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…
