Is Justin Bieber rubbishing the role R&B singer Usher plays in his career?
Unfortunately for the ‘Confessions’ singer, the answer to that question is…’Yeah.’ For, after seeing his bodyguard accused of attacking a photographer last year, last week saw him arrive at his deposition where he quizzed on the matter.
It was there, perhaps to the horror of the pair’s mutual mentor LA Reid, did a ‘camera-aware’ Bieber showcase a side of his personality Olivia Pope herself would be hard pressed to tidy.
Why? Watch him mock, sneer and insult his way through the deposition below…
Putting his Marky Mark impersonation aside, we can’t but feel a little saddened by the above.
For, one would have hoped the strongest release of his career (‘Journals‘) would have been accompanied with a drama-free era that would have seen push R&B back into the zeitgeist, and give himself a unique point of difference when placed next the One Direction‘s of the world.
Alas, the last year has been anything but an enjoyable ride, and now- after intentionally throwing the ‘Usher discovered me‘ narrative into disrepute, we’d say it’d take a lot more than a carefully worded press release to convince fans that he did otherwise!
