Oprah Winfrey may have interviewed Rihanna, the Kardashian family, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and Paris Jackson for her network, but the 58-year-old media proprietor is reportedly having trouble securing interviews with Beyonce Knowles-Carter and Lauryn Hill. However, Winfrey may be considering a sit-down with Evelyn Lozada.

Winfrey spoke with fans on Twitter who suggested various names that she should interview next, with singers Knowles-Carter and Hill being among the favorites on the social networking website. One fan asked Winfrey, "(W)hen is the Beyonce interview?"
"TRYinnng (sic)!" Winfrey responded on the social networking website.
While Winfrey let it be known that she was attempting to secure an interview with Knowles-Carter, 30-year-old new mother and recording artist, the interviewer admitted that she was turned down by Hill.
After Winfrey's interview with Rihanna on "Oprah's Next Chapter," the media mogul was asked to secure an interview with Hill on the show.
"Get Lauryn Hill on your show ASAP!" the person tweeted.
Winfrey responded to the fan, admitting that she had tried to do just that.
"Tried," Winfrey responded. "She said no."
However, days after Winfrey's interview with Rihanna, rumors began buzzing on Twitter about "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada giving the media mogul an exclusive. On Aug. 11, 36-year-old Lozada was the victim of estranged husband Chad Johnson allegedly head-butting her after an argument about infidelity.
Kevin Frazier, co-host of "The Insider" entertainment news program on the "Tom Joyner Morning Show" disclosed the information on Tuesday, causing many to react to Winfrey's possible future interview with Lozada, who has reportedly canceled all media appearances since her domestic dispute.
"If U give Evelyn Lozada an interview & a platform to catapult her talentlessness (sic) further don't call me anymore," one person tweeted Winfrey.
However, others seemed interested in the possibility of hearing Lozada's story told to Winfrey for the first time.
"@Oprah is going to interview @evelynlozada," another person tweeted. "I will be tuning in to this one. @OWNTV's GETTIN' IT!"
Winfrey had yet to confirm an interview with Lozada by press time.
