Usher had a helping hand in exposing Justin Bieber’s talents to the world, but the mentor will not be taking credit for the amount of time Justin’s penis has been exposed. “He does have a brain of his own,” Usher told Howard Stern. “What he chose to do with his penis is his prerogative you know what I’m saying. He’s managing that aspect of his life. I have nothing to do with Justin Bieber’s private parts.”
During the interview, Usher also discussed his role in Justin’s career that has had many ups and downs since his rise to fame. “I mean as a mentor, as he’s accepted my opinion, I can give my perspective. I feel like I’m talking to someone who has had hardships,” he said.
