London, Sep 9 (Inditop.com) Media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who has interviewed several high profile political figures and celebrities during the past 20 years, is ecstatic about her no-holds-barred chat with comeback queen Whitney Houston and calls it as “the best interview I’ve ever done”.
Contactmusic.com reports that Houston is returning to the limelight with her first album in six years, after battling an alleged drug problem and divorce from Bobbie Brown. As part of her promotional duties in preparation for her new record, “I Turn To You”, Houston gave Winfrey the exclusive comeback interview for the new season of her hit talk show.
And it seems the session has been a tremendous success as Winfrey insists her talk with Houston is the most significant “connection” she’s ever had with a guest.
“I think it’s the best interview I’ve ever done. But I guess you’re supposed to let other people say that about yourself. I can’t think of a moment, ever, when I had a stronger connection to the person I was interviewing.
“My approach to this interview was to not be judgemental in any way, and not to go in trying to get her to say things to make a ‘moment’. I just wanted to be able to have an honest conversation with her. One woman to another woman. And the day of the interview I literally prayed about that all day long. I just wanted a connection between the two of us. And that is what happened,” she said.
The interview will be aired in the US Monday.
