He adds, "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 be who he is -- that he'll continue to just mature. But you know in these days age of social media, there is no privacy and that kind of trial and elimination period is kind of done in front of a camera.

"I am hoping for the best. I don't look at as a negative though. I look at it as a teenager ... a teenager having to live his life in front of a camera. Imagine if you had to do that as a teenager?"

      Honestly he wanted to be famous and live in the spot light!! That’s the trade off…SORRY BIEBER! stop acting like a spoiled brat

      Usher will continue defending him until he kills someone. He made the choice to be an entertainer just like he’s making the choice to be an irresponsible Brat. Be responsible Bieber before someone gets hurt. Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn

        I really like and admire Usher, but in this case he’s wrong!! If he or someone doesn’t get this punk under control, bad things are going to happen. At some point Justin has to take responsibility for his poor decisions. No more excuses!1
