Oprah Winfrey, our spirit guide, inspiration and benevolent queen who loves to give away things like trips to Disney World and CAAAAAARS, turns 61 today. The talk show host turned media mogul continues to churn out amazing programming, giving us some of the best moments in broadcast history. Plus, she seems like a really down-to-earth lady — for a billionaire.
For the woman who makes grown men cry (or maniacally jump on couches), there is no better time than her birthday to show her some love. Below, 10 reasons why Oprah Winfrey is just the best ever.
She is one of the most generous ladies around. Look how excited she is gifting her studio audience.
But don’t take her kindness for weakness because she will set you straight in a minute.
Just ask Lindsay Lohan.
But even when she scolds you, you take it in stride because she’s Oprah and she’s probably right.
She knows how to make an entrance.
Plus, she has the best freak-out face ever.
She knows when to get to the heart of the matter.
And has the power to reduce even the coldest heart to tears.
You know she can turn it up when necessary.
And when she unwinds, she does it in the most baller fashion possible.
Praise this queen.
