Oprah's got some advice for Justin Bieber: don't get married in your 20s.
In an interview with Bieber, airing Nov. 25 on "Oprah's Next Chapter," Oprah asks if the megastar really intends to be married by 25. When the 18-year-old reveals that he does, Oprah offers some words of wisdom.
"I think 25's too young, actually. I really do -- and particularly for you," Oprah says. "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 [where there's] not a lot of self-discovery time because so much is already defined for you."
"You are Oprah and you're telling me to not get married when I'm 25, so I should probably listen to you," Bieber responds.
