Usher has given his thumbs up to shows like The X Factor and The Voice, saying they can get voices heard.
The chart-topping singer, who performed as a guest on The X Factor in the UK last year, said: “I think they are very entertaining shows and a great creative outlet for aspiring artists.”
The 33-year-old, who joined his first band when he was 11, admitted hopefuls have to be prepared to put in the work if they want to have a successful career.
“Get out while you can! But seriously, it’s not an easy ride,” he advised.
“You need to be committed and in it for the long haul. There is no secret to staying on top, there is passion and there is relevance – which is what this next portion of my career is all about.”
Usher, the ambassador for Belvedere (RED), still has a wishlist of musicians he would like to collaborate with.
“I always look forward to working with the kings and queens of each genre. I’d also like to work with artists who inspired me to make music too – David Bowie, U2, Prince to name a few,” he said.
While there are “very exciting collaborations” on his upcoming 11th album, he is keeping his cards close to his chest by teasing: “You’ll have to wait to find out !”
Usher approuve des émissions comme XFactor et The Voice, disant qu’il peut faire entendre des voix.
Le chanteur, qui avait chanté comme invité à XFactor au Royaume Uni l’année dernière a dit “Je pense qu’il y a des émissions amusantes et d’importantes opportunités créatives pour les artistes aspirants”.
Le chanteur âgé de 33 ans, qui a rejoint son premier groupe quand il avait 11 ans, admet qu’un jeune doit être prêt à travailler dur s’il veut une grande carrière.
”Vous devez vous impliquer sur le long terme.” Mais sérieusement ce n’est pas un trajet simple”, il a conseillé.
“Vous avez besoin d’être dévoué pour la longue étape, Il n’y a pas de secrets pour rester au top, il y a la passion et il y a la pertinance – ce qui est tout pour cette prochaine partie de ma carrière”.
Usher, l’ambassadeur Belvedere (Red), a toujours une liste de musiciens avec qui il voudrait collaborer.
“Je regarde toujours vers le futur pour travailler avec les rois et reines de ce genre. Je voudrais aussi travailler avec des artistes qui m’ont inspiré à également faire de la musique. David Bowie, U2, Prince, pour en citer quelques uns”, il a dit. Tandis qu’il a des “collaborations très excitantes” dans son 11ème album, il garde ses cartes fermées contre lui en plaisantant : “Vous devez attendre pour découvrir !”.
Usher has revealed how being a dad has changed him for the better.
The chart-topping singer is father to two sons – four-year-old Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely, 2 – and, as he returned to the studio to record his seventh album, said he thinks fatherhood has improved his music.
“It has changed me to be a better man. I’m the most happiest with my children, wherever I am,” he said.
“My music is more expansive, understanding emotions that I never had known before having my boys.”
But Usher – who is the ambassador for Belvedere (RED) – insisted that the upcoming record wouldn’t be as personal as his previous offering, Raymond v. Raymond.
“This record is more about having fun and the celebration of life,” he said.
“The new sound comes from my recent experiences travelling around the world and talking to people as much as I could while I was travelling. I hope it will be music that my fans will really respond to.”
It’s a rather bold statement, considering his latest album also features Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, will.i.am, Akon, Timbaland, Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Hudson, just to name a few. But Guetta has a soft spot for the cinematic team-up with Ush, which he says is equal parts sentimental and hands-in-the-air euphoric.
“It’s just totally emotional,” Guetta said. “Some of the record is a proper ballad, and then it goes to that crazy dance beat. It’s perfect for him, because he’s famous for his ballads. And he’s also now famous for those big club records that he comes with. He’s an amazing dancer, so I felt like he was the artist that I needed.”
Usher and Guetta first previewed the song in Ibiza, Spain, earlier this summer, with the crowd demanding an encore performance of the sure-to-be-hit song.
“It was amazing,” Guetta gushed. “We were not supposed to do this. I always do these kinds of stupid things, playing records when I’m not supposed to play them. And Usher was so excited for this time to be in Ibiza performing in front of those people. He called me onstage and said, ‘Come on. Let’s do it.’ So we did it, and, yeah, they loved it. We had to do it again! They asked for one more.”
For some, the combination of Usher and Guetta might seem out of left field. While the DJ/producer works with a variety of artists, he has a pretty tight-knit musical family — but it may come as a surprise that Guetta has known Usher the longest.
“I actually speak very often about how thankful I am to will.i.am because he called me to produce ‘I Gotta Feeling’; Akon, when we started to work together, because I wasn’t famous in America; Kelly Rowland and all those guys that came to me when I was not known yet,” Guetta said. “But I have to say that the very first time when someone big from America asked me if I want to work with him, it was Usher. Like, a really long time ago, but we never had the time to do it. So I was so happy to be finally in the studio with him, because he spotted me when I was really not famous yet.”
Usher and Guetta already shot the video for “Without You” in Ibiza. The song will follow up Guetta’s current single, “Little Bad Girl,” which features Ludacris and Taio Cruz.

Pop superstar Usher wasn’t at the top of his game yesterday evening in Berlin.
The 32-year-old singer had been forced to cancel an earlier performance due to sickness, but attempted to go on stage the next evening. However, after two songs of listless lip-syncing and half-hearted dance moves, the crowd began to boo. Usher stood with his head bowed for nearly four minutes, before leaving the stage. An announcer then told the audience that the show was canceled due to sickness.
Usher’s rep later released a statement saying the star was “suffering from upper respiratory illness which is currently preventing him from performing a proper show. After consultation with doctors, he has been advised to reschedule the upcoming dates in order to get the rest he needs to ensure a complete recovery.” Scheduled shows in Antwerp and Rotterdam have been pushed back until March.
“I deeply regret having to reschedule the shows,” said Usher in a statement. “I am truly sorry for any inconvenience I have caused my fans. My fans are the best in the world and I am looking forward to getting better so that I can give them the show they deserve.”
