Justin Bieber To Appear On 'Oprah's Next Chapter'

Pop music superstar Justin Bieber will sit down with Oprah Winfrey as part of a special November episode of OWN's Oprah's Next Chapter that will air across several Discovery-owned channels.

The special, taped today in Chicago, will debut on OWN Nov. 25, then air on Discovery Networks International female-targeted channels including TLC (Latin America), Home & Health (Asia Pacific) and Real Time (Western Europe) beginning Nov. 26, said network officials.

Bieber is the latest in a string of marquee music performers to appear on Oprah's Next Chapter in recent months. Winfrey's Aug. 19 interview with Grammy-winning singer Rihanna drew 2.5 million viewers, the second most watched show in network history.

Winfrey last month also interviewed Grammy-winning R&B artist Usher.
