There’s no denying that Justin Bieber is one of the most popular pop stars of the moment, but Oprah Winfrey believes the superlatives can go beyond that where he’s concerned.

Above is a new preview for her upcoming special on Oprah’s Next Chapter, which will feature an exclusive interview with none other than The Biebs.

Not only does Oprah compare Justin to Michael Jackson, but she also puts him in the same category as Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

Perhaps in the full interview she’ll be a bit more specific and state that the only comparison admissible here is as regards the incredible number of screaming fans, because it sure sounds like she’s also equaling them on other levels as well.

I’m not saying that Justin doesn’t have his merits as a singer / pop artist, but he’s still years to go until he can even dream of being as accomplished as the late MJ and Elvis, or The Beatles.

Check out the preview above. Please note how confused Justin seems to be when Oprah tells him that he’s “a product of social media.” Must be because of this, or this.
