Usher graces the August/September cover of Uptown Magazine’s 5th Anniversary “Style” issue looking marvelous as usual. Check out a few flix from the feature:
It was also recently announced that the owners of Uptown Magazine have purchased the now defunct VIBE Magazine. So keep an eye out for the new & improved VIBE coming soon. Usher’s upcoming “Monster” project is complete and expected to drop late this fall. I got a track called “Be” in my inbox a while ago and thought this would be the perfect post to share it with you. Take a listen:

Finally…someone listened to me! Tameka Foster Glover Raymond recently decided to prove me wrong and show that she is indeed smart enough to write a blog. Meka stepped into the shoes of those she most despises (i.e. the bloggers) and The Huffington Post gave her a forum to debate the history of dark skinned vs. light skinned African Americans. While the message in the post is pertinent, it gets totally lost from the messenger.
Reading magazines, social media sites, watching our music videos, and television shows feed our appetites for all things ‘beauty”. Rarely, however do I see depictions of grace and elegance in the form of dark complexioned women.
Tameka is such a sad figure these days and wants your sympathy in whatever way she can get it. Now it’s all WOE is me…love me cause I’m darker than everyone else… gimme a f*ckin break! Let’s not forget how Meka dissed fellow blogger Continue Reading…
Usher Raymond IV was at the Playboy Club in Vegas last night hosting a party for Vegas Magazine Men’s Issue. If you recall, Usher is featured in the magazine in his a photo spread promoting his upcoming project:

Robert Ector, an Atlanta photographer who’s also linked to one of my personal favs, Derek Blanks, hit to big leagues by working a magical photoshoot with Tameka Foster Glover Raymond. I know that I’ll be stopped in the streets of the “A” and accused of being biased if I don’t post these but truth be told, I was gonna post them anyway….I’ve just been busy!
Those of you who know me are well aware that I always give credit where credit is due and Rob….DUDE…You did this ish!! I’ve never seen such an astounding transformation in a photo. Tameka’s almost unrecognizable!

Ok…is it me or is Usher showing ‘fever’ in his cover shot for Vegas Magazine? The necklace, the v-neck…that look. *sigh* The July/August issue hits stands next week and Ush is the first male on the cover of mag in its entire six years in production (I guess that explains the pearls 😕 ). In the issue, Usher talks about his new fragrance Usher VIP (his third fragrance with Elizabeth Arden), recording sessions in Vegas, and his upcoming album and more. He even discusses how he plans on being back real lovemaking music for the masses:
“The sex in music, the good sex in music, the lovemaking in music, we’ve begun to depart from it. Right now it’s all about hitting it and quitting it. I think there are a ton of women out there who want to be made love to and want to have that song going that they really want to make love to.”
“In time I’m going to grow older, but I hope that I can be remembered for being a great father to my sons, a gentleman, a renaissance man.”
