Usher on his relationship with Chilli:
I basically was settled, I wanted to be with this woman and wanted to do whatever I could to make her happy. I actually talked about marriage and it didn’t work. I don’t think she was ready for it. What I expected and wanted from her she wasn’t able to give me at the time.

Why Chilli didn’t want to get married:
I was just exhausted from all the bull crap that I had went through before. So I had defense mechanisms all around me. I was just nervous and I didn’t want to get hurt.

Usher cheats and Chilli breaks down:
I never thought of him cheating. I just didn’t expect anything like that from him because of how much we loved each other but I just kept hearing about it so I went to him and asked him, and he admitted it. I felt like a fool. I felt like I was tricked. I felt like everyone knew something that I didn’t and I’m just now finding out. I just shut down completely. I just shut everything out because that was the only way I could cope with it.

Usher speaks on what drew him to Tameka:
We started out working together. We built a bond that I felt was very healthy. I felt that she not only understood my world but understood how to be in it.

INTERVIEW WIT VIBE MAGAZINE

On whether or not she’d take Usher back:

No, I don’t know. I’m not anticipating it. I’m not working toward it. But it’s [also] not a closed chapter. I’m not saying that I’m not open for discussion on it, but it’s not something I’m working on. I’ve closed the chapter of having Usher as my mate. Now am I willing to reopen it? I can’t say. Do I still love him? I love him very much and you marry someone with the intent of sitting in a rocker with the person. I have sons that look just like him, so I have to deal with him pretty much every day.

Thoughts on Lil’ Freak:

When I heard that song, I was appalled. But I felt like ‘Am I being prudish?’ I feel not cool because [threesomes] are what everyone’s doing now or whatever. I wasn’t a big fan, but the track is ridiculous… The devil makes bad things sound good [laughs]. I had many, many conversations with him about that [song]. I was just like ‘What are you doing, kid? These are our sons, you can’t be talking that.’ He’s like. ‘My album is a dichotomy.’ [Laughs] [But] I love “OMG,” I have a video of [my kids] dancing to it, it’s so cute.

Future Plans:

[I’m an] independent woman, not trying to get any spotlight from [Usher]. Tameka Raymond is satisfied. She is a mom first, I’m an entrepreneur, I have goals. I want to leave behind a legacy of things that are beyond [my sons’] father.

“Money couldn’t be enough…it would never be enough. I have to be able to give the time every year to mentor youth with every opportunity that I can…”

Usher is continuing to give back to youth in the community through his New Look foundation.

The foundation has been in existence for ten years with a mission to mentor youth into being leaders.

Usher and his foundation were featured Thursday on NBC Nightly News and Usher shared details on an annual summer camp his foundation hosts.

The free summer camp is open to 150 youth with goals of honing their talents to become dancers, singers or producers and teaches them about the business side of their potential industries.
