When we hear Usher’s name these days, very little of it is associated with positivity. With the singer being accused and being sued for knowingly exposing several women to herpes through sexual contact, he’s got quite a bit on his plate. But the RB singer appears to be moving forward with his life, determined not to let this scandal slow him down. In addition to touring, teasing new music with Jermaine Dupri and celebrating his second wedding anniversary, Usher is also appearing on “Oprah’s Master Class” this Saturday.
According to information from OWN, “Usher Raymond IV catapulted from breakout teen performer to multi-platinum music sensation and sex symbol. Usher details how he dealt with fame at a young age and the role that family has played in shaping his career and life along the way.”
In clips from the upcoming broadcast, Usher speaks about having to stand up to his mentor Diddy in order to get more studio time, to the biggest lesson he’s learned from Puff over the years.
“I’m 13 years old, like, banging on this man as though, you know, I am the manager,” Usher says. “I’m telling him, ‘Look, you’re going to put me in the studio, man. You got Biggie Smalls in there. You got Craig Mack in there. You’re going to make me a priority too. I’m not here to party with you. I don’t want to go to the clubs.’”
In another clip, he speaks about the biggest lesson from Diddy.
