You think you know everything about Justin Bieber? Think again. One of the world’s favorite interviewers, Oprah Winfrey literally just finished her sit down chat with one of the world’s biggest popstars along with his famed manager, Scooter Braun. After pictures started appearing on Instragram via Scooter and Justin, it was quickly confirmed that both had joined Oprah for an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter.

Yesterday, Oprah was a special guest on Good Morning America and gave the viewers a sneak preview of what to expect during her sit down with the Biebs. Oprah took Justin to her favorite restaurant in Chicago for a meal and afterwards, the two hit Ralph Lauren to doing a little shopping. Justin also serenaded the crowd outside the restaurant. Justin’s episode will debut on November 24th worldwide- Oprah’s biggest television broadcast since Michael Jackson in 1993. First look preview below.

Check out a preview of Justin’s Oprah interview after the jump.

This coming Sunday, a new episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter with air and this time her celebrity one on one is with Black Eyed Peas singer and multi-platinum solo artist Fergie. A while back, the first preview came out and we got a taste of what to expect, with Fergie talking about her past drug use, career, and what it was like going through the rumours that Josh Duhamel had cheated on her with a stripper.

Now some extended clips have been revealed from the episode where we see a little more of what to expect. In one of the clips below, you actually see her reaction to Oprah Winfrey when she asks her about the cheating rumor and how it affected their relationship. In another clip, we learn what Duhamel says he loves about his wife. Of course he loves watching Fergie, perform onstage—but that’s not what has kept their nine-year relationship strong. He Josh shares a side of Fergie the world doesn’t get to see. Fergie also talks about the yin and the yang of her working relationship with BEP front man will.i.am. and why she calls him her “work husband”.

The episode airs this Sunday, October 21 at 9/8c. Get a sneak peek at the episode below.

Just days ago, OWN announced the Oprah Winfrey would be bringing back her Oprah’s Favorite Things special this fall, after everyone thought it was done. I’m so excited about the November 2-hour special and can’t wait to see the look on the faces of the military wives when Oprah breaks the news to them.

For November’s issue of Harper’s Bizarre, Oprah was photographed by the amazing Terry Richardson and the photos look amazing. Winfrey was styled by Ann Caruso in a fire engine red Jil Sander coat, a white Escada menswear-inspired tux, and a smattering of blinged-out rings. She. Looks. Fabulous. In the issue, she explains to her interviewer, Laura Brown that she just tries to “live her best life” and is no superwoman. Says Oprah, “Like this morning, I had the intention to meditate for 20 minutes, but I really only made it about 12. And then I said, ‘Okay, don’t beat yourself up; you did the 12.’ I had the intention to work out for an hour, but I only did a half. And even with that I was still a half hour later getting here, so…”

Nicole Kidman also looks stunning in the issue, gracing the cover of the magazine as well. I’ve included Oprah’s pictures as well as the cover featuring Kidman below. Enjoy!

The word on the street is that Oprah Winfrey and her network OWN are doing much better these days, after a difficult start. Now, she’s ready to give back the way she does best – Oprah’s Favorite Things.

The network announced on Friday that the annual giveaway show would return as a two-hour special on OWN at 8-10 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, November 18. “You get a car, you get a car, you get a car!” What surprises will she have in store for the unsuspecting audience? I can’t wait to find out. I’m especially excited to see their reactions because as far as everyone knew, Oprah wasn’t doing the big giveaway anymore. The audience for this episode was an unsuspecting group of deserving military spouses. Oprah, her staff and her team of experts will also take viewers behind the scenes to show how it all comes together.

Viewers will also have the opportunity to Watch and Win select items featured within segments of the show. By texting the correct key word to a short code at designated points throughout the premiere airing, viewers will be entered into a drawing to win some of Oprah’s Favorite Things from 2012. Additional details on how to enter will be available starting November 1 online at www.oprah.com/favoritethings.

The Butler is a film coming in 2013 about a White House butler that served eight American Presidents over the course of three decades. The cast is actually quite unreal. There’s Robin Williams as Dwight D. Eisenhower; Melissa Leo as Mamie Eisenhower; Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan; Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan; James Marsden as JFK; John Cusack as Tricky Dick Nixon; Liev Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson; Nelsan Ellis as Martin Luther King, Jr; as well as Forest Whitaker, Vanessa Redgrave, Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz, Alex Pettyfer, Cuba Gooding Jr, Terrence Howard and as mentioned in my title, Oprah Winfrey.

The film was inspired by Wil Haygood’s Washington Post article about an African-American man who served as a butler (Forest Whitaker, as shown in the header photo) in the Whitehouse for eight presidents over three decades. On Monday, Oprah tweeted the photo below that shows her looking all sultry while smoking a cigarette and sitting next to Terrance Howard. Oprah says, “And THAT’s a Wrap! Terrance Howard and me in our goodbye”love scene.” Check out the photo she is referring to below.

Last night on Oprah’s Next Chapter, R&B superstar Usher sat down with Oprah Winfrey in his home and opened up about everything. Since Oprah had been trying to get an interview with him for years, she took this opportunity to grill him about everything. Usher has had some big ups and downs recently and nothing was off limits.

Oprah talked about his controversial marriage to ex-wife Tameka Foster, allegedly firing his mom from managing his career, his recent custody battle of his kids, and even the death of his stepson earlier this summer. He also talked about his father who was absent for all of his life, and then reuniting with him a while back before he died a year later.

It’s a very interesting interview and really worth checking out. Thankfully if you missed it, I have included the entire episode below. PS. Oprah even asks if he’s ever made love with his own music in the background. LOL. Find out what he said when you watch it.

In contrast to the Celebrity 100 list which rates celebrities based on fame and how much they earned, this new list is strictly based on how much they earn and there are some surprises.

What is not is a surprise is that Oprah Winfrey tops the list. Forbes estimates that between May 2011 and May 2012, she earned $165 million. This is the fourth year in a row that she has topped this list. Number five is one that I didn’t see coming, but after reading where the money came from, it totally made sense. Dr. Dre brought in a whopping $130 million, but not from the recording industry. He made the money from his Beats by Dr. Dre headphones because last August, handset maker HTC paid $300 million for a 51% stake in the company, resulting in pretty much most of that $130 million for Dre says Forbes. Check out the Top 20 below and how much they each made. I’ve also included a video from Forbes commenting on the Top 5 of the list. Britney Spears made the list too!

Hot off her interview with Rihanna on Sunday night, Oprah Winfrey is looking to book the next big ‘get’. Given that OWN’s two highest rated shows focused on musicians, it’s a savvy move to look at someone in the music industry. Oprah’s sit-down with RiRi garnered 2.5 million viewers, netting the network’s second highest ratings. Only Winfrey’s exclusive chat with Bobbi Kristina after Whitney Houston’s death generated higher ratings with 3.5 million. Producers are trying to book a certain embattled singer, but unfortunately she’s denied their request, as revealed by O on her Twitter. Have any guesses on who?

Before I reveal who it is, I quickly wanted to congratulate Oprah and her team for turning the beleaguered network around. It’s definitely not a huge success yet, but it’s certainly on the uptick. OWN just notched its 31st consecutive week of total day growth across all key demos versus year ago numbers. It’s up double digits in both primetime and total day for the year as well.

The momentum is definitely helping launch successful new shows. Lovetown which premiered after the Rihanna interview, bowed as the second highest premiere on the network ever. The show is conducting a unique social experiment on love focusing on residents of a Georgian town. Critics and naysayers ready to write off the network, forgot the O factor. With her devoting all her efforts on the network now, there is no way she’s going down without a fight.
