Jamie Foxx does ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ Sunday

    Oscar winner Jamie Foxx will be appearing on "Oprah’s Next Chapter" this Sunday in a special that Oprah herself is calling their "best conversation ever!"

    "Hysterical. Shocking. Deep." Those were some other choice words the OWN creator used to describe her one-on-one with Jamie, during which she grilled the multi-talented artist on his love/sex life as well as the darker side of fame.

    The special comes on the heels of a firestorm of controversy surrounding the singer, who earlier today spoke with "The Today Show" reporter Samantha Guthrie about a joke he made on "Saturday Night Live." The Django Unchained star joked about killing "all the White people" in the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film and referred to it as "great."

    Jamie responded to the criticism saying, "I’m a comedian. So, I mean, I’m not a — I don’t even know what to say.”

    Jamie also caused a stir last month when he called Barack Obama "our Lord and savior" during a monologue at the Soul Train Awards, causing a stir among Christian websites.

    Jamie, whose successful standup career has often utilized race as a significant source of jokes, has never publicly been accused of racism.

    Though there was no mention of any of his recent controversies on the "Oprah’s Next Chapter" sneak peek, one thing that is certain is that the audience will learn things about the megastar that they never knew before.

    "Oprah’s Next Chapter" featuring Jamie Foxx will be appearing at 9 p.m. EST on OWN.
