Justin Bieber opened up about his love for (now ex) girlfriend Selena Gomez during a sit down interview that aired on the OWN Network last night.

But before getting excited about any grand declarations or Jelena reunions, there’s one thing to keep in mind: the interview was filmed about a month before the couple called it quits. Nevertheless, Justin’s comments about his one-time love couldn’t have been cuter.

“I am all about genuine people, and I feel like she’s just one of the most genuine people,” he told Oprah after being asked about Selena. “She just has a good heart. And I can talk to her about anything.”

While the couple broke things off earlier this month, the on-again and off-again lovebirds have been spotted together multiple times since. Whether this means the two are back together or strictly friends, it sounds like Justin could use the company either way.

“I really don’t have a lot of friends,” he told Oprah. “I have three close friends. You just feel sometimes that you need someone to be there with you. I get days where I’m just down and gloomy.”
