Oprah Tells Justin Bieber To Rethink Being Married By 25
In pop star Justin Bieber’s perfect world, he’d be married by age 25. Enter Oprah Winfrey, who told the Biebs he might want to rethink that one.
The Biebs sits down with Oprah this Sunday night on OWN, and in an exclusive clip posted on Entertainment Tonight, Bieber talks about his desire to be married by the time he’s 25.
The interview, conducted prior to Bieber split from Selena Gomez, has Oprah asking Bieber if his marriage dream is true. When Bieber says, “I think so, yeah,” Winfrey tells him, “Rethink that, will you? Bieber asks, “Why?” Winfrey replies, “I think 25′s too young, actually. I really do — and particularly for you.”
Winfrey goes on, explaining her position:
“Your whole 20s is about discovering who you really are, and you owe that to yourself, particularly because of the business that you’re in, there’s not a lot of self-discovery time because so much is already defined for you.”
“Well, we’ll see when we get there,” Bieber shrugs, also telling Winfrey that he wants “a handful” of kids. Winfrey jabs at him, “So, you were gonna get married at 25 but now you’re gonna rethink it because I’m telling you to?”
Bieber smiles, “Yeah, I mean, you are Oprah, you are telling me I should not get married at 25, I should probably listen to you.”
“You maybe should,” Winfrey agrees.
Winfrey’s interview with Bieber will air Sunday, November 25 at 9pm ET on OWN. Watch the clip here.
