October 25, 2012
Justin Bieber is joining Oprah Winfrey for an in-depth interview and a look behind the scenes of his Believe tour on an upcoming episode of Oprah's Next Chapter. Bieber's interview will air on November 25 on the OWN network, and it will include backstage footage from a recent Believe tour date at the All-State Arena in Rosemount, IL. On Wednesday (October 24), Bieber and Oprah sat down at Chicago's RL Restaurant for "one of the most in-depth interviews the singer has ever agreed to do," according to a press release from the show.
"Me and the Bieber just finished our interview," Winfrey wrote on Facebook afterward, sharing a picture of herself with the singer. "Good stuff!"
In other Bieber news, his YouTube channel passed 3 billion views on Wednesday, making him the first musician to hit that mark. Rihanna and Lady Gaga are the closest artists behind Bieber, but they both are trailing in the 2 billion range.
Lastly, Bieber may also be doing some writing and recording with boy band The Wanted for their third studio album. The Wanted and Bieber share a manager in Scooter Braun, and The Wanted will open for him on several dates of the Believe tour. Both artists also will share the stage at the upcoming Z100 Jingle Ball concert on December 7 at New York's Madison Square Garden.
"I know that Scooter mentioned we would do a bit of writing with Justin when we do a few dates with him," Wanted singer Nathan Sykes told MTV News recently. "We are just trying to write as much as possible and get the right feel of the album that everyone is happy with."
