Usher Blames Lesbianism On Lack Of Good Men, Hopes To Rectify Situation By Example
Usher isn’t just looking out for all those women forced into sapphic unions for the want of a man like Usher. (Are you not studying the stories? Wake up!) Despite rumors that he fired his mom after she spoke ill of his wife-to-be, he says he released her of her managerial obligations so she could be a “full-time grandmother” and knit booties and shit.
“I love my mother — she’s the only one I have,” he said, pausing for a moment before continuing. “I decided to not fire, not get rid of, but to give [my mother] the ultimate compliment — to retire her to be a full-time grandmother. My mother and I decided to change her situation, together. There was a conversation. I didn’t write her a letter or pink-slip her.”
Not that she’s actually been parked on a rocking chair, telling Tameka Foster what a colicky baby Usher was.
For her part, Patton noted in the article that she’s still a very active executive. “I’m managing Natasha, an artist on Jive Records, a guy group called Kwiet Storm, and a solo artist, Dante,” she said. “I started my own record label — JPat Records. I also manage [my younger son], producer JLack — he’s signed to Usher’s production company.”
If only every woman could have an Usher in her life.
