 Justin Bieber is someone I’m not just endorsing as a talent, he’s someone I’m nurturing as an artist. He’s my artist. He’s an incredible talent. He’s a young man who I think represents all of what’s needed in this time to be an artist and be successful. You look at the different genres of music now, and it’s either electric dance or acoustic sound — you’ve got the Jonas Brothers, and you’ve got Lady GaGa. I think that Justin’s able to do all of it — because he plays piano, he plays guitar, he plays drums, he can dance — so a lot of it is easy to pick when I introduce a different movement to him.

 Will's always talking about her, and how beautiful she is. She is beautiful! I'm going to have to reach out to Will and tell him to put us two together. She's cute!

 Confessions being the highest-selling R&B album of this decade, that is a lot to live up to. There are high peaks and low valleys in life, some moments will be higher than others, but it shouldn’t speak to the honesty and truth that you kinda go through in the process of making music. 
— Usher / March 31, 2010
 There are going to be some chapters of my career’s music that will be greater than others. I don’t feel I have to live up to anything, I just feel I have to be as honest and as artistic as I can.

 I want to hold my horses, I’m 31 — let me just take my time. I have two beautiful children, and managing the process of it, I want to be comfortable — I’m not rushing, you know, to get old, I’m young.

 I’m pretty sure it did. To have my life as heavily scrutinised as it is, and people to have their opinions, you know, everybody’s going to have one and unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do about it. It was one of the most sincere occurrences in my life. Unfortunately, it just did not work out and we’ve moved on to be very happy.

 I didn’t become an artist to hide out. Anonymity is something that goes out the window when you decide that you want to be an entertainer. I just hope that my kids will be passionate young men, that they will believe in something and stick to it until it is finished.

 I love a woman's curves, her shape, particularly n*de. I really do enjoy that. And you should know that I'm a fan of lingerie, I mean more than most men.

 I would not be the artist, performer, and philanthropist I am today without the influence of Michael. Jackson... He broke barriers, he changed radio formats. With music, he made it possible for people like Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama to impact the mainstream world. His legacy is unparalleled Michael Jackson will never be forgotten.

 May God cover you Michael. We all lift your name up in prayer. I pray for the entire Jackson family particularly Michael's mother, children and all his fans that loved him so much. I would not be the artist, performer, and philanthropist I am today without the influence of Michael. I have great admiration and respect for him and I'm so thankful I had the opportunity to meet and perform with such a great entertainer, who in so many ways, transcended the culture. He broke barriers, he changed radio formats! With music, he made it possible for people like Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama to impact the mainstream world. His legacy is unparalleled Michael Jackson will never be forgotten.
