Hot Shots: Usher Goes Back To Basics

Fans of R&B veteran Usher will undoubtedly be saying ‘O.M.G.’ after getting a load of some snapshots he unveiled today.  The Grammy winning crooner, whose ‘Promise’ saw his name perched atop Billboard Hot Latin tracks this week, took to Twitter to introduce fans to the new/old him – losing the scruffy look he has rocked for quite some time now.

While Raymond did reveal he is “studying for a major movie role” (although he did not indicate if the look was in conjunction with the film), is the ‘My Way’ singer headed the wrong way with this look?

    I don’t like it. He looks better with facial hair at least a little bit. I hope he gets the role though.

    Well, he looks a lot better but he does look odd in the first, he has some serious bags under his eyes. I wish he would just cut that damn hair and get a nice low cut. He would look so much better. he should have kept the beard and cut his hair. I don’t mind a man with facial hair as long as he keeps it trim. *shrugs*

    I do think he has lost his s** appeal though. It doesn’t look like he is gonna age too well.

    Well, he always looks ugly to me, but this is scary, don’t lying to ourselves, this guy is not cute, some people are just ridiculous, they make comments like “beautiful” and “cute” because they know that he looks horrible and there will be people like me who find it horrifying. No hate but the truth hurts sometimes.

    Whatever. Usher sold out to corny Pop audiences, therefore I have no respect for him anyone. I don’t give a damn what he did with his facial hair.

    Sellout.

    In addition to shaving the beard, he should have also cut his hair to avoid the “fruity” insinuations. He looks the way he did when he premiered as a teen which is not the way his current audience remembers him. Unless this is for a movie role/audition or a return to and R&B sound, I think its unecessary as a “new look”. Perhaps its for attention.

    NO!He is undeniably getting older (which would be a great thing if his music was getting more mature too, btw).Well, I won’t judge his whole look based on one picture, but this picture is pretty horrible.Granted that his his abs and his looks have been the key element to his success since the beginning, he needs to be just a little more careful 😉 😛

    Anyway, I’ll be checking for his new material and I hope that he will spice things up a little bit this time around….

    I think he married that fat girl just to have kids.
    Check it out, Ricky Martin, Clay Aiken, and a few other “Gay” celebrities all had kids before the came “out”
    Usher needs to just address the fact that he is gay, nothing wrong with it, but I cant respect or support anyone who isn’t true to themselves!

    CHILL!I was talking about ‘Raymond Vs Raymond’ which was a lyrical step back compared to ‘Here I Stand’.And don’t even get me started about the abs, please.He has been marketing them to push his music since his first single.Just find ALL his single covers.I’m sure that he is half-naked on at leas 20% of them 😉
