The Grammy Awards In Pictures!


Last night saw the annual Grammy awards and as always it never disapoints. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lady Gaga for coming out in an egg. Who does that? It’s Genius. Well I suppose she had to out do her VMA meat dress and my God did she.

The Grammys is the night where a lot of females put on their best frocks and hope to dominate the fashion and gossip pages, but there’s no outshining Gaga. This woman has got it on lock. Everyone else just comes second to her when it comes to stealing the limelight. Luvs it.

Usher: “I was Destined To Manage Justin Bieber…”

Usher has claimed that he was destined to manage teen sensation Justin Bieber and believes God specifically placed’the ‘One Time’ singer in front of him because he understands just what it’s like to be a teen idol. The R&B juggernaut rose to fame as a teen in the 90s and knows too well just what it’s like to have hysterical screaming fans tracing your every move…

He told USA Today:

“I feel as if God specifically placed Bieber in front of me, because of how I started. I understood the hardships of trying to find yourself in this industry at that age, and I wanted him to have an instant, organic connection to his fans and he’s done that. He just has these natural talents and there are some you haven’t even seen yet.” 

Usher and Chilli Speak On Their Past Relationship!

Usher and Chilli were once to R&B what Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were to pop. They were the golden couple who seemed so perfect together. But that happy image was crushed when it was revealed the ‘OMG’ singer was unfaithful to the former TLC front woman, an incident he explained in great detail in his 2004 album, ‘Confessions’.

In a just aired episode of VH1 Behind The Music, the pair go into detail and reveal the real reason behind their very public break up:
“I basically was settled, I wanted to be with this woman and wanted to do whatever I could to make her happy. I actually talked about marriage and it didn’t work. I don’t think she was ready for it. What I expected and wanted from her she wasn’t able to give me at the time.”
Seeing as Chilli wasn’t ready to settle down just yet, the pair decided to take a break, but agreed to stay faithful to one another. However, Usher broke that promise and it was during this period that he cheated, forcing the pair to split for good.
Explaining why she didn’t want to get married, Chillie says:
“I was just exhausted from all the bull crap that I had went through before. So I had defence mechanisms all around me. I was just nervous and I didn’t want to get hurt.”
On learning of Usher’s infidelity, Chilli explains:
“I never thought of him cheating. I just didn’t expect anything like that from him because of how much we loved each other but I just kept hearing about it so I went to him and asked him, and he admitted it. I felt like a fool. I felt like I was tricked. I felt like everyone knew something that I didn’t and I’m just now finding out. I just shut down completely. I just shut everything out because that was the only way I could cope with it.”
Usher later married Tameka Foster, who he shares two sons with. But he filed for divorce from the stylist in 2009. During the VH1 episode, both Chilli and Usher agreed that if they met at a different time, then the relationship would have most probably worked. Well now they’re both single, maybe their paths will cross again.

Who knows…

Usher “OMG” Live @ The Capital FM Summertime Ball

Check out Usher’s headlining performance at last nights Capital FM Summer Jam Ball. The R&B legend was joined on stage by Black Eyed Peas front man Wil.I.Am and teen sensation Justin Bieber. Boy do the the young girls luurrve Justin Bieber – those screams could have deafened you.

I’ve got so much respect for Usher. He’s been doing his thing at the highest level for so many years now and he’s still a cut above the rest of most of today’s R&B singers. We salute you Mr Raymond.
