Usher Raymond IV plays “top gun” on the October/November 2010 cover of VIBE Magazine. Doesn’t he look all sexy & manly? A far stretch from those crop pants and shoulder pads he rocked a few days ago…
Vibe reporter Clover Hope gets Usher to discuss his vision behind Raymond vs. Raymond and surprisingly gets him to open up about divorcing Tameka Foster Glover Raymond.
Check out what Usher has to say in the recent issue of VIBE below:
On Raymond V Raymond being a career rebound
“I don’t think it was a rebound at all. Some people in my organization felt like it was a rebound, but for me it was business as usual. Were there hard times in the process? Absolutely. I think it was the first time that doubt was ever amongst the opinions. Like, Can he do it again? Is it possible that this can happen? When you have 15 years of a legacy built, it shouldn’t be questionable with one album.”
On how long he was thinking about divorcing Tameka
“During our disagreements, that’s when I really began to contemplate marriage and if this is someone whom I’m compatible with. Anytime we had a disagreement or an argument, I began to contemplate: Wow, is this really gonna work out? I’m going through hell right now, given the fact that people have an opinion about our relationship. I can’t be unhappy at home and fighting the wars or the opinions outside… ‘You should’ve handled things this way,’ ‘I wish you would’ve said this,’ ‘You’re handling me wrong,’ ‘I don’t like the way I’m feeling about this’—it could be anything, man.” (Source)
He shoulda just said ‘no comment”….
