Usher wants Justin Bieber to enjoy his success.
The 'Scream' hitmaker co-manages the teenage heartthrob and says the one piece advice he has for him is to make the most of everything and not worry over things out of his control.
He said: "I see him and his crazy life and just tell him to enjoy it. When I started out, things were crazy so I say to Justin, 'Life is not worth it if you're not living it. Creative people are perfectionists and obsess over things. Sometimes we need to relax and have fun. So Justin, enjoy it as I went round the world three times before I decided to look up and see it. Absorbing your surroundings when you travel is so important.' "
Usher also revealed how his latest album, 'Looking 4 Myself' represents his life at the moment.
The 'You Make Me Wanna' singer - who is currently embroiled in a bitter custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Foster over their two young sons - added to The Sun newspaper: "You spend an entire lifetime looking for yourself. You're always looking to better yourself, or looking for the centre of balance.
"You can analyse the decisions you've made, the places you've gone, the things you've done and experiences you've had, and ask yourself, 'Man, am I holding it together? Am I going through the same thing? Is this becoming repetitive? Do I need to change something about myself? Do I need to find the right me?'
"I felt it was a conversation worthy of the album title."
