Usher on Justin Bieber: 'Our relationship is man-to-man now and I'm showing support'

'Burn' hitmaker Usher has revealed that while he thinks Justin Bieber has made some poor decisions over the past few years, he has a 'man-to-man' bond with the heartthrob and thinks he can provide solid guidance when asked. 

Speaking to Billboard about his relationship with the 'As Long As You Love Me' superstar, Usher confessed that he feels as though he was born to be a mentor so is proud to have helped Bieber through some difficult times:

“My mom always says, ‘You talk to everybody like they're your kids.’ I'm like, ‘I'm sorry, I was born to be a dad.' Our relationship (with Bieber) 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 f***ing 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."
