This Sunday (Nov. 25) Justin Bieber will be interviewed on Oprah’s Next Chapter at 9 pm, the exact same time Lindsay Lohan will be premiering as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick. Can’t figure out which one to watch? I know how you feel.
Check out our list below and be sure to set your TiVo for whichever one you miss.
Watch Bieber on Own if you like:
Celebrity gossip — If you’re constantly keeping tabs on the latest celebrity news watch Bieber. While the segment was filmed before his presumed breakup with Selena Gomez (note: they were photographed out together after the news) he still provided insights into their relationship. He said they occasionally take back exits or use decoys but he never makes her separate from him. “I don’t want her to ever feel like I’m ashamed of her,” he said. ”A lot of guys do that — especially in the business — they don’t want to be seen with the girl, so they make them ride in separate cars and do all that getaway stuff.”
Backstage looks at the Believe tour — Oprah went backstage to the sold-out concert in Rosemount, Illinois and got an exclusive look at the inner workings. She also got a glimpse of what it’s like to be One Less Lonely Girl.
Keeping an updated list of your idol’s marriage plans — Justin Bieber revealed to Oprah he plans to walk down the aisle by 25. Oprah encouraged him to rethink that plan because he’s too young for such a big commitment — especially in a fast paced industry. ”Because your whole 20s is about discovering who you really are and you owe that to yourself, particularly because you are in the business that you’re in, and it’s not a lot of self-discovery time because so much is already defined for you,” she told him in the interview. Justin said he’ll think about it.
Subliminal advertising — Oprah managed to work in her some of her unofficial favourite things (score) by taking Justin shopping and sharing some gift-giving tips.
Watch Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor if you like:
Fledging stars making a comeback — Lohan is getting her share of bad reviews but if she pulls of Taylor’s charismatic yet mysterious allure it’ll be the comeback story of the year. Unfortunately, I don’t think it will happen but it’s always fun to hope, right? And she’s not in jail, so that’s a start. Producer Larry A. Thompson told Hollywood Reporter: “We had to get through quite a bit, and making a movie with Lindsay Lohan is not for the faint of heart. During production I certainly turned 50 shades of white, but we got it in the can and I think it’s good.”

Not long after it was announced that Lindsay Lohan will host an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, there are reports that she’ll play classy dame Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie.
“Liz and Dick” will focus on Taylor’s up and down marriages to actor Richard Burton. I wasn’t sure what to think of the project at first but if it’s done properly it could be the probation diva’s comeback role. The 25-year-old is a fine actress, it’s just her private life and brief jail stints that have caused colleagues to call her unprofessional.
As always, there’s a catch. Access Hollywood reports she’ll only be allowed to take part in the movie if she obeys the judge’s orders relating to her 2007 conviction for driving under the influence.
Do you think she’ll make it?
NBC doesn’t want to let go of ‘Project Runway.’ The company is going to court in an attempt to block the show from moving to Lifetime.
The network accused the Weinstein Company, which owns ‘Project Runway’, of “violating its rights by making the deal with Lifetime,” the New York Times reports.
According to NBC, they were promised the opportunity to match any offers made for the program. They claim that Harvey Weinstein, the chief executive of the Weinstein Company, made the deal with Lifetime in February and continued to make fake negotiations for two more months.
The Weinstein Company’s lawyer, David Boies, stated that “We believe that this lawsuit is without merit. While good for the market for lawyers, it is always unfortunate when parties try to win in court what they have lost in the marketplace.”
‘Project Runway’ is supposed to debut on Lifetime in November.
