Justin Bieber’s interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on OWN on Sunday night, and during the intimate sit-down Bieber opened up about his off-again, on-again girlfriend Selena Gomez as well as being lonely.
Fuse reports that before Bieber comes out, Winfrey compares him to Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and the Beatles.
Of his massive fame, which he achieved from a YouTube video some years back, Bieber noted the downsides of it.
“I really don’t have a lot of friends,” he admitted, ABC News reports. “I have three close friends.”
He also said he feels lonely a lot, saying, “You just feel sometimes that you need someone to be there with you. I get days where I’m just down and gloomy.”
At the time of the interview, which was October, Bieber was with Gomez and he gushed about his girlfriend. “I am all about genuine people, and I feel like she’s just one of the most genuine people,” he said. “She just has a good heart. And I can talk to her about anything.”
“I never make her separate from me because I don’t ever want her to feel like I’m ashamed with her,” he continued. “If we getaway, we’re getting away together, at least.”
