We never stop hearing about Justin Bieber. Not for his hit singles, but for becoming Hollywood's latest bad boy. From reckless driving in his neighborhood to other wild behavior, it's like the Biebs just can't catch a break. Luckily, someone is backing him up -- Usher, who's been there for him since the start.
In an interview on Ellen, Usher made sure everyone knows just how hard it is for a 19-year-old who's constantly in the spotlight.
"Key word, you started with young," he told the talk show host. "And I think all of us in some way have humble beginnings that pan out to be incredible and we hope that in his transition as friends and family who has helped him be who he is that he'll continue to just mature. But in this days age of social media, there is no privacy and that kind of trail and elimination period is kind of done in front of a camera."
Usher also wanted to defend all of the negative press Justin received in the past, saying, "It's been done in many, many other celebrities are product of it and some come out bad and some come out good. I'm hoping for the best."
Usher doesn't look at his behavior as a negative, though. He looks at it as Justin just being a teenager -- "a teenager having to live his life in front of a camera."
How do you feel about Justin's recent behavior? Does he have an excuse because he's young?
