Usher Most Admires Justin Bieber’s ‘Excitement And Innocence’

Bieber's mentor tells MTV News the teen sensation has 'so much more in store for the future.'

With so much accomplished in 2010, [artist id=”3187077″]Justin Bieber[/artist] has certainly set the bar high for 2011. But the teen singer is already gearing up for next year. Bieber will not only release his much-anticipated 3-D flick, “Never Say Never” , but he has also teased that he’d like to release an album of all-new material sometime later next year.

His mentor, [artist id=”1270″]Usher[/artist], thinks that at this point, the sky’s the limit.

“As far as music and entertainment, that’s the beginning,” Usher told MTV News at Sunday’s AMAs, where Bieber performed and took home four awards .

“There’s so much more in store for the future, or at least there’s a ton of things we can do and will, and with the support of his fans who will continue to just grow and grow and grow.”

At 16, Bieber has accomplished what few manage with many more years in the music business, but Usher said he wants to ensure that Bieber doesn’t stop enjoying it all as his popularity continues to grow and his schedule gets busier.

Asked what he admires most about Justin, Usher said, “His excitement and innocence in it. And I don’t mean that in a light way because I think that he’s absolutely enjoying every moment of it, as any young man his age would, but in a different way because [of] the hard work that has gone in and led to the dream that has become a reality. And every time you have an opportunity do something incredible, I tell him to do his best and be conscious that what you’re doing today should last forever and eternity.”
