Oprah Winfrey Compares Justin Bieber Interview to Her Famous Chat With Michael Jackson
In a preview for this Sunday’s (Nov. 25) ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ interview with Justin Bieber, Oprah Winfrey says not since her 1993 interview with the late, great Michael Jackson has she done an interview like this. Wow. That’s a big statement and some big company for the Biebs to be in. She compared him to Elvis Presley and the Beatles, in that he has millions of screaming fans all over the globe, but said that he is different. And why is that?
Because he has the social media sphere at his disposable.
“There’s never been a star like you,” Winfrey declared, to which Bieber asks what she meant. She pointed out that he is in the company of tremendous legends who have changed the face of music for culture, but they did not have a rise to stardom like he did, via social media. There has never been a social media star until Justin Bieber.
She indicates that her interview is about how he manages his fame, and how he handles being in the public eye and a celeb since he was 12-years-old. She poses an important question: How do you figure out who you are in the midst of all of that?
Guess we’ll find out on Sunday (Nov. 25), when the special airs.
