Usher Takes Entertainment Weekly

Usher Takes Entertainment Weekly

Usher opens up about fatherhood, his new album, ”Here I Stand,” and what it says about how far he’s come in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.

On the then 27-year-old in the midst of a life-changing existential dilemma: ”I was going out night to night, having a different woman in my bed every time I chose, and I began to wonder: Am I really being a playa or am I a whore?”

On going for the cougars: ”I really was dating for maturity because that’s what I thought I would get — a person that has some stability. She also has to be understanding, patient, kind, and supportive.”

On his mother missing his wedding: ‘My mother made a decision not to come to my wedding because she didn’t really agree with my decision (his choice of wife or his decision to fire his mother as manager). I don’t know why [she didn't come]. She’s never told me and I’ve never asked her. It hurt me very much not to see her there ’cause I would’ve liked for her to be there, not to mention that I paid so much money for her to be accommodated and her behind didn’t show up. [Laughs] But just as she’s made stands, so have I.”

    He married a ugly lady that looks like a man. Don’t she have about 4 kids and her ex-husband has custody of them. Their was something about her being convicted of welfare fraud. Just truely amazing if it’s all true thats somekind of love.

  • me gets it

    He married a woman who fulfills his sexual needs. She’s older, wiser and probably a cougar in bed. There is no need to look for more when you find the person who meets your needs

  • Danny

    He is such a DIVA…. Fan of him not so much

  • Truth

    Why do you people like to judge and cuss people out so horribly and for no valid reason? Atleast these people are successful and making money off of you! Just remember you get as good as you give and whatever comes around goes back around.
    Whatever, I love Usher’s music, his personal life is no business of mine.
