“The first thing that comes to mind is Michael Jackson, obviously,” Justin revealed .”I just think that his iconic brand and what he stood for as an artist was ground-breaking.”
“I’m a big fan of Usher,” Justin says. “He was my mentor and still is my mentor. Coming up under him was really special.”
“I really like Justin Timberlake. I think that he’s an amazing pop star. I’ve always respected the fact that he wasn’t afraid to just be himself,” Justin added.
"I guess Eminem is kind of a pop star. I know he’s a rapper, but I feel like he was a pop star too, a little bit, based on his brand."
“I think he’s really inventive. He had his own style.”
