The world learned Justin Bieber through Usher who took the Canadian native under his wing. As time passed, Justin created his own fandom thanks to his musical prowess, consistency and good looks. But fans had expected their bromance during Usher’s Super Bowl halftime, and Justin was nowhere to be found. Now, Usher gives the perfect explanation as to how things panned out between them.

Usher Talks Relationship With Justin Bieber

During his interview with The Breakfast Club’s host Charlamagne tha God, Usher explained that he spoke to someone connected to Justin about the Super Bowl but not the singer himself. However, the feedback was that Justin had other things, and this, Usher understood.

In his words:

“You know what? They did work out with Justin. I honored and recognized that my brother… I think that it might have been the fact that he was just wanting to tell a different story right now. And I understand that. But we did have a brief conversation, and we’re gonna do something else in the future.”

Moving forward, Usher has nothing but high hopes for Justin. He claimed they would work out something in the future while adding that Justin would surely perform at the Super Bowl. The R&B singer doesn’t say when exactly, but he exalted the Canadian-born, maintaining that his career deserves it.

“He’s gonna play the Super Bowl. I’ll go ahead and give you that in the future. I profess that upon his life and over his time because he has a career that deserves it,” he said per E! Online.

Meanwhile, Justin showed as much love for his mentor by attending the Super Bowl with his wife Hailey Bieber. The singer, who hung out with the Kardashian-Jenner clan earlier that day, was spotted dancing to Usher’s song.
