No one seems to be controlling Justin Bieber, or even offering him some friendly advice and guidance on how not to be a total dickwad for the rest of his life. His mother’s too busy cashing the checks and spreading her pro-life message across the country, Scooter Braun is too busy contemplating how he’s a grown man with a nickname after a toddler’s bike and Usher… well, he’s finally ready to step up to the plate. He’ll beat the shit out of Justin… you know, if need be.
Usher is realizing there are limits to his influence, especially when it comes to Bieber’s current behavior. “Our relationship is more man-to-man now,” he says. “He’s making his own decisions and it’s important to show support. I can say I’m not happy with all the choices my friend has made, but I’m supportive of him. I try my hardest to give as much positive reinforcement as I can. I’ll punch him in the f—ing chest when I need to, and give him a hug and kiss when I need to. It’s more than just mentoring. I love the kid.”
Well… okay. I guess there are sometimes when you just need to “punch [someone] in the fucking chest” or whatever. Sure, I’ll go for that. That will definitely work. Sounds like a bit of the blind leading the blind here.
