What Is This...Usher Day Or Something?

​ ​ ​ ​
Here's Ursh's new album cover for Here I Stand:
amazon.com
UPDATE: Thanks to YBF reader Tamika for pointing out the license plate in the cover pic is a shoutout to Usher's son Usher V-Cinco 1126--Usher V's birthday is November 26th. Sweet. Interesting. The album is still set to drop May 27th. He and his wife Tameka were also spotted out having lunch on Tuesday at Crustacean restaurant in Beverly Hills: Photogs say Ursh told them he "was the luckiest man in the world" having married Tameka. Let's all say it together: Awwwww. Now cue the violins. More pics of the couple when you read the rest... Fun times with Urshmeka.

[quote comment="72385"][quote comment="72332"]I really love this couple. Usher and Tameka got the whole 'Black love is beautiful" thing on lock. Usher is more mature than some Brothas I know twice his age...I respect him for choosing the right woman for him. He didn't cave to the pressure of his mother, media, fans etc. Tameka marry each of her children's father and both of those Brothas are respectable, responsible and ambitious.

I love the way Tameka let it all hang out in Essence....Sistah that takes courage.. Go Tameka!![/quote] I never seen him so miserable as he is lately. this pic he looks happy and im suure it was a PR thats why he chose to eat outside and was ok being photographed and even got tameeka to put on that fake crusty smile. theres so many black beautiful woman he can choose from why choose her making every other celeb thank the lucky stars they married a white G. mothers know best and his mother wasnt lying. HE NEEDS TO SWALLOW HIS PRIDE TELL HIS MOMMA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD WE WERE RIGHT AND SHE WAS THE WORSE THING THAT EVER HAPPENED AND THAN GET BACK TO REAL USHER. OR DUMP HER ASS AND BETTER YET BRING OUT CONFESSIONS 2 AND HOPEFULLY HE'LL ADMIT HE LEFT HER FOR A MAN OR SOMETHING OR SAY SHE IS A MAN AND HE DOESNT WANNA DO THAT NO MORE. anything he lost so many fans some of us didnt love him for his music but for his looks and status. if he was gonna get married why couldnt it be for sexy woman... PROBABLY TAMEEKA WAS HIS STYLIST FOR SO LONG SHE KNOWS HIS SECRETS AND SHE PROBABLY SAID IF YOU DONT MARRY ME IMA TELL THE WORLD ABOUT YOUR AFFAIR WITH SISQO LOL[/quote] This site is to fin funny.. guess when your bored at work YBF is the shit.

@ Lotus “maybe Usher is

@ Lotus “maybe Usher is different in that he didn’t need to do the industry expected, i.e. find a video “chick” look-alike, and found a woman he connected with on a higher level.” "She’s (Tameka) not “ugly” like some people are saying and just looks like a regular black woman that people wouldn’t have a negative comment about if she wasn’t with Usher. Marriage isn’t about getting the “hottest chick in the game”, it’s about finding someone you can have a life and family with, who may not be perfect but they’re perfect for you. Good luck to the couple! ------------------------------------------- AMEN to that!!! I couldnt have said it better myself. Once most men and women look past the glitz & glamour (at the ripe age of 45), they will be stuck with the wrong decisions they made in life. Like "Why did I have a baby by that man, knowing he had a wife" or "My mama told me she was a golddigger but I couldnt see past the long silky hair and DD tities. Some people will never learn. SMH

Too me, her age doesn't

Too me, her age doesn't matter or the fact that she's a dark black woman. We all know black women look 25 well into their 50's. BUT she actually LOOKS old, that's what's so upsetting. And dark skin (contrary to popular belief) IS beautiful. So her skin is gorgeous BUT her face just isn't. There are numerous dark skinned black women her age that are drop dead gorgeous/stunning (Angela Basset, Naomi Campbell,Kenya Moore,etc.), she's just not one of them unfortunatly.

We should see more black couple out there showing what it means to be unified....shotgun/crazy/controlling and all. The other interesting side about this is that Usher is still boyish in some sense. He needs a momma type and tameka is just the person. He grew up in the music world and isn't necessarily the real world.

People need to stop down rating Usher and Tameka's marriage! Usher picked someone that he felt was for him! No Tameka isn't the best looking thing but she's still not ugly. You didn't have to marry Tameka nor do you have to live with her so why is there so much negativity? I'm happy that usher did the exact opposite of what was expected of him which was to marry someone that made him happy and someone he felt he could build a future with instead of someone that would look good on his arm walking down the red carpet! Its rare for celebrity men to find someone that really cares about them and that is not out for their money or superficial things! Im happy for them and they look happy and I really hope they make it to show all the jealous haters that they can't stop their show!

