Being a mentor to the young pop star Justin Bieber, “OMG” hitmaker Usher had given him an advice about not dating a fan.
The 16-year-old singer has been told to enjoy his success but to learn from his own mistakes and try to keep a distance from his fans.
“I tell Justin you’ve got to love all your fans without falling in love with them. I can’t say I’ve never dated a fan but it’s not a good idea. I tell him to understand that you are a fantasy to them and you should be mindful of that,” Usher said.
“And I encourage him to not take success so seriously so early. Have fun with it. And make friends!”
Meanwhile, Usher, who has two-year-old and 23-month-old sons Usher V and Naviyd with ex-wife Tameka Foster, is indeed grateful for his own success. He knows he’s very lucky and so he would never complain about his life.
“I’m so happy. I can’t complain. And if I did, people would have a fit,” he said.
“How could I complain when I get to do what I do, travel, be with my kids and have a grand life?”
