    Usher giving Justin Bieber advice on how to handle his breaking voice, which is a side effect of adolescence, which the 16-year-old pop star is currently going through. The Bieb is struggling with puberty, which is taking its toll on his vocal cords and he has enlisted the help of a top singing coach to keep his performances note-perfect. Something tells me, though, that the teenage girls who scream their faces off for The Bieb aren't really paying that much attention to his vocals being pitch-perfect.

    Bieber has also admitted that he is counting on his music mentor Usher, who began singing professionally at the age of 11, to guide him through the trying time. Bieber was reported as saying, "Everyone's voice changes. Puberty is a natural thing. I have the best vocal coach in the world and we're working on my voice and doing what I need to do. It's not like as soon as you hit puberty you stop singing. Usher is the best mentor in the world and he survived puberty. He tells me what to do, what not to do."

    Will The Bieb's career withstand the pressures of pubescence?
