In a recent one on one with Vibe Magazine, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas was asked if she felt that Usher’s Capri bearing performance during the 2010 NBA All-Star Game was an indication that he’d lost his sex appeal.
As one who’s really familiar with Usher and his sexiness, Chilli broke it down and stood up for her ex-boo:
I think every artist has that experience of ‘Oh! Why’d I put that on?’ at one point. I didn’t feel embarassed [for him]. The one thing I do believe in are his God-given talents. He has them and they haven’t gone away, I think it’s weird that people even look at it like ‘Can he get it back?’ I’m like ‘Okay, he didn’t lose it.’
I think as artists sometimes because we do different things and just try different things, it may appear you’ve lost your way, but it’s just trial and error. I think at the end of the day, he knows best more than anybody, what he’s capable of doing.
And so I think he’s going to be fine. (Source)
