Usher appeared on MTV's TRL show today. Just after passing out about a hundred CDs to the studio audience (which most likely counts toward his overall CD sales), Usher went into a rant about people talking about his wife (again).

This is sooo tiring and bizarre. Does Usher have a PR company? This is the time to promote his new album which is about to do horrible numbers, in part, because of this obsession he has with people talking about his wife.

Usher acts like he's brand new to the music biz. He's lost most of his fan base with his unpredictable bitch-like behavior.

It's not a good look for a male entertainer to continuously show his feminine side unless he's on the verge of coming out. We already know his wife wears the pants in the relationship. Usher should make an effort to hold on to the last shred of dignity that he has left.

    Funny clip. He took his mic and went off. He said his wife is not 40. Well I am that makes me not 43. Notice he said "I am a stepfather and a father to cinco. JD's words were a man should take care of a woman. Hope he is not talking financially being woman do have their own money whethr they make it themselves or get it in the divorce. lol. Men should know how to treat their woman. A gold digger is always going to have material things.

  • bobblekins

    Usher spoke the truth. If it's being bitchass to stand up for your woman,to marry the woman you love, and to be public about it, then something is terribly wrong. I'm buying his cd BECAUSE of what he said. He's a REAL man. A punk wouldn't have the balls to say what he did. And there's all kinda ways to 'take care of a woman'. Good for him. Tameka is lucky. I hope she does him right. Go Ush!

  • bklynchick

    Usher needs to stop while he cans!! I still love him but I am so so so so so tired of him and this Maneka stuff!! In the words of Lupe "If you are what you say you are a super star" you are in the spotlight this is what comes with it. Man up and get with the program damn!!

  • bklynchick

    I meant can

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    Usher acts like he's completely under Tameka's control. He has emotional issues and she has him convinced that SHE'S the only one who understands him.

  • Liyah74

    This is more evidence that his marriage is on the rocks. Why don't you just call it a day Usher. Why do you continue to defend your marriage to the world. I really don't give a flying flip. Your wife is ugly and she did encourage you to terminate your mother as a manager. Negro sit down!!!!!

  • bklynchick

    Corret Sandra Rose what does they do rehearse what comments he is going to say in fron of the TV about his wife that day??? Sell your CD take care of your child and be happy with who you are with MANEKA!!

    Hey Usher your balls called they said they miss you buddy!

  • http://myspace.com/westendfresh westendfresh

    lol..

    why does it gotta be a meltdown? albeit a little ill-timed, he had a point. the media has repeatedly dogged his woman out. sure, being in the spotlight means you have countless people with too much free time talking about you, but that doesnt justify all the blatant disrespect.

    if the man is choosing to be with the chick. let him be.

  • http://www.myspace.com/millyly milly

    This just proves my point again...The man has lost his mind, now he goes to Trl to vent about his 44 year old wife,talking about how he fired his momma,and calling out so called "haters"
    Usher please sell us the music, not your life boo,nobody cares about Tameka, the more you throw her into peoples faces the more they gon talk sh%t about her, just let it go and be as happy as you say you are. And he mentioned Jigga, how bout you takes notes from him and dont talk about your sh#t.

    Awwww !!! So sweet. She put something on his ass and he love it ...... Too bad his record sales will suffer.Fans like to believe they have an inking(slight chance) of getting with those types of stars,or they wont buy the material.I have his new cd and I like it because its grown and sexy.

  • trina@atl

    he needs to calm down. people are going to talk about you and your relationship if you are famous or not, get use to it. if it is not true then you would not let it get to you. also do you think he was throwing jabs at other male entertainers that keep having babies and not marrying the mothers and shacking with them(puffy, p.diddy).

    haha i agree.

    common ground after all....

  • http://www.hiphopweekly.com Inspector Clueso

    Wow! Usher was looking at that camera like it was you Sandra Rose!! He was definately speaking to you and NOT anyone else claims my sources!!! Hahahahahaha!

  • London Marie

    SMH @ everyone. the man loves his wife. get over it and leave her alone. Find a football player or nba nigga's wife to pick on. Those money hungry sluts.. ugh.

  • brwnsugga4you

    this is a case of b*tcha**n*ss at it's finest. hey usher i'm ordering the pink t-shirt for you in a size xs...lol.

  • candycane

    SAY THAT ISH USHER RAYMOND!!!!!!!!!! I am not mad. People stay in they business, rumors online, in magazines, tv etc..........

    He loves his WIFE! not the jumpoff, not his girlfriend, baby mamma, but his WIFE, THE MOTHER OF HIS CHILD.

    Black love is a beautiful thing, sure is

  • London Marie

    totally agree with CANDYCANE.. I guess he should just walk around jumping from woman to woman like diddy. Then maybe people would be happy.

  • D.Ortiz

    He basically just said he married her b/c he got her pregnant, and if he was half of a man he said he was he should know having a baby does not constitute a long and prosperous marriage.

