For the first time in the longest, I felt everyone did great. One of the standouts, for me, was Usher & Mary’s performance. With the way Usher was nailing the James Brown choreography I was left thinking ‘Justin who?’. Jennifer Hudson was also a standout; it was good seeing her sing something different. She really has a great stage presence too. I was pleasantly surprised with J. Lo’s performance – she is far from a great vocalist, but her live singing has improved a lot.
Stars from both the fashion and music industries were out in full force yesterday for the 2007 Fashion Rocks concert. The event, which took place in New York City, saw performances from Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Usher and Jennifer Lopez. Visitors from the US can catch the show when it airs, tonight at 9pm ET/PT on CBS.
As some of you may already know, Usher married his controversial girlfriend Tameka Foster in a star-studded ceremony in Atlanta this past weekend. Attendees included Jermaine Dupri and Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Benny Medina. Usher’s mother, Jonetta Patton – who is reported to disapprove of the union – was not present; although she did attend the couple’s civil ceremony last month. Check out more pics of the wedding below:
Though Usher needs to fix up with the way he has been treating his fans as of late, I am kinda happy for him. Goldigger, b*tch or whatever, Tameka seems to be the ‘one’ he’s fallen for. So congratulations to them both.
With their September 11th chart battle rapidly approaching, both 50 Cent and Kanye West appear on the cover of October’s issue of Rolling Stone magazine. Some say it’s all a publicity stunt to allow better sales for both. Whatever the case, there’s no doubt that this has snowballed into what will undeniably be one of the biggest days on the music calender. So…
Whose album will you buy come September 11th: 50 or Kanye?
R&B star Usher appeared on the Season 5 premiere of the Ellen Degeneres show yesterday (September 4th). The ‘Yeah’ singer discussed a number of things including his controversial marriage to Tameka Raymond (which is how he introduced her) and their child – due toward the end of the year. He also plugged his new fragrance line ‘Usher He/She’.
He really seems to have found ‘the one’ in Tameka and I can’t hate on him for that. Though, with all the media scrutiny and his momma’s disapproval, it’ll be interesting to see how long this lasts. On a side note, I’m kinda surprised he didn’t plug his upcoming album – it is still slated for a November release, right?
A host of stars came out to celebrate with Jermaine Dupri at the opening of his new nightclub, Studio 72, in Atlanta last night. Celebs in attendance included Usher and wife Tameka Foster, Nelly, Monica and T-Boz. As expected Dupri’s girlfriend, Janet Jackson (who was looking on-point), accompanied the hit-maker to the event.
This one has been generating a buzz on the net as of late. Kel Mitchell, of ‘Keanan and Kel‘ fame, stars in this hilarious spoof of R. Kelly and Usher’s ‘Same Girl’. I don’t usually find Kel funny, but I can’t deny that this had me cracking up. Check it out.
It has been reportedthat the on-off (and then on again) wedding between Usher and fiancee Tameka Foster took place this past Friday in the singer’s lawyer’s office. Usher’s mother Jonetta Patton – who is said to be strongly against the couple’s union – attended the ‘quiet’ ceremony. The, somewhat, controversial couple were set to exchange vows last week, however the wedding was called off with no reason given.
Now that Tameka is a permanent fixture in Usher’s life, it’ll be interesting to see how things Pan out with his career, as he’s rubbed a lot of people the wrong way in the name of this relationship.
In a statement to the Associated Press today (July 28th), Usher’s publicist announced the singer’s marriage to fiance Tameka Foster has been cancelled. No reason was cited for the cancellation of the ceremony -which was set to take place today – however the statement plead for the privacy of the pair during this time. The couple’s first child is due in the fall.
Though the circumstances surrounding the cancellation are unknown, one has to wonder if Usher succumbed to the pressure and pulled the plug. With the way Usher’s been on a war path to defend Tameka, I’m kinda surprised by this all. This whole situation gets weirder by the minute…
