Usher turns 32 today and it isn't only fans of this hip hop artist who should send him their birthday wishes.

Anyone afflicted with a case of Bieber Fever must give thanks to this singer/producer for discovering the boy, the myth and the legend that is Justin Bieber.

It's been difficult a 18 months for Usher, as he divorced controversial wife Tameka Foster and fought of rumors of infidelity. But the abs of steel and the hit singles remained throughout these tough times and in the man's honor, we say "OMG" to this photo montage:

Keys and husband Swizz Beatz founded the charity. Says the former:

“With the launch of our BUY LIFE campaign, I am confident less people will needlessly have to die because of lack of proper care which means more children will still have parents to raise them and guide them. I’m never more inspired, then when I’m doing this!”

Justin Bieber fans should give thanks everyday to Usher. That hip hop artist discovered the 16-year old and signed him a record deal. The rest, of course, is adorable, chart-topping history.

So, who does Usher thank for the presence of Bieber in his life? That's easy: The Man Upstairs.

Usher thanks God for Justin Bieber. Literally!

"I feel as if God specifically placed [Bieber] in front of me, because of how I started," Usher told USA Today this week. "I understood the hardships of trying to find yourself in this industry at that age, and I wanted him to have an instant, organic connection to his fans. And he's done that."

Has he ever! A new report states that Justin and his followers are responsibility for a whopping 3% of all server use on Twitter. That's incredible.

Over the last couple of years, Usher has had a few hits ("OMG," the discovery of Justin Bieber) and one noticeable miss: Tameka Foster.

Following a couple years and a couple sons together, she and the artist got divorced last summer. Asked about the relationship, Usher tells the latest issue of People: "I love her as the mother of my children... we're two different people and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100 percent."

Friends and Artists

He then touched on a few other topics, as the interview is excerpted below:

On raising his sons:
"Usher [V] is always in everything. He's an instigator. He's the one who leads his brother astray. I was like that when I was his age... if one gets in trouble, the other one does, too. They both have a lot of energy. They can wear me out."

Get ready for ... wait for it ... the Chrusher Tour.

That's our name for it, not theirs, but they're welcome to it for a small royalty. Have your peeps call our peeps, fellas, or contact us via Facebook or Twitter.

In any event, Usher and Chris Brown are apparently hitting the road together. Mutual producer Bryan-Michael Cox recorded a segment for Jermaine Dupri’s Living The Life Youtube show and made the announcement personally.

Does that sound like a tandem you'd pay to see?

Chris Brown and Usher will be touring together.

Usher has been enjoying a solid year with the hit song "OMG" and as the mentor of the cultural phenom that is Justin Bieber. Not a bad guy to be associated with.

As for his touring partner, we haven't heard much from Chris since his fake BET Awards tears a few months back. Hopefully he's doing well, whatever he's up to.

Follow the jump for the aforementioned tour announcement ...

Note to 14-year old girls around the country: you think you're a big Justin Bieber fan? Ha!

Look at what Usher has to say about this singer to In Touch Weekly:

“Justin Bieber is someone I’m not just endorsing as a talent, he’s someone I’m nurturing as an artist. He’s my artist. He’s an incredible talent. He’s a young man who I think represents all of what’s needed in this time to be an artist and be successful.

"You look at the different genres of music now, and it’s either electric dance or acoustic sound - you’ve got the Jonas Brothers, and you’ve got Lady Gaga. I think that Justin’s able to do all of it — because he plays piano, he plays guitar, he plays drums, he can dance - so a lot of it is easy to pick when I introduce a different movement to him.”

As for Usher, the man who signed him and who is featured in his "Somebody to Love" music video, Justin said:

"I'm very blessed to have him, because he's been through it all - he basically started at my age. I have this ability to ask him questions. He told me to stay humble and stay grounded, which is very important.”

Wednesday night's American Idol not only featured the elimination of Didi Benami, but a performance from Usher and a cameo by Justin Bieber himself.

Bieber stopped by to support his mentor Usher, who also coached the Idol aspirants this week, but also to tape his upcoming "Idol Gives Back" segment.

Naturally, this being Justin Bieber, he caused flat-out pandemonium.

After he was done, a 'tween fan rushed the stage, prompting security to intervene with a secure bear hug before she could present herself to J-Biebs.

Speaking of crazed fans, more than a few 13-year-old girls were so excited when Bieber came out to tape "Idol Gives Back" that they started crying.

Leave it to protege Bieber to upstage mentor Usher ...

Usher on Idol

OMG: Usher performs on American Idol.

After a lengthy process of getting him to the point where he could actually perform without the stage being ambushed, things went according to plan.

Finally, Justin Bieber, who now boasts the #1 album in the U.S. as well as some amazing hair, took to the stage and performed "U Smile and "Baby."

When this performance actually airs on the Fox show's annual "Idol Gives Back" special, we strongly suggest you find a hat and hold the f*%k onto it.

For now, follow the jump to see him introduce his homeboy mentor Usher, who proceeded to rock the house, OMG style, with special guest will.i.am ...

One is a multi-platinum artist with an extremely successful R&B career. The other runs a gym on Staten Island and has no business at the Grammys whatsoever.

Usher and Mike Sorrentino (a.k.a. The Situation from Jersey Shore) may have little in common, but they both showed up on the red carpet Sunday night in L.A.

That's good enough for a THG Grammy fashion face-off!

Looking dapper as always, Ush dressed to the nines and showcased that baby face we've grown to love. The Situation ... well, he did what The Situation does.

Who looked hotter last night? That's for you to decide ...

Looks like the haters may have been right all along.

According to reports, Usher recently called the police on his soon-to-be ex-wife, accusing Tameka Foster of sneaking onto his property and keying his car.

Tameka Foster and Usher

Law enforcement sources say that when officers arrived at the baby-faced star's crib, Tameka (who now goes by Tameka Raymond) was nowhere in sight.

Police later interviewed both Tameka and Usher, but decided there was no evidence or witnesses to substantiate Usher's claim that she scratched his ride.

But the drama didn't end there.

Tusher in happier days.

Police sources say Usher called the cops on Tameka again several days later, complaining that Tameka again got onto his property and wouldn't leave.

By the time cops arrived that time, Tameka took off.

Usher filed for divorce back in June ... but it hasn't been finalized just yet. They have two kids, Usher Raymond V, 21 months; and Naviyd, 9 months.

He has since been linked to Grace Miguel.
