OWN’s ratings were off the charts last night between Oprah’s Next Chapter with Usher and Iyanla: Fix My Life Pt. 2 with Evelyn Lozada. Oprah has a reputation for respectfully squeezing the juice out of her guests, but Usher danced around a lot of the questions.
When asked about his marriage, Usher discussed how many people were against it, including his mother. He explained how the two tried everything from counseling to looking to friends to save their marriage from the pits of Hollywood. He also made it clear that he wasn’t faithful to Tameka and did have an intimate relationship with one of her bridesmaids.
Usher and Tameka recently settled a custody battle where Usher became the primary parent. He went on to explain how he adjusted his schedule to become a full-time dad.
A lighter part of the interview was when Usher admitted to having sex to his own music. His playlist includes sultry tones like Teddy Pendegrass and ends on his hit single, “Climax.”
I’d love for Oprah to interview Tameka. Oh, and I must add how much I loved Oprah’s dress and studded belt.
