Daddy Dearest

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Usher and son Usher V are on the cover of the Essence Magazine, August 2008 issue. Here’s what the proud papa has to say about fatherhood:

“He’s gonna admire me, he’s gonna look up to me. He’s gonna say, ‘I wanna be’ or he should say – ‘I wanna be like my father.”

When asked about his marriage to Tameka, Usher responds, “They think that it was forced. I’ve heard a lot of comments like, “Oh, she trapped him.” “He got a baby by her, and then she’s married and she’s set for life. No. She wasn’t pregnant when I asked her to marry me. There’s some sort of huge conspiracy over this, the fact that I made these choices in my life. No I grew older. As a man, I have to take responsibility and take a hold of my life. I’m accountable for what happens to my life now.”

Not for nothing but fatherhood looks good on ole Usher – but it’s rather amusing how buddy boy is constantly justifying his marriage to Tameka. Interesting indeed…

    They look so cute. But honestly I am tired of hearing about Ursh and his marriage like he is the only one to ever get married. N*gga please. Personally I don’t care if she trapped you off or not. That is between the two of you. But why are you constantly talking about it? Some sort of guilty conscience?

    He says she wasn’t pregnant, but he keeps talking about being responsible..”It was the responsible thing to do??” What?? ENOUGH ALREADY!!! And how about everybody pressing for pics of the baby and he simply does a shoot for Essence! LOL..Now that’s funny..Couldn’t have been for the money..LOL

  • PRTTYBRWNGIRL

    Usher so full of himself he gets on my nerves .. thats good to put a hat on this baby it deflects some of that not so cuteness

  • backyard

    He’s a lot cuter then I expected

  • Fuzzy

    Cute baby, but Ursh, as far as your “marriage”, NOBODY believes you, YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE!

  • WhatsYoursIsMine

    I don’t think he’s justifying his marriage by discussing it when asked/paid to do so. And shouldn’t marriage and parenthood go together? I understand it doesn’t work that way for everyone, but sheesh. Just let them be.

    And the baby is too cute! Making me want one!!!!

  • yeeeeahbaby

    So, is that the stylish way to hold your baby…

    You could literally cut and paste little man in or out of the pic and it wouldn’t make a difference.

    And yeah, Essence used way too much text on the cover. And the pointless teaser that covers the little boy…borderline disrespectful.

    Look at all the “exclusives” for white babies in other mags…it’s likely that wouldn’t happen…

  • Lady Architect

    The baby is adorable. As far as Usher the artists, I could care less with the scrappish album he put out and all the talk about his marriage. It don’t matter what people ask cause the media will always do that. See all the questions and rumors they do about Halle and her man, Bey and Jay. Those people just ignore it and keep it moving. Usher always contradict himself which is why people keep asking him because in another interview he said she was pregnant and people should be happy that he manned up and stuff. Either way whether pregnant or not that woman was still married while with Usher anyways which is why people call her triflin.

  • sxyQblondie

    IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT ANYONE HAS TO SAY ABOUT USHER AND HIS MATE, NO ONE CAN DENY THAT THIS CHILD IS JUST AS CUTE AS HE WANTS TO BE, WITH HIS LIL’ GRANDPA HAT ON. HIS CHEEKS ARE SO PLUMP. HE IS REALLY ADORABLE.

    Essence must not have gotten the memo that people are tired of Usher. Not even pics of his precious little man are enough to make me read yet another article on him.

  • ivy
