Barry Gibb on Justin Bieber: "Heading for a brick wall"

Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" rolls out the red carpet for a musical icon and fellow Brit, as Barry Gibb joins the program in a face to face, primetime interview.

The lone surviving member of the famed Bee Gees pop group, Gibb and his brothers spent much of their lives battling the glare of the public spotlight. While current entertainment phenom Justin Bieber weathers a series of storms stemming from his own incidents, Morgan solicits Gibb's reaction:

"Well, what I see with Justin Bieber is sort of what I see with Andy, you know," said Gibb, referencing his youngest brother, a non-Bee Gee who charted three number one singles in the U.S. before passing away shortly after his 30th birthday and following years of drug and alcohol abuse. "You're heading for a brick wall. And that's a shame, because this is a great talent. This kid's got great gifts, you know ... I just think it's time to grow up. It's time to grow up and - and be what - all these young girls love you, be a good example."

More than a decade since the Bee Gee's released their final new album as a full group, Gibb notes that Bieber now faces the same problems that have plagued many successful entertainers: hangers on, yes-men, and mooches:

"You have a lot of people around you, that just want to have a party, you know, and live off what it is that you're getting attention for," he tells Piers Morgan. "And, uh, I think that's the problem. It's always the problem."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan and Gibb's discussion on the pitfalls of fame, and for the full interview with the only living Bee Gee, watch CNN at 9p.

Deepak Chopra on Jay Leno's next chapter: "He has to continue"

On the heels of the final taping of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", and roughly two hours prior to the airing of comedian's final show as host, "Piers Morgan Live" pondered the next chapter in Leno's historic career.

With Deepak Chopra joining his show for a live interview, Piers Morgan asked the mind-body healing pioneer to share his advice for the man that kept his program atop the ratings for more than two decades.

"He has to continue," said Chopra. "If he now retires and goes to Florida he'll ultimately end up languishing in the nursing home."

The author of "Timeless You: The Biology of Youth & the Wisdom of Experience," Chopra suggested that Leno has but only one path to follow: FULL POST

Barry Gibb on the passing of his three younger brothers: "Nobody really knew how to deal with it all"

Coming up tonight at 9, Piers Morgan opens his New York studio to entertainment icon and fellow countryman Barry Gibb, as the former Bee Gees star joins the program for a face to face, primetime interview.

The sole surviving member of the famed pop music group, the 67-year-old shares his feelings on outliving each of his male siblings, all of whom were his junior:

"I did mope around for a few months, good few months. And the whole family did. Nobody really knew how to deal with it all, because it's the loss of three brothers," says Gibb, referencing fellow Bee Gee's and twin brothers Maurice Gibb and Robin Gibb, who died in 2003 and 2012 respectively, as well as Andy Gibb, a solo performer who passed away unexpectedly in 1988.

"He was only 30 years old," explains Barry Gibb, speaking of Andy, whose death followed years of alcohol and drug use. "So it was all of that. And then we had to go through that valley, you know, the whole family. Even now, my mother is still, um, uh, one way or the other, she goes up and she goes down." FULL POST

Jacqueline Bisset on her Golden Globe victory: "I was on a magic carpet...and I floated down the aisle"

Three days since delivering one of the more bizarre acceptance speeches in Golden Globes history, on Wednesday evening actress Jacqueline Bisset joined "Piers Morgan Live" with insight into a moment that dropped jaws around the world.

"Did you have a couple of alcoholic tipples to get you in the mood," wondered the host.

Bisset quickly responds in the negative:

"No," she says, putting the rumors to rest. "Sober. And not on drugs either."

So, if not alcohol, nor narcotics, what then was running through the 69-year-old Brit's system as she made her way to the stage? As she revealed to Piers Morgan, the actress's performance was fueled simply by energy and nerves: FULL POST
