Favorite Things for Summer
First, Oprah had to find the perfect beach bag to hold the best summer gear. "I found this one from Lands' End," she says. "I thought this was great because it has a little thing for your keys and it has a compartment for your magazines. ... It comes in a zillion colors, but green is my favorite."
The Large Zip Top Tote is available at LandsEnd.com in a variety of sizes and colors.
Oprah calls Robin to see if he would be willing to perform some of the tracks from his album The Evolution of Robin Thicke. "You know which is a good one, which is a real audience pleaser, is 'Teach You a Lesson,'" Robin says.
"I don't know," Oprah says. "Maybe too naughty for our audience."
In the end, Oprah and Robin agree on two showstoppers, including Oprah's favorite song.
Robin—who was recently featured as one of People magazine's 100 most beautiful people with his wife, actress Paula Patton—says "Would That Make U Love Me" poses a universal question. "In that song I was talking about all of us and even the wars going on, and how much do people have to change to make somebody love them?" Robin says. "Why can't we just be loved the way we are?"
To make sure Robin's sultry sounds will be playing at parties all summer, everyone in the audience gets a copy of The Evolution of Robin Thicke!

Watch Robin Thicke sing "Complicated."
Robin says the song is about him. So what makes him complicated? "You know when you're in a relationship and you keep focusing on the negative things? Maybe the past or the problems and you can't push forward, you can't make anew?" Robin says. "So I was going through that with my lady where I kept focusing on the past and the negative things."
"But writing that song, I'm sure, helped you straighten things out," Oprah says.
"Yeah. In fact, she was the first one to hear it," Robin says.

Although she's half a world away, Beyoncé sends a special message from Frankfurt, Germany, where she's kicking off her European tour. "I have to talk for a second about you, Robin. Your voice is like silk. It's very sexy," she says. "And you can do anything. You are an inspiration for me. You are a wonderful songwriter. I think you are such an incredible artist. I'm so happy that you're going to be on my tour."
Beyoncé has a special gift for everyone in the studio audience—two VIP tickets to The Beyoncé Experience with Robin Thicke! Tickets for U.S. tour dates are currently on sale.

Watch Oprah help her audience find the perfect sunglasses.
One of the first things these women learned is that they need to stop wearing the same pair of sunglasses for years on end. Marchon's Robert Schienberg says it's important to mix up your look, just like you do with other accessories. "You should have a wardrobe of them. Sunglasses are like shoes for your different moods ... for different moments in your life," he says.
If you're not sure about a perfect rectangle, look for sunglasses with modifications to the shape, such as aviator glasses. But whether you're looking for a rectangle or a modified rectangle, be sure to pick a pair with the right shape for your face's proportions.

When India returned to the United States, she says she was so inspired by the young girls at the academy that she decided to write a song for them.
"I saw them and I saw myself in them. I wanted to sing a song to them that I wish somebody would have told me [when I was that age]—that there is nothing wrong with you," she says. "It doesn't matter what you're shaped like or what color your skin is or none of that. There's nothing you can't do. ... You're brilliant."
India even let Oprah's girls choose the name of the song—"Beautiful Flower." Now, India's here to perform the song publicly for the very first time.
In the song, India sings: There's hope. It doesn't cost a thing to smile. You don't have to pay to laugh. You better thank God for that.
"India.Arie is known for writing and performing music that really stimulates and revives the soul," Oprah says.
