The 'Boyfriend' star says he only has about three close friends that he trusts with his personal life.

Justin Bieber has admitted he sometimes gets "lonely" and "gloomy" while out on the road, and claims he only has "like three close friends" despite all of his fame and success.

The 'Boyfriend' singer says he often has days when he feels down because he is "human", and tries to see his good friends as much as his busy promotional schedule allows.

"Of course, yeah, I get lonely sometimes," Justin tells Oprah Winfrey in the new episode of Oprah's Next Chapter. "You just feel sometimes that you need someone to be thee with you and that can be lonely.

"Sometimes [I get depressed]," Justin admitted. 'Not super super super depressed, but I get days when I'm just down and gloomy, because I'm human."

The 'As Long As You Love Me' singer is then heard going on to admit that despite having over 30 million followers on Twitter, he only counts a handful of people as his true close friends.

"I really don't have a lot of friends," the Canadian pop star reveals. "I have like three close friends that I'll fly out to see me or chat with or call, but I mean, that's really the truth.
