O Magazine interview

1 Jun, 2002

Rock gives his thoughts about why he walked away from The Chris Rock Show in an interview with O Magazine.

I really wanted to do movies, and it’s difficult to do movies on the side. Only if you’re Oprah can you say, I will shoot between July and September. And let me tell you—if I’m ever Oprah, I’m going to say, Can we shoot for one hour a day? It probably sounds crazy, but I may eventually go back to my show. I miss informing people and being an immediate part of the culture. I miss being able to do a whole piece on reparations. I miss the mix of having Adam Sandler on to sing some nasty song and then talking with Cornel West.
