Rumors have been circulating that Usher Raymond and his mother/manager Jonetta Patton are at odds once again. Word on the street is that Jonetta’s not happy about Usher’s current boo, Grace Miguel’s decision-making regarding his upcoming Raymond v. Raymond project. Sources say that Miguel is overstepping her boundaries by “meddling” in management affairs and meeting with industry execs regarding Usher. If true, there’s only Usher to blame. *sigh*
On a lighter note, you may recall the behind the scenes footage I posted from Usher’s photo shoot for his V.I.P. fragrance campaign a while back (CLICK HERE if you missed it) but the superstar singer also has a commercial on air right now. I’ve seen it several times but also caught it during the airing of the 2009 Soul Train Awards. The short version omits all of the juicy dialogue between Ursh and his onscreen love but the extended version is almost like a mini 007 flick.
Check out the extended version of Usher’s V.I.P. Commercial below:
Director: Pierre Morel.
