Usher Covers Billboard; Speaks On New Album, Justin Bieber & More
Usher has graced the cover of the latest issue of Billboard, and his feature was pretty candid: he reveals what’s holding up his new album, being mentored by Diddy in his (much) younger days, his UR Experience tour with August Alsina and much more.
Below, we’ve included an excerpt from the interview where he speaks on his own mentee, Justin Bieber:
Our relationship is more man-to-man now. He’s making his own decisions and it’s important to show support. I can say I’m not happy with all the choices my friend has made, but I’m supportive of him. I try my hardest to give as much positive reinforcement as I can. I’ll punch him in the fu***ng chest when I need to, and give him a hug and kiss when I need to. It’s more than just mentoring. I love the kid.
