Everyone’s favorite odd couple, Usher and his new wife Tameka Foster appear on the cover of the November issue of Essence magazine and discuss their “love for each other”. Via Essence.com:

Usher on how the media and bloggers reacted negatively to the news of his engagement to Tameka Foster:

“It was like, wow. (Getting married) and having a child is something that everyone should celebrate. What’s happened to us as a culture and a people? I’m not ignorant, so I’m not going to go out there and lash out….”

Usher on how he and Tameka have stayed strong:

“Ours is not a typical love story, but it is a true one. Tameka and I have been fortunate enough to go through the thick of it in the beginning. We’ve had that opportunity to huddle up as a team, to make sure that we’re clear and speak as one voice.”

Tameka on when she knew to trust her instincts, instead of her girlfriends, about starting a relationship with her future husband:

“Thank God I didn’t listen to my girlfriends…. Usher was my road dawg. I’d seen him love, and I’d watched him date women who were not worthy of him. He was so sweet, going out of his way to cater to their every need. And I’d see them not even be grateful.”

 

Usher on what he’s learned about becoming a father:

“Tameka’s given me one of the greatest gifts I’ll ever have. With a child, now I have purpose. I understand love.”

Tameka on falling for her husband:

“I feel totally uninhibited with Usher. I’ve never been in a situation with anyone, even as far back as high school, where there were no secrets. I know I can tell him anything and he’s not going to judge me. I can finally share my dreams. And because of that, I know that man loves me.”

Aww, doesn’t that just sound so dreamy. There’s still something that seems a little fishy with these two. Love is a beautiful thing, but damn, they sound like puppets. They can not possibly go the whole interview without discussing the beef with Usher’s mom. We’ll just have to pick up that issue to find out…

    What’s happened to us as a culture and a people?

    I completely agree. Instead of black folks being happy to see a black man getting married to a “real” black woman and taking care of his responsibilites they hate.

    We are doomed as a people.

    I myself are happy for the two, so good luck to them both.

  • AND...

    forget usher and tameka i want to know what hillary’s plan for black america is. i may have to cop this issue.

  • catfish

    Usher seems like he has a good head on his shoulders. I like that he keeps it real. Best wishes brother.

  • Butterfly

    Screw ” a black man getting married to a “real” black woman” – how about a black man gettting married period? What does the color of the woman have to do with anything? And what consitutes a real black woman? This black man-black woman argument (brought up every single time)is getting REAL old.

    Time will tell on these two. Live and let love.

    Usher looks edible on the pic.

    He’s looking more like a man and not so much a boy.

    WHAT EXACTLY IS A REAL BLACK WOMAN AND THEREFORE ALSO TELL ME WHICH ONES ARE FAKE. TSK TSK!

    @Leah,

    Sorry dear, but I cant cosign on that. Has the standard been set so low that we will accept anything? He could have found someone who wasnt married with children. Correct me if I am wrong but didnt she leave her husband for Usher? Arent Usher and his mother now estranged because of this relationship? Shouldnt she be focusing on her children instead of starting another family with a man so much younger than her? She should have allowed him to find a relationship with someone around his age, with no children, so he could start a family. And perhaps, just perhaps. he should, while he is still young, be focusing on his music career. He will not be able to be “Usher” forever.

    They both need to stop it. what I got out of that WHOLE INTERVIEW SNIPPET is that Tameka watched Usher in relationships with other women and she was jealous and envious. She was probably the MAIN one trying to make him believe that Chili and others weren’t worthy of him and she was. Also, she is acting like this is her first child. EEK -MEEK what about the other kids you have?!?!?!?! While Usher is grateful of the fact EEK-MEEK is giving him a child, he should be leery of how she just dropped the ball with the other kids she has. The saga continues……

    I wonder how many post this will get. All this talk about hating on J and B. All this talk of endorsing black love. All this talk on supporting black couples.

    I don’t listen to no B or J stans, because simple-mindness is a tragedy. Tameka basically said nothing more of what I already knew. His past girlfriends wasn’t nothing more than eye candy, with no substance. They couldn’t F**k well. They didn’t appreciate, (Chilli) and the (Supermodel) all the shyt he did for them. I bet she was trying to make ush her baby daddy something that is clearly Dallas problem. You and Tameka look great, keep hanging in there and shake them haters off!

  • CECE

    she looks really old to me. Why would he marry a woman who deserted her husband and three children like that?

  • Leah

    Black women ALWAYS complain when a brother dates/marries a biracial women, spanish women, asian women, indian women, white woman, but as soon as he marries a “REAL”, black woman (meaning coarse hair, full lips, brown skin, etc) everyone dogs him out so bad. It makes no damn sense. I am happy for them both, and I am happy to see black love in Hollywood.

  • salle

    Usher has the nastiest nose I’ve seen on a man in a long time. His nose looks just like squidworth’s from spongebob squarepants.

    Awwwwwwwww

  • kelis

    @ kigali

    I said the exact same things, and still feel that way. But we are on the outside looking in, and he married the chick, so apparently all that doesn’t matter to him. So, all you really can do is wish them well, right? And to Leah, its not hating, its called having an opinion.

  • Um....Yeah

    How about some comments on the hilary interview? Little but more interesting than chld and the beast

  • Creole Princess

    I don’t think she looks as bad as everyone claim her to be. It would be nice if she acknowledged her other children though. For some reason looking at this picture reminds of the cover of one of E.Lynn Harris’s books.

  • IAMLEGEND

    Two dudes in love. How sweet. Hey, congratulations, guys!

  • Moreaces

    If he likes it, I love it. And wish them the best, but that does not take away from the fact, that ole, girl looks like a dude, and seems fishy,, yes
