Usher Wants His Mommy Back In Charge

|

Has Usher finally realized that firing his Mom-ager Jonetta Patton was a bad idea? The singer dumped his mama last year around Mother’s Day for super-manager Benny Medina (he’s handled Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez, to name a couple), but has apparently been freaking out that his latest album is selling way below 2004′s “Confessions.” Medina supposedly tried to stroke his ego and assure him that “Here I Stand” is doing just fine considering the current economic climate, but when Lil Wayne sold over a million copies of his new album in one week, Usher flipped his sh*t. “Usher was livid!,” said a spy. “He threatened to fire everyone.”

The BET Awards, which the singer headlined, also performed poorly in the ratings, and the show’s stinky performance only added to Usher’s anxiety. Now friends are telling the star that maybe he should re-hire his mom, whose beef with Usher’s wife apparently contributed to her getting axed. Now that the ladies are getting along, while her contract get picked back up? [NYDN]

    Usher should have never fired his Mom because it seems like to me he was hotter than ever minus the wife and kids. He should have just stayed a momma’s boy maybe she made sure he was eating right and was taking his flinestone vitamins, because now he looks like a washed up old man. I watched the BET Awards and my father has smoother moves than he did and he’s 59 years old. Would somebody please give Grandpa Usher a cain and a hoveround for his next performance; because whatever type of dancing he call his self doing at the BET Awards was stiff and ridiculous?

    haha usher needs to dumb his wife an hire is mom. or at lease separate business from pleasure, he should not have his wife having the final say on his carreer it should be a business move, personal feelings should be left out of it.