  • Anna

    @ London Marie,

    I am a Tameika fan. I think she is pretty. I am a fan of black love and a man who takes care of his family. I am just tripping that Usher finds that he has to defend his marriage, manhood or whatever all the time. How old is he again?

  • London Marie

    @ Anna. I feel what you're saying. I am so sad right now! i grew up listening to this guy. The first concert i went to was the velvet rope tour and he opened for Janet. I was 14 then. I'm a true usher STAN lol but it's getting harder everyday because of things like this and weak performances on dancing with the stars. I was so ready for him to comeback! Now I wish he woulda stayed away.. *sigh* Imma need him to get it together as far as spazzing out on TV goes.. But when it comes to the woman he chose to marry i have nothing bad to say.

  • Xsjado

    Maybe he should have taken some more time off from the spotlight, help raise his son and step-sons, got his head together, and then focus on returning to music, cause the music he's got right now is not doing it for me.

    To me, that was immature of him to act out on national t.v.

    I understand his frustrations about he said/ she said, but be the bigger man and let that ish go. You have money beyond anybody's dreams, and can do whatever you damn well please, but you can have some class about yourself too.

  • ELove

    Sandra YOUR post(s) are Cracking me The F-U-C-K UP
    You are on FIYAH!!!

    @zuley... Too Funny

  • mrsdawn

    At least he stood up for his wife and didnt refer to her as "his peoples". To me, that is real bitchassness !

  • http://xscape2xscape.com crystal

    HHHHAAAAAAAAAAA that was funny, even the host was like this boy done lost it. the look on the host's face was like what is he doing!!.(he was even signaling for the cameras to cut it) That was not the time nor the place for those comments. It was for promoting his album and doing that stunt ain't going to boost the sales. When you $hit on your fans, you $hit on your record sales. your fans have your back no matter what. and when you call out your fans and want to shut down the street team that help promote your songs, albums ect...then shame on you Usher!!

  • http://xscape2xscape.com crystal

    And as for him defending his wife, Actions do speak louder than words and sometimes saying nothing is saying A LOT!!!!

  • andriceb

    ooh that was not the business!!! Perhaps he is trying to convince himself that he did the right thing....things that make you say hmmmmm.

  • http://usherworld sweetface

    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM? YEAH MEN I AGREE WITH WHAT USHER SAID YOU GUYS NEED TO STOP TALKING TRASH ABOUT HIS FAMILY AND TALK ABOUT HIS CD. HE WILL DO GREAT AND BE NURMBER 1 AGIAN. NEXT CD.

    D.Ortiz Says:

    Thats what I took from it. Who cares what people think about you and your marriage, people are going to think what they want to regardless. Just take a page from Bey and Jay, and just not talk about it.

  • http://myspace.com/latituded400 htownshan

    Way to go "Ursher"! Nothing wrong with taking a stand about the one you love.

  • Songbird27

    Yea, like someone said, basically all he is saying is that He knocked her up and now he wants to TAKE RESPONSIBILTY. So, the message that I'm getting from this negro is that he is just tryna make himself look good. I say this and USHER, I HOPE YOU READIN' THIS NEGRO! SINCE YOU READ THE BLOGS AND KNOW WHAT'S BEING SAID. IF YOU WERE ANY TYPE OF REAL MAN, YOU STOP EXPLOITING YOUR FAMILY TO SELL RECORDS. ALL YOU SAYIN' IS THAT YOU KNOCKED HER STUPID BEHIND UP AND NOW YOU DECISION TO HANG IN THER WITH HER DUMB BUTT.

    SO WHAT NEGRO! YOU AIN'T THE FIRST TO DO IT.THERE ARE A LOT OF MAN WHO'VE STEPPED UP WAY BEFORE YOU EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT IT AND YOU DECIDE YOU WANT TO MAKE IT SOME TYPE OF MARKETING CAMPAINGE???...LIKE IT'S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE??? YOU DON'T GET A PRIZE BECAUSE YOU DECIDED TO BE A MAN CAUSE YOU MESSED UP. IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT BEING SAID THEN MAYBE YOU SHOULD JUST GO SIT YA A$$ DOWN, PUT A PAPER OVER YOUR HEAD AND JUST ADMIT THAT YOU F**KED UP AND KEEP IT MOVIN!

  • http://www.myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    I'm cool with what he did. He stuck up for his woman once and for all publicly. Now I don't need to hear him say another word about it. Forget what people say on the internet and be happy. But, yeah he's alright with me for that.

  • Deep Thoughts

    Huh! my perception of you kinda lowered Sandra. He's being a real man and sticking up for his wife. At one turn your referring to her bing to masculine and then in another breath you think she's appearing helpless. Usher is the real man and image our community is missing and it's a shame black women seem so beaten down they can't see that, and particularly can't stand to see another sister happy. I guess the pickings are so slim for some they tend to feel that way.

