Usher recently hit up NBC’s Today Show to chat with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. He discussed his new Fragrance and his inspiration behind it and also talked about rising star Justin Bieber.
When Hoda noticed a black bandage around the index finger on his right hand, she quickly questioned the singer about his injury. Usher diverted the attention off of his finger by simply explaining he’d been busy in the studio. He finally admitted he’d jammed & broken his finger but didn’t give any details.

Usher Raymond put in work on a recent episode of ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition, as the bus headed to Clarksville Tennessee to assist the Scott Family.
David Scott was killed in the line of duty while pursuing a robbery suspect, leaving his wife and three daughters to live on without him. His wife, Trina, now helps other survivors but while devoting her time to others, Trina’s home has deteriorated due to a termite infestation to such a degree that the foundation was about to give way.
Trina Scott founded the C.O.P.S. organization (Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc.) to help other families devastated by the loss of their loved ones in law enforcement. She became its president in 2003, in addition to working a full-time job to support her daughters.
Usher and Selena Gomez joined the crew of the ABC show and rebuilt the Scott home while the family was sent on a much needed break to Disneyland.
Usher said, “There were tears, hugs, crying, and screaming in October when he taped the segment of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

Trey Songz is keeping it pimpin with his hot remix of his hit “I Invented Sex,” featuring Usher and Keri Hilson. Usher sings about threesomes and “re-inventing” sex. My favorite line… “Trey invented sex but he ain’t teach you how to **t it!”
In addition to Usher singing about introducing you to the mile high club, Keri Hilson claims to re-invent sex by doing way more than missionary.
“I’m ’bout to reinvent sex. Keri got ‘em like, ‘Who’s next?’/ I’mma make it my duty to have you so woozy, you think I invented X…
Yuuuppp…. these three managed to make an already hot song explode!

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.

You see tons of celebrity photos on all the blogs everyday, but do you ever wonder who’s behind the camera? You may recognize photo service names like WireImage or Getty, but there’s one name in particular that is making waves all across the country on the hip-hop scene…. Johnny Nunez!
I’ve run into him quite a few times, but never really had a real conversation until recently. It’s funny how life has a way of connecting you with people. He’s a totally cool dude and is the man behind many of your favorite hip-hop celebrity photographs, sometimes capturing them in classic unconventional poses.
Check out a few of Johnny’s memorable shots below:
