Usher didn't just get a baby in 2008; he got a Bieber! That October, he signed 14-year-old Justin Bieber to a record deal and began mentoring the young singer. The two struck up a very public bromance: Usher appeared on Justin's 2009 debut "My World" and was very involved in promoting the young star. But it wasn't all about the Biebs in 2008. Usher released his fifth studio album, "Here I Stand," in May 2008.
