When she met Rihanna, there were tears and scandalous revelations, so when news reached us that Oprah Winfrey had bagged an interview with Justin Bieber for the latest installment of her Next Chapter series, we weren't expecting much more than teeny-bopper fun.
But today, a preview clip has emerged to prove us wrong we were. Brilliantly, Oprah takes the Biebs 'holiday shopping' in the wonderful world of Ralph Lauren. This results in some fascinating insights from the pop dreamboat. Here's an excerpt:
Oprah Winfrey: OK, so this is what I always think, that when you don’t know what to do, a good handbag is fantastic.
Justin Bieber: Always.
Oprah Winfrey: Also, where are the cashmere sweaters? I always think when you don’t know what to get somebody a nice cashmere Ralph Lauren polo sweater is always fantastic.
Justin Bieber: Always.
Oprah Winfrey: And I like having them in as many colours as possible. Red, pink - for the preppy side of you.
Justin Bieber: You know what? [picking out a purple sweater] This is the colour though.
Oprah Winfrey: That is. Don’t you love that colour?
Justin Bieber: Purple. That is definitely the colour. See she’s rocking purple too.
Oprah Winfrey: I’m rocking purple in honour of the Biebs.
Justin Bieber: In honour of me, so special. So special.
So there you have it kids, Justin's favourite colour is PURPLE. How convenient that Oprah is conviently kitting out in purple too. Turns out the sumptuous hue has long been a part of JB's signature look, as you can see from the gallery above. Do forgive us if this old news, Beliebers, we've never indulged in such extensive sartorial research for the Bieber - until now.
Justin also dishes on his on-off-on (?) girlfriend Selena Gomez. He says that although the couple go undercover to avoid the paps, he's conscious not to make his lady feel like a hanger-on when they're out and about. 'I never make her separate from me because I don’t want her to ever feel like I’m ashamed of her. Because I feel like a lot of guys do that. Especially in the business,' he says. 'They don’t want to be seen with a girl so they’ll make them ride in separate cars and do all that getaway stuff. If we get away, we get away together at least.'
N'aww, could he BE more perfect? Time for us to order that purple sweater...
