Tyler Perry stopped by the studio this weekend to film promos with Oprah promoting his exciting new partnership with OWN. Tyler will be writing, directing and producing programs The Haves and Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor, which are both coming to the network this May. Hit comedy For Better or Worse debuts this fall on OWN.
In the meantime, Oprah and Tyler are busting some impressive moves. Oprah posted a photo of the two on her Twitter feed.
Evidently, fitting in a little boogie time is a perfect way to celebrate "Super Soul Sunday."

Essence magazine honored Oprah with the Power Award at the 6th Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon Thursday. On the red carpet, Oprah told Essence what she believes is true power: "[T]he thing about power for me is that it's connected to a source that's obviously greater than myself. Any time you can connect to the source and understand that that's where all of your energy, your creativity, your joy and your triumph come from, I consider that to be authentic power."

Tuning in to the Grammys this weekend? Check out top moments some of this year's nominees and performers have shared with Oprah.
With six nominations, Jay-Z is among those leading the pack this year. He's a formidable force in the music world, but we can't help but gush over the adorable moments he had with Oprah. Whether it was teaching Oprah to rap or touring his old neighborhood, Jay-Z revealed a softer side that we love!
Grammy nominees and multiplatinum recording artists Carrie Underwood, Rihanna and Usher all sat down with Oprah to discuss family, their careers and more last year on Oprah's Next Chapter. Carrie and her husband, Mike Fisher, had their first TV interview together with Oprah. Rihanna poured out her honest feelings toward another 2013 Grammy nominee Chris Brown. And, Usher gave his first—and what he says is his last—interview about his divorce and custody battle.
We can't wait to see Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift perform at this year's awards. Oprah noticed Alicia's standout star power early on in her career, but by the time she sat down with the young diva for a 2004 O magazine interview she'd already collected five Grammys. And, we remember when young starlet Taylor Swift first released her Grammy Album of the Year, Fearless. Now, she seems like a veteran in the music industry.
Oprah switches roles as an interviewee this month for Dr. Maya Angelou's third annual Black History Month radio program, "Telling Our Stories." During an intimate conversation with Maya Angelou, Oprah discusses her road to chairman and CEO of The Oprah Winfrey Network and her upcoming role in the Lee Daniels film The Butler.
The special airs in February on more than 175 public radio stations nationwide. Maya Angelou also speaks with Grammy Award-winning singers Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson, former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan, and Golden Globe-winning actress and playwright Regina Taylor.
In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Maya Angelou said she wanted to do the series on black history "a way that you get it and don't even know you got it."
