Oprah's guests get gushy

Oprah Winfrey is on the last lap of her talk-show host career, so obviously, as the Queen of Chat (Alan Partridge is the King), she couldn't make do with just one last show. Oh no, she's going on a last show tour. The first kicked off last night, with Tom Hanks, Madonna, Tom Cruise, Beyonce and Halle Berry in attendence.

According to Daily Mail, the stars lined up to gush about America's chat-show queen. Madonna said, 'It's no secret that millions of people are inspired by Oprah. I am one of those people ... She fights for things she believes in, even if it makes her unpopular ... I have learned so much from her.' While Dakota Fanning opined, 'We’re Oprah show babies. She's taught us we are enough… our lives have value.' Er, of course, love. Beyonce took the praise to new levels, stating, 'Oprah Winfrey, because of you, women have graduated to a new level of understanding… of who we can be. We can run the world!'

Actually, no, scrap that. Diane Sawyer won the prize for most sycophantic, telling the star (while talking about how a tree grows),'That is like life, that is like you. That is The Oprah Winfrey Show.' Oh. God.
