The status of their relationship is unclear after their recent break up.
But a loved-up Justin Bieber was full of praise for his on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez during an interview with Oprah Winfrey recorded last month.
”I am all about genuine people, and I feel like she’s just one of the most genuine people,’ he told the talk show host in the chat which aired on Sunday night. ‘She just has a good heart. And I can talk to her about anything.”

Acknowledging she was his ‘girlfriend,’ Justin said he made sure they were always together, when caught by the paparazzi.
”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.”
He also admitted to being unable to resist public displays of affection with Selena, revealing that the most romantic thing he had done for her was arranging dinner in the middle of the Staples Centre, with a viewing of Titanic on the big screen.
The couple are said to have broken up earlier this month, but were spotted together at an American Music Awards after party last week.
But, initially mindful of Selena getting death threats from his legions of fans, Justin admits he had to think hard about going public with the relationship.
“I’m always thoughtful about my fans,’ he said. ‘People will say means things but I need to be happy. I can’t be single my own life. If I can be with everybody, with all of the fans I could!”
However, Oprah was more stern with the star about his professed plans to be married by the time he was 25, and urged him to rethink – ‘I think 25′s too young,’ she declared.
‘You are Oprah and you’re telling me not to get married at 25. I should provably listen to you,’ Justin replied. ‘We’ll see when I get there but I’m not there yet.’
