Usher’s Next Target: Own Fans

Published: Wednesday 18th Jul 2007 by Sam
Amid the controversy surrounding Usher’s relationship with fiance Tameka Foster, the ‘Yeah’ singer isn’t sparing anyone against their union – including his own fans. Following the singer’s rant to his critics last week, the Grammy Award winner is now trying to shut down the #1 fansite dedicated to him: ‘UsherForever.com’ (one of our affiliates). NY Daily News is reporting that the singer’s lawyers have served the site owner, Erika Jackson, with papers ordering that the site close – due to Jackson’s open dislike for Foster.
It’s one thing ‘beefing’ the media, but isolating your own fans? That’s just plain dumb. It seems he hasn’t heard of something called ‘free speech’. With plans to drop an album in November, he’ll need to stop this stupidness quick, as everything surrounding him recently has been a PR disaster. If this relationship doesn’t last, it may just be curtains for Usher’s career.

What do you think about Usher’s latest actions?

    serves her damn right! they should shut that ish down! yes there is free speech but the last time i checked, fansites were not supposed to be dedicated to bashing! they are supposed to be dedicated to the artist! if she wanted to dish her opinion on the man’s personal life she should have started a blog! i don’t like his fiance either but a fansite is not the place to say that!

    I understand that a fansite is not for bashing but on the same hand his fans are speaking about a dislike, it just happens to be his manly a** fiance. He is becoming very unattractive and is going to loose a lot of fans being petty. I mean Beyonce never tried to shut a fan site down even with all the “ugly joe camel” remarks made about Jay. She getting money realizin an opinion is personal and not everyone agrees.

    Usher is an awesome singer, but he’s just plain stupid now. honestly. Shutting down someones’ hard work is unfair. Usher needs to grow up & stop complaining. Make music & keep yourself occupied.

    damn you just made usher look good, and beyonce look like a money hungry monster! i still say shut that ish down, we may not like her but that’s a personal choice whom a celeb dates/marries. and yes people are entitled to opinions, but like i said if she felt the need talk about the man’s fiance in such a disrespectful manner she should have started a damn blog! and on all the bee fansites i’ve been to, never have i seen the webmaster post about jay-z in a dispespectful manner. the fans do it, not the webmaster. focus on something else other than being negative’ she’s probably just obsessed with usher and wants him for herself! if you want to bash, create a blog!

    I really respect USHER as an Artist and a person.He is concerned about people opinions of his current love of his life. Everything is not everyone’s buisness.We as people think that because we buy his music that we are entitled to his personal information.People,fans etc are like the fricken FBI!!How he protects his woman from you vulturs is what a man does for his woman!Duh!We can contribute to his records sells,And negative portrays of him but let him do the right thing.Nooo!!!All we want is blood and rumors.He was more liked when rumors were he was cheating on Chilly. Now hes doing the right thing by getting married and starting a family and all he gets is boos. Leave the mans private life or girlfriends alone.God give the man a break i men he is an incredible performer and artist.Aan after all that he is human.

    I can understand Usher being concerned about what people have to say about his fiance but this is overboard. People have the right to state their opinions. That was a fansite that had thousands of people visiting to get what people get from fansites now he wants to shut it down. People can go to any website and hear negative talk about Tameka but only on that site would you get that, along with a whole bunch of positive things about Usher. Not a good business move and kinda petty to me. The more he reacts to this the more it is going to be the topic of discussion. All of this the open letter and shutting down a fansite is not going to change peoples perception of this woman. He is a celebrity people love talking ish about celebrity’s when they’re not talking he should worry!
