Usher Thinks Usher Is Really, Really Awesome

Confidence is an amazing thing. If you’re able to look in the mirror and say “hey, self, you’re a beautiful, amazing person,” then that’s fabulous. And of course it’s an attractive quality in other people, but I think we can all agree that there’s a point when someone’s confidence can cross over into arrogance. And that’s annoying as hell.

In related news, here’s an interview where Usher is being annoying as hell:

Usher thinks everything he does is ”genius”.

The ‘OMG’ hitmaker considers it important to live his life to the full and always believe in everything he tries his hand to.

He said: ”I live every day like it’s my last. I approach everything I ever do as though it’s the most genius thing ever, regardless of whether it is or not.

”I really do believe something incredible is happening every moment I’m able to continue to do this. So I wanna live in it. Enjoy every waking moment. And I really do.”

Usher is happy to be good looking and enjoys the fact he is attractive to women.

He added: ”If I could turn [being] this good-looking down, I mean, I don’t know that I would. I was fortunately blessed with these good looks, I may as well do something with them, you know what I mean? I think we’re all just trying to live up to Sean Connery, the epitome of cool.”

The singer admits he has always had a strong sense of self belief.

He added to Q magazine: ”As a kid my mother would say, ‘You should stop running around telling people you’re gonna be a superstar!’ It was too much for people but I needed something to believe in.”

See, I was kind of on the fence for the first half of the interview. Approaching everything you do like it’s genius sounds ok, as long as you understand that sometimes it really isn’t. And if you’re as famous and wealthy as Usher is, then it’s great that he enjoys every moment of his good fortune. But when he started talking about how impossibly good-looking he is? Please. Who are you, Megan Fox? Ugh.
