Usher: C. Breezy is the Next Me

- By Bossip Staff

Usher thinks he paved the way for young talent:

Usher has hailed fellow singer Chris Brown as a younger version of himself – insisting the star will “follow the same path”. Usher, 29, was just 15 when he released his self-titled debut album in 1994 and has gone on to forge a highly successful music career. And Usher is convinced Brown, 19, is all set to follow in his footsteps and dominate the R&B scene.

He says, “All of this young energy is great for the industry. Chris is the guy who dances and sings, which is a lot like I do and did as a young artist as well. If time serves us correctly, and artists are continuing to better themselves, then hopefully he’ll follow the same path that I did.”

Wait a minute, last time we checked ALL these little niccas dancing around singing on the stage jacked Michael Jackson for his style.

    That is very generous of Usher. The fact is Usher can actually sing and Chris….not so much.

  • Raven

    Michael stole it from James Brown and made it mainstream.

    Just about everyone stole something from James Brown, actually…

  • Kbee

  • Wenzel Dashington

    I hope the path doesnt include a 40+ year old mother of four in his grill.

  • soulwoman

    Michael got some moves from James but there was many things that he did that James did not. Michael had his own identity, stop the madness. You can’t look at these young guys and not see Michael. You can look at these youngs guys an not James. They ALL (including Usher) copy Michael vides, dance moves, clothes…the whole nine.

    Usher did not start singing and dancing so he needs to sit down. He is always talking slick about the younger boys. He was a clone of Bobby Brown, then eventually starting dubbing Michael Jackson.

  • ATLBlogger

    Damn, Usher almost 30….Has it been that long?

  • da darkness

  • Kelloggs

    At 1st when Ush made that comment on 106 like he was runnin’ thangs, I thought he was just bein’ a cocky bastard, but you really can see where Chris looks up to Usher, and Chris is not 19, until May 5, get ur biz right, and get off my boy Chris, he can sing damnit!

  • 6 Figgaz

    @ Wenzel: You’s a fool for dat one…

    Breezy ain’t no Usher and ain’t ever gonna be no Usher. Period. N*gga can’t even sing for Chrissakes. Usher disrespected himself with that comment…

  • Doc

    that should be under a HOE SIT DOWN. Usher you aint a legend yet.

  • HomoMafia

    I still remember when Usher did not like being compared to Mario or Chris Brown, what happened?

  • And...

    I feel sorry for Usher…excuse me Ur-sher Raymond.

    When you start talking and stop performing you have a problem.

    Nobody needs props from anybody and he knows he’s not making love to anybody in the club.

    I have 2 words for everybody…Madonna & Prince.

    They are going to die on the stage and the fans are going to love it.



  • And...

    @ Brooklyn…

    No, he’s little at heart, lol. They’re all midgets.

  • Raven

    google it lol.

  • LadyJanell

    No one wants to be you, Usher, puh-lease. Not now anyway…maybe back in 8701 days that would have been a compliment to Chris, but he is far beyond talented in dancing (better than Usher). He should keep doing what HE is doing and follow HIS OWN path.
