Usher recently sat down with Nylon and gave his thoughts on the recent footage that surfaced of Justin Bieber singing a song filled with racist remarks.
“I gave every bit of advice and always told him it was up to him if he really wanted this,” Usher says in an interview with Nylon. “Now that he has it, as an adult, it’s his to manage.”
Usher went on to go into detail about the situation and his part in it all.
“Do I turn my head in shame based off of what I see, what I know?” he says. “Nah, I don’t because it’s all part of life’s process. Am I in it with him? Yeah.”
“Artistic development made me who I am,” he says. “Somebody took the time to help me find what it is that works for me as an entertainer and who I am as a music maker.”
