the next chapters be even better. I stand before you on behalf of the many you have helped and vow to be more courageous and never give up. Never. ... Thank you for inspiring me."

Madonna adds, "After 25 years what will Oprah's shows legacy be? Just look at this audience." The audience is now holding up cards and videos are being shown on it, featuring videos of people in countries around the world holding the letter O and mentioning how the show has changed them.

  5. so nice to see Madonna celebrating Oprah. Everybody loves Oprah! :)

  6. Quote:

    "I don't wanna go to Chicago."
    "Because Oprah lives there..."

    I think it was something like that... Anyone who remembers this as well?

  7. @Jaap: She said in "Truth Or Dare" that Oprah would be her only reason to live in Chicago! :)

  8. Oh please I would hate someone to hold me to what I said 20 years ago! She looks very Shanghai Surprise! Fun!

  9. can't wait to see it! I love Oprah!! =))

  10. No in Truth or Dare she said "It's a conservative town and that's another reason why not to live in Chicago. That and Oprah Winfrey lives there."

    But that was over 20 years ago. I guess she changed her mind. I still don't like her though lol

  11. Stunning,and I see Shanghai Surprise in there me too!

  12. How anyone can't like a woman who does nothing but good for other people less fortunate then themselves is beyond me.

    Oprah is an amazing person.

  13. I love what Oprah does. I just don't like her lol I wish her the best though.

    Madonna is an amazing person.

  14. Tony,not everyone agrees.geeez ! Have more tolerance for others people opinion.

  15. Opinion on what? Oprah doesn't help others??


    I am not saying you have to like HER, I am saying what she does for others is something to be commended, not put down.

  16. Madonna is wearing Miu Miu! Lovely!
