Gracing the pages of Atlanta’s 944 Magazine this month, Usher claims to know a thing or two about being counted out. Even still, the Grammy winner hopes people will move past his mistakes and join him on his latest journey…. “People are always ready to count you out,” the divorced father of two tells 944. “I am very conscious of the fact that people want something great”. While bombarded with rumor after rumor when it comes to his marriage to stylist Tameka Foster; his business relationship with his mother and rumors of an affair with a Def Jam executive, Usher seems to think that each experience strengthens his authenticity as an artist — even with the song “Papers”. “I don’t look at anything as a failure or a mistake,” he says. “Why would you trust someone singing about love and heartbreak that’s never experienced it ?” Usher’s latest effort, “Raymond V. Raymond” is in stores now.
