Justin Bieber - Usher Happy To Be Part Of Bieber's Success

Justin Bieber's rise to fame reminds Usher of his own career.

The 'Climax' singer is a mentor to the 'Baby' hitmaker and revealed he loves being involved in 18-year-old Justin's career because it brings back memories of when he was first starting out.

He told MTV:''I relive every bit of it, from the screaming fans and the first reactions, shutting down the malls. The first reaction is like no other. To be able to be there, to be there with him and go through those emotions and see that shock for the first time [is exciting].''

Usher also explained he isn't worried about Justin going off the rails because he has good friends and supporters around him.

He said: ''Cool part about it is, he's really able to live a dream that I think most teenagers would want to. To be able to have friends like [boxer Floyd] Mayweather. They are actual friends, hang out, talk. It's really cool to be able to have friends all around the world and people that can relate to your reality.

I don't think Michael [Jackson] had people like that. I didn't have a ton of people like that. I had Puff [P. Diddy]. I had JD [producer Jermaine Dupri] ... but to be able to have friends all around the world that keep you, it's cool.''
