Female Rappers Ode To Oprah Be On OprahO to the P to the Rah! Rah! Rah!

Every time I try to write my rap, Ode to Oprah, I feel a panic attack coming on. Oprah and final season in the same sentence freaks me out.

It’s the way of the dreamer who dreams big dreams.

When I think I have enough information gathered and start to put my rap on paper, I realize how much I’m missing. Missing her already and afraid of missing important moments in her 25-year run. I’m going to give you a sample.

Please, please tell me your most intimate moments with O. What made you laugh or cry or both. I will include them in my final rap draft.

I just don’t think she truly has any idea how she has become a girlfriend to so many women.


O to the P to the Rah Rah Rah
I’m rapping a cheer for you
Oprah, awesome Oprah
Without you, what will we do
In our living room every day
For 25 years, showin’ us the way

And the one thing we all know for sure, is you laid it down Girl
Big Honest and pure
Turned us on to so many things
The kind of stuff that surely brings
Thought provoking growth for all
I so wish I was at the legends ball.

No more Oprah, holy shit
Don’t tell me this is really it
You know you are a Girlfriend to many
I’ve never been out for coffee without any
Discussion you weren’t involved in
From cleaning house to getting thin

With you we’ve cried and laughed so hard
Re-done our kitchens and cleaned up our yard
We learned about hoarding and waterboarding
Rescue pups and the perfect cups
You took us to Oz and around a strip pole
And I loved, absolutely loved you in every movie role

And what about that good ole boy Phil
It must be such an amazing thrill
To have Tom Cruise jump around your set like a crazy man
There’s no possible way I can
Tell you just how big of a fan

I am and so thankful too
Thank you Oprah for doing what you do
O to the P to the Rah Rah Rah
You’re a world class feminine hero
And even though we know
You have to go fulfill your destiny
We just prefer to have you on T.V.

Talkin’ to us everyday
So long Oprah
Wish you could stay

OK, I need to hear from all you Oprah lovers. Tell me your favorite O moment. This might be a very long rap song.

Keep on dreamin people!

Big Love,


Laurie has several amazing dreams going on in her life at this time. She left 8 Women Dream in November of 2010 to work on her Club B dream and her NIA business.

    I love the shows where she gives away her favorite things. Yeah, the people in the audience get cool stuff, but the amount of work she puts into preparing that, keeping it a secret and then having the show – she has pure joy on her face. That makes her real, kabillionaire or not, shes a woman human first, and her true essence is joy. I cant wait for the video – xo Rem

  • Wendy

    I’d like to see the rap on video.

  • Lonna

    You both are very funny. thanks I enjoyed it!

  • Laurie

    I hear ya, right after that show, this site came out with t shirts that had Cruises face on them and they said cru-sazy. Quite appropriate I thought. I could feel Oprahs discomfort through the screen. So many moments.
    Thanks Mariska

    For me it will always be Tom Cruise’s appearance in 2005 where he gushed to Oprah about Katie Holmes. “I’m in love! I’m in love! I can’t be cool. I can’t be laid-back,” he said. OMG OMG OMG I wanted to vomit. THEN, he jumped onto Oprah’s couch. And then onto the floor. And then back onto the couch. I thought he was going to jump on Oprah too!! He facial expressions were priceless and from this moment on I was convinced Tom Cruise is a wing nut. These are the moments I will miss the most – those times watching the show where you go, OMG that did not just happen!!

    Oprah would love you – and your rap. Breathe.

    What do I remember – this video in your post. It makes me smile every time I watch it. It’s one of my favorite Oprah moments.

    She isn’t going far – hell – she has her own network called OWN. I think she has much more in store for the world.

    Just do the rap and shine like you do.
