Usher & Baby Usher V Cover Essence
Usher and Usher V are gracing the cover and pages of the August '08 issue of Essence magazine. He's doing his usual and dispelling rumors about firing his mom and about his relationship with Tameka. Yada yada. That baby is mad cute though. Here's some excerpts to wet your whistle: On Fatherhood: “He’s gonna admire me, he’s gonna look up to me. He’s gonna say, ‘I wanna be’ or he should say - ‘I wanna be like my father.” His Marriage: “They think that it was forced. I’ve heard a lot of comments like, “Oh, she trapped him.” “He got a baby by her, and then she’s married and she’s set for life.” “No. She wasn’t pregnant when I asked her to marry me. There’s some sort of huge conspiracy over this, the fact that I made these choices in my life. No I grew older. As a man, I have to take responsibility and take a hold of my life. I’m accountable for what happens to my life now.” UPDATE: You can read part of his interview (conducted by Hill Harper) at Essence.com. And here's a couple more pics:
Cute. This issue hits news stands on July 11th.
