Usher defends Justin Bieber for his racist comments

Washington: Usher defended Justin Bieber over his racist `n` word videos that were released recently.

The 35 year-old singer, who had worked with the 20-year-old pop brat when he was a young teen, reportedly posted a statement about the controversial comments Bieber made 5 years ago, saying that the `Baby` hit maker was "naive" back then.

He continued saying that though Bieber might not have chosen the best of paths, he can vouch that the star is "unequivocally not a racist".

The R and B singer, who also shared a snap of himself with a young Bieber, added that kids who follow the star can take inspiration and learn from his mistakes.
