Justin Bieber has spoken of the downsides of his international fame, telling Oprah Winfrey on her Next Chapter programme that he only has three close friends. The 19-year-old Canadian star - who has reportedly split from his girlfriend Selena Gomez - says he is only human and can still feel alone at times.

Bieber explained, "I really don't have a lot of friends. I have three close friends that I'll fly out to see me or that I'll iChat with or call. I get days where I'm just down and gloomy." Though he's split from Selena, Bieber might be back into the dating game pretty soon, given that he wants to get married before he's 25. "Rethink that will you?" said Oprah, attempting to convince him that he was too young to tie the knot, "I should probably listen to you," replied Justin. Despite their parting of ways, Bieber and Gomez have reunited multiple times over the past couple of days, most recently at an eatery in Encino, California, on November 19, 2012. A source told US Weekly magazine, "Justin reached out first and hasn't stopped reaching out. Their main problem is Justin has a wandering eye."

Oprah's interview with Bieber will air on the OWN network on November 25, 2012.
