Oprah Winfrey to Justin Bieber: 25 Is “Too Young” to Get Married
Oprah Winfrey may have just talked Justin Bieber out of his 7-year plan.
On last night’s episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, 18-year-old Biebs tells the talk show maven that he’d like to get married by the age of 25 — and Oprah has plenty to say about the subject.
“Rethink that, will you?” Oprah tells Bieber in an interview filmed before the teen pop phenom’s split with girlfriend Selena Gomez. “I think 25’s too young, actually. I really do — and particularly for you.”
“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,” she adds.
“Well, we’ll see when we get there,” Justin replies, also admitting that he’d like a handful of kids.
“So, you were gonna get married at 25 but now you’re gonna rethink it because I’m telling you to?” Oprah says, to which Justin replies, “Yeah, I mean, you are Oprah, you are telling me I should not married at 25, I should probably listen to you.”
