Usher's children think he is a "superhero".

The 'OMG' hitmaker - who has two kids, three-year-old Usher V, and two-year-old Naviyd with former wife Tameka Foster -revealed even when he is away on tour he makes sure he talks to and prays with his children every day.

He told Irish TV station TV3: "My kids see me as a superhero, I'm like superdad to my kids. If I'm not with them every day we still see each other, we pray before dinner and we talk before bedtime."

Usher, 32, also loves being a mentor to 17-year-old pop star Justin Bieber and admitted he sees himself as a father figure to the 'Baby' singer.

He explained: "I consider myself a friend and a father figure to him, someone who he can confide in and also someone who will lead him in the right direction. He's very young, this is only one year of success and I don't think he's going to have the type of career that'll be short.

"Everything I've taught him has been from the shoulders of people I've stood on in the past like Michael Jackson."
