Justin Bieber was dissed by the Grammys? Mentor Usher was unaware

justin-bieber-usher-may-2012-gi.jpgThe Bieberbots or Beliebers may have been in a tizzy that Justin Bieber was not at The Grammys, but the man who gave him his break was unaware of the commotion.

While Usher says he thought it was "crazy" that nomination-less Bieber was not invited, he tells Zap2it that he did not know about the slight.

"For whatever reason that he wasn't, I think that would be crazy to not be invited," Usher says. "If he was not invited, he wouldn't be the first," Usher says.

Plus, he adds that maybe he was invited and had "other priorities at the same time." Although this seems unlikely since Biebs attempted to counter-program the Grammys with a livestream for his fans.

"I don't know you could assume that was strategic, to make a statement," Usher says, before admitting,"I don't know."

Usher did not attend this year's awards either due to a function at his son's school, but he did take the stage perform the night before at Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party.
