This afternoon, Oprah Winfrey interviewed Justin Bieber at the restaurant in one of her favorite stores, Ralph Lauren. Justin, who is playing tonight at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont at 7:PM warmed up with Oprah with his new smash hit, Believe. In this photo, it looks like Oprah isn't paying attention to Justin's serenade, but rather much more interested in texting. Really, we think she was trying to blow up the universe by tweeting that she was with Biebs. In truth, if not the earth, then some other big thing would blow up given that Oprah and Bieber have a combined Twitter following of 43,849,602.
Oprah's interview with Justin Bieber will air on Oprah's OWN network for "Oprah's Next Chapter" on November 25. Look forward to Bieber opening up to Oprah about his growth as an artist, the pitfalls of fame and living in the spotlight. See our photo outtakes from this mind-blowing fairytale on Racked Chicago's Facebook page.
