Usher’s Open Letter to People Magazine….
“It has already been announced that I plan to marry this year. However, since my wedding day will be special to Tameka and I, this is information that we would like to keep private. It’s disturbing that the media and bloggers (under the guise as ‘fans’) continuously speculate on the personal aspects of my life, therefore making assumptions and wrong insinuations that my fans are subject to believe.
“I am happy, excited, completely clear and independent on my direction, feelings, decisions and I am NOT BEING LED. Some media and bloggers have been totally intrusive, they have misconstrued aspects of my personal life and, because of this, my ‘true’ fans are not sure about what is fact and what is fiction. There is a difference in stating an opinion versus drawing a conclusion that is incorrect.
“As previously reported, I have NEVER threatened or harassed anyone from any media format – print, radio, television or Internet media. At this point the best thing to say to my fans is just because it sounds enticing and it MAY sound ‘true,’ that does not make it truth. I understand the fact that I must sacrifice some anonymity for the career I love, however some things are personal like having a child or a marriage. These aspects are not for the public and, to me, are sacred. I would hope my privacy in these areas would be respected.”
Ursh, what the hell are you referring to that sounds so enticing and may sound true but isnt? That you’re getting married? That you’re fiancee is prego? That she’s older than you? That she wasnt divorced before you started dating her? That since your engagement, you’ve fired your mom as manager? Which part of that….
And as for your “some things are private, like having a child or a marriage” claim…..so I guess we wont be seeing any photos from your wedding in….say…People Magazine? And none of those standard blissful daddy-mommy-newbaby portraits either?
