Usher is gearing up for another album release and has just unveiled new single and video for “Good Kisser.”
We’re not quite sure how we feel about the new single and video but some fans are already expressing their disappointment over the new song. Check out the new single and video below and share your thoughts.
Well, isn’t this the funniest thing! During a Ustream of an event Kevin Hart hosted Diddy let it slip that he and Usher use to sleep in the same bed. Diddy had a little help, of course, in the form of a good old fashion honest juice called alcohol! Hilarious!
Diddy says to Kevin Hart, “Come over here, don’t sit on the bed or nothing – no homo, just, don’t get close to the bed – don’t get close. Don’t get close, but it’s just like, we wanna thank you for hosting the thing, man. It’s been a pleasure, ya didn’t have to do it, and you did it.”
Kevin Hart responds, “No, I definitely didn’t have to do it…I definitely didn’t have to. Um…first and foremost, I’m not getting in the bed… Um shouts out to him, and what he did…”
Usher walks in, then Diddy says: “That’s my brother right here, from day one we used to wake up, and — I mean, damn, pause. But, like check this out…”
Kevin Hart starts laughing, from apparent surprise…This as Puff comes back from his pause, rambling about “wrestling” with Usher:
We told you it was coming, Usher and Shakira will replace Cee-Lo and Christina Aguilera as co-host of ‘The Voice’ next season. Although Cee-Lo will return the following season Aguilera reveales recently that she will not. Check out the new promo featuring new hosts Usher and Shakira.
Some very good news for Usher today, too bad it cost Tameka Raymond primary custody of her two youngest sons.
The R&B crooner was awarded primary custody earlier today by an Atlanta judge.
In the last several weeks, the media has documented the bitter custody battle between the two ex-spouses. The suit, brought on by Usher, was an even bigger blow when Tameka lost one of her elder sons in a jet ski accident back in July. Following 11 year old Kile Glover’s accident, which left him brain dead and resulting in his death, the custody battle resumed.
Many were left wondering, in the midst of the tragic events, why couldn’t these two reach an agreement and settle their differences. Unfortunately they were too busy making accusations of what the other had done to cause conflict.
But today’s ruling has decided the fate of the exes. Their sons will be in the primary care of their father.
Last month Usher’s estranged ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, lost 11 year old son, Kile Glover in an unfortunate ski accident.
Although early reports suggested Usher rushed to her aid in her time of need it seems the two are back at odds. Prior to Kile’s tragic death, Usher and Tameka were caught up in a bitter custody battle over their two young sons.
Tameka has just released an exclusive statement via Ebony on just how she’s feeling over the whole ordeal.
To begin, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the countless number of people who opened their hearts, extended their prayers, well-wishes and remained hopeful for my son Kile during the last weeks of his life. I truly believe that he has always been an Angel from birth and the world was just too small to contain a spirit so vast.
How Tragic! Usher‘s step-son, Kyle Glover, with estranged wife Tameka Raymond has died. The 11 year old succumbed to brain injuries following a jet ski accident exactly two weeks ago today. Although initially placed on life support in hopes he would make a full recovery, his mother made the very difficult decision to take him off life support following doctors orders he was brain dead and there would be no revising him. He died Saturday morning in an Atlanta hospital.
Despite the many negative comments and jokes made about Tameka Raymond these last few years, no mother should have to bury her child.
Usher‘s newest album ‘Looking 4 Myself’ was just released on June 8th. Didn’t know? Not to worry, not many people did either. It seems his ongoing custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Raymond and a stalker who believes their married, people forgot about the music. Although the album debuted #1, it sold a mere 128,000 units in its first week. Even with great songs like “Climax”, “Scream” and “Let Me See”, people have forgotten just why Usher is one of today’s hottest male artists. This is why we’ve chosen him as our throwback Friday artist.
Let’s go back to one of the more pivotal moments in his career. The year was 2001 and the song was “U Got It Bad”.
This was (still is) such a good song!
*Tid Bit:* The single is from Usher’s 2001 album 8701. It reached number 1 on the United States Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, and reached the top 5 in the United Kingdom and Australia. It was also listed at #99 on the Billboard: All-Time Hot 100 Top Songs and named the 15th most successful song from 2000 to 2009, on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs of the Decade.
