Oprah teases that she was completely surprised by Rihanna in her upcoming interview with the singer, airing a week from Sunday (August 19) on OWN.

Based on this preview, she probably won't be the only one.

Clothed, beautifully fresh-faced, always smiling and acting like just a regular girl from Barbados, Rihanna may be risking her risque image with this segment.

"I thought she would have been kind of a bad-ass kind of a rocker hard-edge woman ... nothing could have been farther from the truth," Oprah said.

Winfrey further delves into the complexities of the 24-year-old:

“She was thoughtful … she was very emotional … she was vulnerable. She pushes the edge. She pushes the edge a lot, and there’s a reason for that.”

In one clip, Rihanna admits she's "super-duper afraid of the pedestal that comes from fame," and confesses going through spells of intense loneliness.

Of course, her inner badass has hardly been forgotten.

At one point, Oprah tells Rihanna, “You seem to have a liking to the F-word," eliciting a laugh from the singer, at her family home in the Caribbean.

Should be fun to see a different side to this edgy performer.

Having just seen Oprah Winfrey's natural hair on the cover of O, we've now been treated to another photo of it, courtesy of her Twitter feed.

Oprah is also wearing no makeup in the pic, a rare sight.

"Me and all my 'girls' in the makeup trailer," the fresh-faced 58-year-old wrote while displaying seven of her wigs on the set of The Butler.

Here's Winfrey prepping to shoot her upcoming movie:

Oprah, No Makeup

The Butler will mark Oprah's return to the big screen for the first time as a character other than herself since 1998's landmark Beloved.

O will play Gloria Gaines in the film, based on a White House butler who served eight U.S. presidents over the course of three decades.

What do you think of Oprah's natural, no-makeup look?

Oprah Winfrey lets her natural hair down - and out - in the new issue of O, The Magazine, which shows her coiffure "in its natural state" for the first time.

Winfrey admits she almost went bald, or at least very close-cropped, but Bill Cosby talked her out of it. Smart move by Bill, as O's hair is still looking great.

Check our her natural hairstyle on the cover of O:

In The Makeover Issue, Winfrey also says the only beauty changes that really work are "those in which something inside the receiver clicks, aligning with that which is being received ... the only way to real transformation is through the mind."

Deep thoughts from the talk show queen.

Say what you will about Oprah's recent decline - interviewing ALLLLLL the Kardashians for ratings was a new low - but she puts her money where her mouth is.

The same definitely cannot be said for most of the 58-year-old's critics.

To that end, the talk show queen absolutely shut down a man on Twitter Sunday night who questioned her loyalty to black people, especially in the U.S.

In addition to cars for audience members, Oprah has given millions to charter schools in U.S. cities, helping hundreds achieve their college dreams.

With a Tweet to which there is no comeback, she informed this fool:

Say it ain't so... prah.

In light of her two-part interview with the Kardashians garnering big ratings for her struggling network, Oprah Winfrey has reportedly signed a release that will allow her to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

"She and Khloe especially hit it off. Khloe had her dying laughing," an insider tells Us Weekly of the sit-down Winfrey had with Khloe and Lamar Odom. "It meant so much because she loves Oprah!"

Now, just to be clear: the signing of a release does NOT mean Oprah will actually appear on the E! reality series. It could very well mean that she has given the network permission to re-air snippets of her interviews.

It does, however, mean that the talk show queen will go any length to save her network, just as pretending as if Kim Kardashian delivered a profound response when she said of her failed marriage:

"I've obviously made plenty of mistakes in my lifetime, but I'm not the type to sit and beat myself up over it. If a real lesson was learned, I'm so okay with having experienced that."

"That is so perfect I could weep," responded Winfrey.

So it's come down to this for Oprah Winfrey:

In a shallow, transparent attempt yet to save her dying network, the talk show queen has posted a message on her Facebook page that makes her upcoming interview with Kim Kardashian and kompany sound like the event of the century.

"I had the longest interviewing session I can ever recall, talking to ALLLLLLLL the Kardashians," Oprah wrote. "I had never met them, nor seen the show. I did a full on Kardashian Kram in preparation, watching major shows from every season.

"I genuinely wanted to know why they have become a cultural phenomenon? Why do so many people love to watch their every move and why do so many others love to hate them. Are they completely ego centered? Are they really "famous for being famous" or is there something more?"

Oprah and the Kardashians

And what did Winfrey discover? You'll need to tune in to OWN Sunday night to find out, of course, but she says she asked Kim about her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries and...

"Her answer leveled me."

What is your reaction to Oprah interviewing the Kardashians?

Well, this sucks. The Mayans were clearly right.

In the most obvious sign yet that the world will end some time this calendar year, television goddess Oprah Winfrey has lined up her next interview - and it's with every member of the Kardashian family.

Desperate to improve ratings for her floundering network, Oprah has recently sat down with Paris Jackson and 50 Cent, but at least the former is the child of an icon and the latter was shot a bunch of times.

Neither is famous for letting Ray J tap her large backside on video camera. For shame, O Dubs. For shame...

50 Cent sat down with Oprah Monday to clear the air after their ongoing feud, which somehow involved the rapper naming his dog after the talk show queen.

But was it a diss or an homage?

"Uou have a dog named Oprah ... that is not a compliment," she said. Fiddy replied, "I love you ... you know they say a dog is a man's best friend?"

During the confrontation, part of Oprah's new show, Next Chapter, on which Paris Jackson also appeared this week, 50 explained his beef with O.

Cent said Oprah's campaign against the N-word and degradation of women in hip hop felt like a personal attack against him at certain times.

"I would you discuss your feelings, and everything you said that was wrong with the culture was on my CD ... I was like, 'She doesn't like me.'"

So why name the dog Oprah?

"At the time, I was just looking at the situation and I saw I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn't even know me," he said.

Bygones are bygones, though, and 50 joked that he pampers the hell out of the animals ... even paying a babysitter to care for them if he's gone.

Yes, animals, plural. He also has a cat ... named Gayle.

In an exclusive interview airing Sunday, Paris Jackson confided to Oprah Winfrey that she's still coping with her famous father's loss but also dealing with grown-up problems like having a security detail and even bullying.

"I just like, remember something, and I smile," she said of her father.

The 14-year-old invited Oprah into her home and her life, and if you didn't know that her father was Michael Jackson, you'd swear she were like any other teenager who goes to school, hangs out with friends at the mall and deals with bullying.

"People have tried [to bully], but it doesn't always work," Paris told Oprah on OWN. "Both at school and some people try to cyber bully me."

"They try to get to me with words, but that doesn't really work."

Asked if she thought people picking on her were just jealous, Paris said: "Maybe, I don't know." Jackson says she mostly ignores it.

Since she took the stage at Michael's 2009 memorial service and shared her grief with the world, Paris has been in the public eye.

Because of paparazzi, celebrity gossip and the public's interest in her, Paris has security with her 24/7, which she calls "unfortunate."

Oprah Winfrey is OWNing up to her mistakes, if nothing else.

In a rare interview, Winfrey spoke with The Early Show on CBS about her problems with her network OWN, which has been plagued by poor results, internal upheaval, 30 layoffs (Rosie O'Donnell among them) and corporate restructuring.

Oprah admits that if she had to do it over again ...

"The idea of creating a network was something I wanted to do. Had I known it was this difficult, I might have done something else. I didn't think it was going to be easy, but if I knew then what I know now, I might have made different choices.

“If I were writing a book about it, I could call the book '101 Mistakes.'"

Winfrey compared launching the network when she did to “having the wedding when you know you're not ready" and that she was even warned about it.
