While recently visiting the The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Usher defended his friend but also gave him some advice too.
"Key word, you started with young. And I think all of us in some way have humble beginnings that pan out to be incredible and we hope that in his transition as friends and family who have helped him become who he is, that he'll continue to just mature but you know in this days age of social media. There is no privacy and that kind of trail and elimination period is kind of done in front of a camera. It's been done in many, many other celebrities are product of it and some come out bad and some come out good. I am hoping for the best. I don't look at as a negative though. I look at it as a teenager," Usher told Ellen.
"A teenager having to live his life in front of a camera . Imagine if you had to do that as a teenager," he added.
Usher has pretty much been in the same exact situation as Bieber, so we think he knows where he's coming from and should definitely be someone JB takes advice from. He also seems hopeful Justin will outgrow this stage he's in. What do you guys think?
