Usher and Tameka Foster must be somewhere shaking their heads right about now: According to TMZ.com, OK! magazine paid actor Mathew McConaughey and his biracial baby mama, Camila Alves, a whopping 3 MILLION for the exclusive rights to pics of their newborn son.

Alves gave birth to the couple's first child on Monday night, and the bidding war began shortly thereafter.

You will recall that Sean Combs threw a hissy fit at People magazine for not putting his twins on the cover. That's the difference between A-listers and stars who think they're A-listers.

    No, thats the difference between blacks (who do nothing but post you-tube videos) & whites (who have movies out every 6-8 months).

    LMAO @ Mocha...

    I think this is a really good example Sandra...however, I have YET to understand what Matthew McConaughy's appeal is. I'm sorry but any man who doesn't wear deordrant is NOT hot...good hygiene is a must.

  • PAGESINADIARY

    WAS IT NECESSARY TO MENTION THE FACT THAT SHE IS BI-RACIAL?

  • LB

    Biracial? Camila is from Brazil :| who does ur fact checking? lmao

  • mizzdallas

    Sandra how come youd didnt post pics of Usher & Meka baby.

    $3M for Matthew baby he is not an A-lister he is fine though I give him that.

  • MOCHAMOMMY

    @ Mz Magnificient, I dont see it either (even though I love a couple of his movies). He knows he couldnt be with an American girl stankin like that so he got him a foreign Becky!! LOL

    I'm going to pull a wild card and guess the reason P. Diddy's (or what ever the latest name is)twins did not command a large sum of cash is because he is a baby's daddy not a father (in the eyes of white america and I agree). Most of the actors that received large sums for photos are one of two things 1. it's their first kid or 2. It's an additional kid but the couple is married. Neither fits PD.

    I could be wrong but that's my guess.

  • http://www.myspace.com/hune916 HunE916

    I think majorities of people do NOT wear deodorant. That is a “Western” trend. If you go to places like Africa, South America, they think WE stink with all of that deodorant and perfume. All that is chemicals that suppress your body’s natural secretions. HOWEVER..I don’t want no funky dude neither! lol

    But I’m sorry, MM is one fine White boy! That smile and those dimples- mmm!

    @ MOCHAMOMMY- I don’t think a brown skinned Brazilian chick constitutes a foreign Becky. She’s closer to a foreign Negro! lol

  • NYCUTIE

    ^^^ You are tooo funny :)
    I love me some him! That dude wears deoderant.. Don't believe the hype!

    Ok thinking now I forgot Brad Pitt and Freak woman who are not married.

    Sigh - educate yourself...Thats the dumbest thing Ive heard.....Africans and South Americans wear deodorant and other cultures that live outside of the "western world"...Please! They are hygenic too...they dont live in caves...damn!

  • MOCHAMOMMY

    Prynsexx, the line starts behind me... I want a straight whiskey!! LOL

    Thats true though. Angelina and Brad Pitt always have somethin out. That crappy ass Raisin in the Sun movie or that album Play cant possibly be considered real work

    ______________________________________________________

    Deodorant has nothing to do with hygiene! Hygiene is the science concerned with the prevention of illness and maintenance of health. You will not get ill from not using deodorant! Not using deodorant doesn’t equal primitivity. Someone just decided that your body’s natural order wasn’t a pleasant smell and developed deodorant to cover it up.

    Nor did I say NO ONE in Africa or South America use it- I said a majority don’t- neither is it a common practice in many Asian, Indian, and Middle Eastern countries.

    So my friend YOU need to be educated- I hope I helped.

    And for future reference, please be noted that I am not the one to post imaginary facts. So it’s not a good idea to test me. CHURCH!

    well, thats how it came off...poorly constructed statment

  • London Marie

    yeah, she isn't biracial. And we all know the difference between black celebs. If Usher had a baby with Jessica " I'm not latina" alba, it would be a different story. But honestly I dont think it's cool to exploit ya kids for money anyway. His spread in essence is nice and cute.

  • candi got gushy

    Halle Berry is A-list,no pics yet of lil Nahlia,maybe she's not interested in pimping her baby out or maybe mainstream media dont care about her black baby... time will tell...3mill for his baby and they payed britney spears sis nicely Ive read too and she is only a star on nickelodeon.

  • candi got gushy

    ok to the stans her(Halle's) mixed with white baby,still usually black celeb babies or bi-racial dont be getting covers or millions of dollas for pics.Im pissed off cause I wanted to see Tamia and Grant Hills baby,That couple from Soul Food had a baby recently and alot of others didnt get from page news unless they were adopted by a white celeb..

  • Lucy

    Difference being Candi Soul Food may have been a hit for you and others but main stream NO. The Hill family are A-listed within the sports world not Hollyweird. Yes you may see them on the red carpet but for show not to get the awards or be the main attraction.

  • GWU

    I think we forget that these magazines that pay millions are sold primarily in middle America. People, OK! have huge subscription readerships, in addition to newsstand sales. Middle America doesn't care about Usher or P. Diddy. And they won't care that much about Halle or Jessica, but I bet Jessica gets way more for her baby photos than Halle does. How they decide this, is who buys the magazine when they put these celebrities on their covers. Some stars, sell tabloids, others don't. Most of us will read about P Diddy online, but we are not shelling out 4 bucks to read about him in people magazine.

  • katgirl33

    MM's baby is commanding the dollars, b/c they trying to get back in his good graces after his surfer boys beat down the paparrazzi a few weeks ago...LOL

  • candi got gushy

    It does not matter if celebs are in hollyweird or the sports world ect,,,, last I checked diff magazines cater to just about everything and if they can put Tiger Wood white ass baby on the cover with him on a sports mag they can put black babies as well.

  • bklynchick

    Whatever. Celebs are having babies left and right. Who cares??? I know who is going to get those millions for their babies Angie and Brad!! Please believe that. I saw Usher on the cover of Essence (that's my oldest baby name) and he looked just like him.

  • Fatkat

    See what had happened was Matthew was considered one of Hollywoods most finest and all the white women wanted him but couldn't keep him and some didn't want to trap him at the time. They want to see if the baby is ugly. It is true these people are having babies left and right to get a lump sum of money and they talk about regular folk using their kids (hhhhmmmmm).

  • http://www.stylishmoms.net Nina

    P. Diddy is only "A-list" among the Black community...and being on the Essence cover is nothing like People, OK with subscriptions doubled what Essence brings in.

    No disrespect to Tameka, but I was happy Ush left her off the cover. We just not checking for her right now.

  • dblaq

    Maybe the A list is contructed to how well liked an artist is and how he is perceived just because you are selling records and have money doesn't make you an A list.

    If you sell millions of records and you are rich, people may just look at you just as that a million record selling, rich dumb ass. You can like someones talent but not the person. I do that with R. Chester I meant Kelly. I like some of his music but I won't buy it and I still think he should go to jail for his illness.

  • ChokLitFactory

    I agree that the real reason they didn't pay Diddy is cuz his ass is black. Diddy has a star on the Hollywood walk of fame, does McConaughey(sp?)?? Also, whoever said it was b/c Diddy was not married, neither is MaConaughey, Nicole Ritchie and her BF or Halle (we'll see her on a cover soon). I'm surprised people care that much about McConaughey's baby, I sure don't! But his baby momma is very pretty!
