Inside the issue, she dishes on his “New Flame“, why he’s not ready for another album, Justin Bieber and being a single dad.
Peep excerpts below:
On his “New Flame” Grace Miguel:
She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career.
On his next album:
I just ain’t ready. Meaning I have more that I want to say and more that I want to do. My process is pretty different. L.A. Reid will tell you, it takes two albums to make one with Usher.
On not being a morning person:
I’m not a morning person, but I’ve become one as the result of having kids. The morning is my private time to spend with my boys. The music industry doesn’t allow you to go to bed until five in the morning anyway. You have to just keep rolling.
On how he stays in shape:
These days, I try to eat for my blood type when I’m not eating for the fat kid inside me. A doctor I know came up with it, but hasn’t released it yet, so I don’t want to tell you too much about it. But the idea is to eat the foods that work best for your body. For my blood type the meats I can eat are pork, beef and fish.
On Justin Bieber:
Our relationship is more man-to-man now. 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.
