Hot Shots: Usher Goes Back To Basics

Published: Sunday 30th Oct 2011 by Rashad

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?

    GORGEOUS!

  5. Nicole October 30, 2011

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

  6. rihluv October 30, 2011

    omg he looks sooo q**** !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! someone just flew out the closet!

  7. Jordan October 30, 2011

    He looks like he did when he came out with his first album with Diddy.

  8. NATALIE THE NAVY GIRL October 30, 2011

    He looks a bit fruity in those pics. Lol.

  9. VA STAND UP!! October 30, 2011

    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.

    who is that old shaved head woman??

    no seriously he looks like an old gay queen.he needs to rid himself of that hair atop his head and moisturize.

  12. JENNY JONES!! October 30, 2011

    HE SHOULD’VE CLEANED UP THE BEARD AND GOT A HAIRCUT. THAT HEAD STILL LOOKS A MESS. HE WASN’T THAT CUTE TO START WITH AND HE HAS LOST WHAT S*** SWAG HE HAD. KARMA’S A B*TCH!!!……..JENNY JONES!!!1

  13. RATEDXx(delusional is a hell of a drug) October 30, 2011

    Usher never did anything for me..i never saw him as s*** or anything….

    hes voice annoys me..

    his face annoys me….

    but he is packing though…lol

    nah hes still annoying

  14. Onyx October 30, 2011

    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.

  15. D-MONEY October 30, 2011

  16. SNAFU October 30, 2011

  17. I’ma have to send her back to her maker October 30, 2011

    fat ass nose. LOL. I never found him attractive tho. Thanks for posting this to make sure I wasn’t missing anything.

  18. Ren October 30, 2011

    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.

    What the hell kind of black man makes dance pop?

  19. HALF AMAZIN October 31, 2011

    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.

  20. TY October 31, 2011

    Wow is he aging!! Hims sans facial hair…not a good luck!! I know someone that looks JUST like him..almost f****** identical..would post the pic, but he’d be pissed. ..Anyways, yes, he is VERY gay, smh!!

  29. Tehara October 31, 2011

    He should’ve shave the hair instead … I like men when they’re scruffy , but the hair has to go .

  30. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) October 31, 2011

    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….

  31. wintz October 31, 2011

    Smh sad thing to witness men going through mid-life crisis… the clean shaved face only shows up his wrinkles. He actually looks older now.

  32. Save The F*****’ Muzik!¡™ October 31, 2011

  33. tjtre October 31, 2011

  34. ree October 31, 2011

  35. sbrom October 31, 2011

    and i can’t imagine u just typed the whole “maturity” thing ! u clearly don’t have his discography to judge properly !!

  37. Robier October 31, 2011

    Noooooooooooo

  38. NOPES October 31, 2011

    That is one ugly (RICH) m***********!
    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!

  39. Hypnotized! October 31, 2011

    I thought he looked cute!

  40. caramel215 October 31, 2011

    I’m happy he cut that wolf off but you can also tell he’s aging. Now cut the top off and then maybe you’ll look cute maybe :/

  41. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) October 31, 2011

    @POP
    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 😉

  42. CDarayl October 31, 2011

    Wow he looks freakishly young! H needs to bring the beard back, quick! SpreadDaWord.com

  43. chile November 2, 2011
