    ... yup, this is the exact diolague...

    "Announcer: ..wanna here Usher's Sexy Scion(tm) Sounder? It goes like this...

    Usher: Yo...what up...this is U to the H to the E to the R..."

    My coworker listens to 93.9 (rap and R&B). Most of it is terrible. Some of the R&B stuff is cool, there's one or two songs with slap bass in it (it's much better stuff than anything rock has to offer these days). Usher's songs do not fall into these catagories. He is a grade A dumb@$$.

  2. Fixed it for you. :D

    I respect his music, but his persona leaves alot to be desired.

    He lives in a neighborhood about two miles down the road and a while ago his house got toilet papered with about 600 rolls of toilet paper. It looked like it snowed only at his house. He has security cameras all over the place but they got away with it.

    If you could pay for all of the dance teachers and choreographers that he does, you could dance like a Michael Jackson rip-off too.

    That song "Yeah" pissed me off. The majority of the song is just the one word and here's the funny part: Usher didn't write it.

    Dude, it's Ursher, not Usher. :D

    Music is formulaic and boring, but he can carry a tune fairly well.

    Oh, about him not writing his music; it wouldn't surprise me to hear that the majority of current "pop" singers have never written a song of their own.

    Or any song for that matter.

  13. I waited this entire time for someone to post that! :D

    BTW with all the horrible spelling on this board, people want to make fun of someone else for spelling :confused: - and that's on the radio- you can't proof read what you say live on the air.

    Ther Urkel rap ruled. Do the URKEL!

    Usher is kinda hard to spell, I mean it's pronounced

    Uh shur... isn't that weird?!
  15. Maybe if he wasn't trying to add so much Flayvah, the brotha could keep is spellin 'on. Keep it real, you Michael Jackson rippin off midget.

    Talentless smug little imitator. I'll sum up his last few singles

    "Buckle up baby because I want to tell ya I cheated on you"

    Man, is that groundbreaking or what?!?!?!
