The past few years has been a challenge for Justin Bieber, but as he recently showed fans in a recent Instagram post, it’s possible to learn from those hardships and become a much better person. After all, life is a series of lessons.

Someone who can not only vouch for the “Sorry” singer but also be proud of the person he’s become is his protégée turned friend, Madison Beer.

Fans may remember that the “Let Me Love You” singer is the one who discovered Madison, and got her signed to his record label. The two quickly became friends over the past few years and Madison recently discussed how amazing their friendship is with ET Online. She said, “It’s awesome that I have someone who I literally looked up to my whole childhood as my mentor.”

Seeing her mentor go through some tough times over the past few years, but come out on the other side is something she’s also very proud of him for. Madison continued to say, “he’s so focused and driven and, you know, he has his head on straight, which is really important. He's at such a good place in his life right now and I’m just happy to see how happy and healthy he is.”

Their friendship has also gone the way of the recording studio, as Madison revealed that Justin may be featured on a song or two on her upcoming album. “We've made multiple records together. Are they going to come out? I don't know, but there's definitely stuff in the works, so I guess you'll have to wait and see,” she said.

Considering Justin has released some pretty major and amazing collaborations with other artists as of late, we have no doubt that whatever he’s worked on Madison with will probably skyrocket to the top of the charts.

Here’s hoping she decided to put it on her album or just release the songs for fans to enjoy.
