Oprah Winfrey Says Running for President Would 'Kill Her'
Fans cannot let go of their hope that one day soon, Oprah Winfrey will announce she is running for president.
Speculation went into overdrive after she gave a stirring speech predicting “a new day is on the horizon” while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globe Awards in January.
But the lifestyle maven yet again rained on their parade, telling British Vogue that it will never happen.
"In that political structure -- all the non-truths, the bullsh*t, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on -- I feel like I could not exist," Winfrey told British Vogue in a cover interview for the magazine’s August issue. "I would not be able to do it. It's not a clean business. It would kill me."
Winfrey also took the opportunity to share her hopes for a brighter future ahead, thanks to the #MeToo Movement.
"People talk about 'these are such dark times', but what if we shift the paradigm? Because I see it differently," she told British Vogue. "I see, 'Isn't this remarkable that we're waking up?' For years, women have endured craziness. This is what's happening to people. They're allowing themselves to not just become corroded, but to become hysterical. You've got to lean to the happiness."
Winfrey also discussed her flash of insecurity before attending Meghan Markle’s May 19thnuptials to Prince Harry.
She realized the Stella McCartney dress she’d ordered looked white in pictures. (It was cream). “I Googled, ‘Can you wear white to a wedding? Answer: ‘No, don’t risk it,'” the 64-year-old media mogul told the magazine. McCartney then worked “round the clock” to remake the dress so it would be the more socially acceptable pink.
The full interview will appear in British Vogue’s print edition, which hits stands July 6th.