  • lexdiamonz

    usher sounds like a real bish... if people talk about your wife and family so fucking what sell your music he trying to CREATE drama because this album sucks then he can blame it on his "fans" hate tameka note boo-boo NOBODY CARES dare i say that is why i like BeyJay they keep it quiet and don't respond to the "so-called" haters why do he keep responding he is really letting his b*tcha**ness go work on the music fuck tameka he only married her so his son wouldn't be a bastard like he was hell i am mad at his azz now he acting like an old queen.

  • Bubbles

    I commend him for defending his wife and being proud of her despite her questionable past... but nobody cares Ush.

    The album is weak and that's the real problem.

  • LADYTEA

    All I can say is no he didn't... he soooo did not use this airtime that was suppose to be about a c-d dropping to defend Manneka!!!! this is foolish, something is up, between the both of them they are always defending something... He said he did a cut with Jay called the best thing.. they got this title from having a conversation.. Jay should have scooled him on shuting the f--k up!! If it aint broke don't fix it Dummy!! Why speak about something that's so perfect??

  • leat

    TELL EM WHY U MAD USH!!!! Hes tryna do it the right way? he couldve been like any other man? shes not the reason he fired his mom? how does that come out of your mouth, leave ur mom out of this? hes completely in DENIAL, and it seems like he did cause its the right thing to DO! not for LOVE! shes not 40, HELL that was farthest from my guess of 45!!! LOL! hes FUNNY though! theyll separate quietly, by paying her off!!! hes been listening or reading radio and blogs, i see he FINALLY mentioned his step-kids ONCE!

  • Kymystry

    Coming to work today .. there was a traffic jam ... a road obstruction ...

    someone spotted Usher's BALLS trying to their way back home ... they were in a state of confusion and looked a lil shriveled ... if anyone spots his BALLS ... please help them out ..

    this has been a Sandra Rose Help Usher get his NUTZ back public service announcement ....

  • tintin

    Sandra just referred to Mary and Kendu how black love is beautiful yet black love with Usher and Tameka i guess is ugly to her. Makes no sense to me. I love the fact he continuously defends his wife, that's a real man.

    If blog boards like this will leave them alone then he will concentrate on promoting his album rather than have to contiously deal with his own kind (black people) that continue to hate on his relationship.

  • twchoc1

    I don’t see anything wrong with defending your spouse, but in every interview?? I am an Usher fan but I am so sick of hearing him talk about how everyone is attacking his wife! Enough already, I mean if you love and think highly of her, that’s all that matters right? Why feel the need to keep talking about it. No matter what he says about her it’s not going to change people’s opinion of her so leave it alone and promote your album!! He is about to make me not want to buy this d%** cd!!!

  • estyle4039

    TRL is not the place to have an Oprah moment. LMAO.

  • MAJAHINEVERYWAY

    If everyone wants to comment on Usher's decisions over and over he has the right to say what he wants, wherever he wants and to whom he wants about it. I truly enjoy all the entertainment from my girl Sandra and a few of the other bloggers about him and everyone else. However, he is standing up for his woman and that's cool. MAJAH even. When will we learn that looks are in the eye of the beholder and that a woman who knows how to take care of a man in every aspect that the particular man desires, that's what counts. Neyo was on Tyra yesterday and he dropped some real knowledge too about the topic. I am buying the CD because I like his music. It's not about if I like him personally.

  • precious1

    All ranting aside...Usher is so RIGHT!! It takes a real man to forgo the whole shacking forever and marry and give his child his last name and a home with TWO parents living together. So many men need to take note and women as well. Stop settling for playing marriage and DO it! Stop teaching these children to live with a baby daddy forever and give your all! Teach our little Queens to Marry their Kings and stop giving the milk away and let him buy the cow!

    People may get tired of him going on and on but he is absolutely right!

  • cutienjerzey

    Usher sounds like he needs a damn hug...The host asked him " are you done", and Usher says can I say something else. That was real BITCHASSNESS at it's finest.

  • pinkvirgo

    I think he did the right thing and I commend him for it.More men should do that.People need to mind their own business he is the one that has to live w/that woman not us and if she makes him happy so be it. We should be happy for him and her, do you know how many Black women will never be wives.Why are ya'll looking forward to the demise of his relationship.SMH @ my ppl.

  • PAGESINADIARY

    LEAVE HIM ALONE ALREADY!!!!

    -------------------------------------------------------------
    So Tamika leaving her husband and taking away the fact that her kids did have a two parent home to be with a man who she was having an affair with.
    the milk was not free in that home
    she was married to her king at that moment
    she was not her husband baby mama
    so what is that teaching her sons?
    so by me making those points some may say that i am passing judgment.

    That was not the time or the place to be defending your spouse. She is not the first spouse being talked about and she will not be the last. Again Usher can say a lot by not saying nothing at all!!!
    He should take notes from the other rappers and artist who are being put on blast about their significant other. The don't give a Fvuck! about what other people say. He should worry about when folks stop talking about your wife.!!
