Justin Bieber, the 19-year-old Canadian crooner, recently opened up about his feeling on marriage, as well as revealing that he would like to remain friends with his ex-girlfriend.
"My grandparents Bruce and Diane Dale [are my relationship role models," he told Us Weekly recently. "They love each other so much, after so many years! When I'm their age, I want to be as in love with my wife as my grandfather is with his."
Oprah Winfrey, the 59-year-old media maven, warned Bieber against trying to be tied into a marriage while he was too young. Winfrey inquired about Bieber's desire to get married at 25 years old on her show "Oprah's Next Chapter."
"I think so, yea," Bieber responded to the inquiry last year.
When the media proprietor asked the young singer to rethink his stance on marriage before 30, he asked her "why?"
"I think 25′s too young, actually," Winfrey told Bieber. "I really do – and particularly for you."
Winfrey went on to describe her stance.
"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," Winfrey told Bieber last year. "There's not a lot of self-discovery time because so much is already defined for you."
The singer told Winfrey about wanting a "handful" of kids, but she didn't let up during the interview.
"So, you were gonna get married at 25 but now you're gonna rethink it because I'm telling you to," she questioned the young entertainer.
Bieber smiled at Winfrey and seemed to consider her advice.
"Yeah, I mean, you are Oprah, you are telling me I should not get married at 25, I should probably listen to you," he told her.
Bieber broke up with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, but insisted that he could still be friends with previous girlfriends.
"As long as people are kind to each other during a breakup, there is no reason they can't be friends," the singer told Us Weekly. "A lot of people give me relationship advice."
