Usher takes his role as Justin’s mentor very seriously, as he revealed backstage at the American Music Awards. Read on to hear all the advice he has for Justin’s career!

Justin Bieber‘s career has benefited greatly from Usher’s mentorship, and that isn’t something that Usher takes lightly, especially while Justin’s dealing with his turbulent romance with Selena Gomez. While backstage at the American Music Awards on Nov. 18, Usher opened up about what his continued presence in Justin’s life and career will be!

Speaking with reporters backstage at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater, Usher was asked what his advice was for Justin when it comes to being a long-term artist. He explained that he offers his own career as an example for Justin, saying, “The proof is in the pudding. The longer you do it, the more of an example you can set and being able to be that to him, being a mentor, that is the example.”

The R&B superstar gushed about his protégé’s success and also explained that he’ll continue to encourage growth for Justin. “This is an early start for him,” Usher said. “He has had an incredible few years, and I’m going to continue to push him to be his best self.”

Judging by Justin’s phenomenal success already, it’s obvious that Usher is a great mentor. We hope that the two continue to work together to push Justin’s career to even greater heights!
