Usher Slammed For Allegedly Sending T-Pain Into a ‘4-Year Depression’ For Criticizing His Use of Autotune

‘Burn’ singer Usher continues to catch heat on social media after his fellow GRAMMY-winning hitmaker T-Pain took to press to reveal a critical encounter between them from the past.

The revelation sent Twitter into an uproar, with many demanding an apology from Ush for his reported mistreatment of the ‘Buy You a Drank’ singer-rapper.

Details inside:

As seen in the clip above (found on Netflix’s ‘This Is Pop’), T-Pain (born Faheem Najm) recounts an incident with Usher from 2013 where he alleges the now-42-year-old superstar heavily criticized him for using autotune – going as far as to say he ‘f*cked up music for real singers.’

“I didn’t understand. Usher was my friend… Did I f*ck up music?,” Najm reflects. “And that is the very moment—and I don’t think I realized this for a long time—that’s the very moment that started a four-year depression for me.”

It didn’t take long for the clip to gain steam on socials, leading a number of commenters to weigh in and offer their own criticisms to Usher (who – as of time reported – has not responded to the hoopla).

See highlights below:


The hoopla surfaces just a week after T-Pain rode headlines for saying Nicki Minaj left him ‘heartbroken’ after turning down a collaboration request.  Although she quickly apologized, Minaj admitted she did not remember the incident.

    Black Twitter at it again, 🤦🏾‍♂️❗And it’s the disregarding what T-Pain said and flipping it to fit the narrative so you could get likes on Twitter for me! I’m tired of social media.

    Funny how Tpain can actually SANG but, made a creative/stylistic decision to use autotune which inspired other artists, including usher to follow suit. Usher’s engineers have used autotune or at least melodyne on his vocals to sit well with the times. How ironic that he had this to say. Does this mean his music is f***** up as well?
