While the jury is still out on whether Justin Bieber has reunited with on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez, one thing is for sure: He was smitten with her. At least he was when Oprah Winfrey interviewed him for Oprah’s Next Chapter.

“I am all about genuine people, and I feel like she’s just one of the most genuine people,” the 18-year-old singer told Winfrey during their intimate interview. “She just has a good heart. And I can talk to her about anything.”

The couple reportedly split earlier this month, but the two have since been spotted together, leading some to believe their relationship is back on.

However, during their year-long romance, Bieber made sure to keep himself close to Gomez, 20, when they were out in public. “I never make her separate from me because I don’t ever want her to feel like I’m ashamed with her,” he said. “If we get away, we’re getting away together, at least.”

As for Bieber’s future plans, the “Beauty and a Beat” hitmaker told Winfrey he wants a “handful of children” and could see himself settling down by 25. However, Winfrey didn’t think that was such a good idea. “I think 25 is too young,” she chastised.

After telling him to rethink his marriage plans, the Biebs seemed to heed Winfrey’s advice. “You are Oprah, and you’re telling me not to get married at 25. I should probably listen to you,” he said. “We’ll see when I get there, but I’m not there yet.”

Bieber also opened up about his personal struggles at the top. He may have over 30 million followers on Twitter, but the teenage heartthrob admitted even he can get lonely at times.

“You just feel sometimes you need someone to be there with you,” he said. “Some days you’ve gone through, you have pain in your heart because maybe you haven’t dealt with that. Some days you’re depressed and you don’t know why, because you haven’t dealt with it.”
