Usher values creativity and helping others more than winning awards
Usher doesn't care about awards and just wants to be creative.
The 'OMG' hitmaker has sold more than 65 million albums and has been nominated at numerous award ceremonies including the BRITS, MTV Video and Europe Music Awards, Billboard and the Grammys but says what spurs him on more than anything is motivating others.
He explained: "I tend to do things that are motivating for others and continue to be creative, open-minded and believe in my dreams. At this stage, doing something for the good of others is bigger than an award, bigger than a new album or new bling."
However, while he loves making music, Usher's favourite way of relaxing and getting new inspiration is going to art museums all over the world.
He told Britain's HELLO! magazine:" I love to travel and see the world, taking in art museums. I really enjoyed the Louvre when I was there not so long ago. I just love to talk to people as much as I can, talking about what's going on in their life and what they're experiencing."
