Usher: 'my kids see me as a superhero'

Usher has said that his kids see him as a 'superhero'.

The singer told TV3: 'My kids see me as a superhero, I'm like superdad to my kids.

'If I'm not with them every day we still see each other, we pray before dinner and we talk before bedtime.'

He also said about mentoring Justin Bieber: 'I consider myself a friend and a father figure to him, someone who he can confide in and also someone who will lead him in the right direction.

'He's very young, this is only one year of success and I don't think he's going to have the type of career that'll be short.

'Everything I've taught him has been from the shoulders of the people I've stood on in the past like Michael Jackson.'
