Recording artist Usher, who is Justin Bieber‘s career mentor, recently reminisced about meeting the Bieb for the first time, and how he knew right away that Justin had star quality.  Usher says he realised right from the start that Justin would be a girl magnet, and that he knew he had a huge talent on his hands.

As for the nature of that talent, Usher insists that Justin came out at a time when pop was very “Disney and Nickolodeon,” and that part of the reason Justin’s success was so instant was because he was exactly the opposite of all that.  Which seems weird to me, because what part of Justin doesn’t fit in with the Disney crowd?  Now Slayer – there’s your exact opposite.
