Usher: Justin Bieber Needs to “Manage” His Own Life Now

Justin Bieber and UsherUsher believes that Justin Bieber needs to "manage" his own life now that he's an adult.

The rapper has mentored the pop heartthrob since his career took off at the age of just 13, seven years ago, but he hasn't tried to stage an intervention following Justin's recent run-ins with the law and bad publicity as he insists the youngster needs to learn from his own mistakes.

"I gave every bit of advice and always told him it was up to him if he really wanted this. Now that he has it, as an adult, it's his to manage. Do I turn my head in shame based off of what I see, what I know? Nah, I don't because it's all part of life's process. Am I in it with him? Yeah," Usher said in Nylon.

Usher, 35, was mentored by Diddy from the age of 15, so he understands why it's important to have someone else in the industry looking out for you. "Artistic development made me who I am. Somebody took the time to help me find what it is that works for me as an entertainer and who I am as a music maker," he explained.

Ray JRay J was arrested in Beverly Hills last night.

The R&B star, who is Brandy Norwood's younger brother, reportedly got into a violent confrontation and spat in a police officer's face at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that police were initially called to the scene because the 33-year-old star made contact with an unidentified woman's butt in the bar.

Although it was determined to be "incidental" and not sexual battery, Ray J was asked to leave the hotel, but he allegedly became belligerent and refused to leave so security made a citizen's arrest. The situation is said to have escalated further when law enforcement arrived at the scene and the "I Hit It First" hitmaker kicked out the back window of the police car and spat in an arresting officer's face as he was being handcuffed.

He was booked for trespassing, resisting arrest, vandalism and battery on a police officer, and later released.

The late rapper, who died from injuries sustained in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in September 1996, is said to have sworn at police officer Chris Carroll, who was one of the first responders on the scene.

What happened? Who did it?' And he was just kind of ignoring me. He was making eye contact with me here and there, but he's trying to yell at Suge [Knight, Tupac's friend and record label boss]. And I kept asking over and over, 'Who did this? Who shot you?' And he basically kept ignoring me."

However, Chris claims he witnessed a swift change in the rapper's demeanor as he realized he wouldn't make it:

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Clothing, Style, Rivalries, Rumors

Kanye West and Pharrell WilliamsKanye West is reportedly jealous of Pharrell Williams.

The "Blood On The Leaves" rapper is said to be keeping a close eye on the "Happy" hitmaker after reports he is close to signing a deal with Adidas, the same sportswear brand that Kanye has been commissioned to design a clothing range for.

"They are competitive in both music and fashion, Kanye always watches what Pharrell does. He thinks having a similar artist working on their own brand for Adidas will make his collection less special," a source said.

Kanye signed a deal with Adidas in December last year after a spat with the Nike - over royalties for his exclusive collection of Air Yeezy sneakers - which resulted in the end of his business relationship with the sportswear brand.
