The woman who's seen and done it all says there's one thing she'll no longer do after hitting the big 6-0, and that's worry about her public perception.
"I'm turning 60, and - please don't take offense - I no longer have to be concerned about what anyone thinks of me!" O said, adding that there will be no more:
"Am I doing it right? Am I saying it right? Am I being what or who I'm 'supposed' to be? I'm turning 60, and I've earned the right to be just as I am," she said.
"I'm more secure in being myself than I've ever been."
In hindsight, Winfrey is amazed that she's been able to break so many barriers throughout her 30-plus-year career, as she should be. She is truly peerless.
