Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry are teaming up again, and this time the two megastars are gracing the June cover of Essence magazine.
The cover displays the media moguls along with a headline that reads “Dream big!” while the issue features an interview with the stars as they talk about personal power, handling criticism, and their thoughts on mixing business with friendship.
“We both know how rare this is. Where else in the history of our African-American culture have two really, really successful people who can do whatever they want said, ‘Let’s come together and be even more powerful—let’s take it to the tenth power?’” Winfrey says in the cover piece.
Perry, who has directed a plethora of both big screen films and TV projects, is now heading over to launch two new shows on Winfrey’s network OWN.
The shows will premiere on consecutive nights, beginning with The Haves and the Have Nots, on Tuesday, May 28 at 9 p.m. ET and the sitcom Love Thy Neighbor on Wednesday, May 29 at 9 p.m. ET.
