Music Video: Usher – ‘She Came to Give It to You’ featuring Nicki Minaj

Usher has always thought he was Michael Jackson reincarnate (even before MJ was dead), so it’s no surprise to me that he’s continuing to try to morph into the King of Pop. It’s not happening, of course, but that doesn’t seem to discourage him. His new single is called ‘She Came to Give It to You’, which is like ‘Blurred Lines’ redux. Because we needed another ‘Blurred Lines’, of course.

Nicki Minaj features in the song/video and Drake is even there, splurging on a bunch of bags of chips (well, he was there behind-the-scenes, anyway). Live large, man.

This song is awful.

Usher says Justin Bieber isn’t a racist, so…

Usher‘s the man responsible for bringing Justin Bieber into our lives, so we only have him to blame thank, right? You’d think he’d be pretty disappointed from all of the revelations about Justin happening lately – from the racist jokes, to the glee over talking about killing “n****rs”, JB is really a class act.

Surprisingly, most of the black people in Justin’s public life don’t seem to be all that bothered about it – though that sorta makes sense considering how much money they have to lose by severing ties with the little prick. With that in mind, Usher offered a message of support and insisted that his little protegee is totally not racist at all, he was just “naive”.

Usher posted the above photo with the following message on his Instagram page this weekend:

At my core, I am a person that supports growth and understands without judgement, that growth often comes as a result of pain and continues effort. As I have watched Justin Bieber navigate difficult waters as a young man, I can tell you that he hasn’t always chosen the path of his greatest potential, but he is unequivocally not a racist. What he was 5 years ago was a naive child who did not understand the negative power and degradation that comes from playing with racial slurs. What he is now is a young man faced with an opportunity to become his best self, an example to the millions of kids that follow him to not make the same mistakes.

Ay carumba. Again, I find it hard to listen to any of these assholes coming out and supporting him – especially when their motivations are not about tolerance about financial gain. NOPE.

Usher Is Staging an Intervention for Justin Bieber Down In Panama

Usher was Justin Bieber‘s mentor for many years, so he presumably cares about his well-being (and may or may not have a financial stake in it). Since Justin has been getting in all sorts of trouble and it’s getting serious now since arrests are involved, Usher’s decided to take a break from… whatever it is he’s doing these days to fly down to Panama, where Biebs is currently sunbathing away from the American press, to stage an intervention.

From TMZ:

Sources tell us Usher flew to Panama for a serious come-to-jesus with JB on the heels of his arrest in Miami.

We’re told Justin’s manager Scooter Braun, and Justin’s childhood friend Ryan Butler, are also there for the sit-down. Scooter got roped in for a pic with a Belieber at the resort where they’re all staying.

We haven’t heard this word used, but this meeting has all the earmarks of an intervention.

Well, fair enough, but I doubt an intervention of any kind is going to help this kid at this point. Maybe they should have intervened for the past six years to keep him from getting this way. But no, that would have been too easy and might have stopped the money flow! Couldn’t have that now, could we? Fuck that.

I do think Justin needs to get into rehab stat and get off the Sizzurp and pills and all that, but what difference will rehab make when he gets out and starts hanging out with the same people? When the damage of being a child star who’s been exploited for all of his teen years still hasn’t dealt with all that properly? Nice try, but I think it’ll take more than a measly sit-down in Panama to fix all this, and too many paychecks are involved to make it worthwhile.