So because she is

So because she is dark-skinned she is a "good, black woman"? What the hell is that? Self-hatred comes in MANY forms and it is a SHAME that we are still judging blackness by shades. Hell, *I* and a DAMN good, smart black woman and I am not dark... oh, but then, I guess that means- to some- that I am not real. Please! Thank goodness my dark mother (lik Tameka) and light father taught me better. Good on Usher is he is happy, but if she is as controlling as the rumors say, she will not keep him long. I hope God makes a way for them and that she makes him a better man. Bless!
Caramel's picture

Hellllllllllllllllllllllooooo

Hellllllllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooo PEOPLE! Have some of you been keeping up with this whole debacle that is Tameka??!! The reason I am not feeling her has NOTHING TO DO WITH HER LOOKS! As far as I'm concerned, the blacker the better. However, we are talking about a woman who: A) is an EX-CON with some drug priors thrown in for good measure. B) cheated on her previous husband to see Usher in the first place- they were not divorced before she started to "date". How u start a relationship is how u'll end it. C) I don't give a damn what anyone says, most times momma does know best. Even Ms. Johnetta couldn't co-sign this pairing and if anyone wanted Usher to be happy it would be her. And I don't buy the " oh she just didn't want to let go of her son" arguement cause I damn sure did not hear one word of protest when he was with Chilli. Get it together Meka!

Usher is happy and has a family of four. what yall got?? how many of you women even have a ring on your finger? or a family?? be happy for them they found love. If usher was not with Tameeka he would not be picking up yall broke behinds. He has a woman that built her career from the ground up take notes!!!!

You know, there is just no

You know, there is just no pleasing some people. With the stats being stacked against us for marrying- at all, let alone each other- we complain? Being a wife is not about being young, fly, and friendly to strangers. That is a bonus for those of us watching. It's about whatever commitment they've given to each other, whether it's to hide gay rumors (truths?)or just love one's stretch marks. And since when did Usher become SUCH a hot commodity that we even cared who he was with? He ha[d] sex appeal, I admit, but we will always be twelve in my mind ("Can U Git Wit It? It's LIKE THAT! [Ow!])and therefore I can only take so seriously what he prefers in a grown woman. That said, I like this couple. You know why? Because they are MARRIED. To EACH OTHER. To say nothing of the fact they are both black, which should make us all proud, they are at least trying to live right. And I will always prefer a woman with an up-to-date hairdo to a woman who hangs her fame on 1992 baby hairs and a wavy half-up, half down pony tail. IN THEIR FORTIES. That's right, Rozonda, I mean your tired self.

Why does he need to be with

Why does he need to be with some size 2 18-year old "hot chick" for us to be okay with his marriage? Many men marry women older than them. I find it refreshing that even though he has "beautiful" women throwing themselves at him, he chose to look within and be with someone who could be his friend and lover. How 'bout we lay off on the shallowness? I wish them many years of marital bliss, just like I hope people do for me.

Absolutely! He had his pick

Absolutely! He had his pick of any woman he wanted and he chose her. That shows that she had something special about her. There's someone for everyone. Usher found love in a "black woman" who looks like she could be the girl next door. I applaud that... and the fact that he doesn't hide his love and adoration for her is also beautiful. It's black love yall! Let's love it.

Sorry to all the negative

Sorry to all the negative people but I'm going to have to say I like this couple. My fiance made a comment about them that I think is true - he was like, "maybe Usher is different in that he didn't need to do the industry expected, i.e. find a video "chick" look-alike, and found a woman he connected with on a higher level." I'm not saying Tameka's the hottest woman on the block but honestly she's not "ugly" like some people are saying and just looks like a regular black woman that people wouldn't have a negative comment about if she wasn't with Usher. We don't know what emotional/spiritual completion she may provide for Usher that is making him feel whole and happy. Marriage isn't about getting the "hottest chick in the game", it's about finding someone you can have a life and family with, who may not be perfect but they're perfect for you. Some of the "younguns" on this site may not understand that yet - hey it took me until now - but you'll get it one day. Good luck to the couple!

I really love this couple.

I really love this couple. Usher and Tameka got the whole 'Black love is beautiful" thing on lock. Usher is more mature than some Brothas I know twice his age...I respect him for choosing the right woman for him. He didn't cave to the pressure of his mother, media, fans etc. Tameka marry each of her children's father and both of those Brothas are respectable, responsible and ambitious. While she created a career for herself...Plus, Usher and Tameka started their relationship the right way as friends. They do look HAPPY... I love the way Tameka let it all hang out in Essence....Sistah that takes courage.. Go Tameka!!
