Usher has since battled with his former spouse over custody of their two children, six-year-old Usher 'Cinco' Raymond V and five-year-old Naviyd Ely Raymond. In 2012, a judge awarded the singer primary custody of the two boys.

When asked about his best advice, Usher recounted a deeply meaningful encounter he had with James Brown, one of funk and soul music's biggest legends.

'"If you stay ready, you ain’t gonna get ready." James Brown told me that right before we performed together at the Grammys in 2005. 'I’ve never forgotten it, and I’m always telling people, "Well, James Brown once told me…"'
