Wedding bells: Usher and Tamika Foster are engaged

Usher and Tamika Foster

It's official this time, R&B Celebrity Usher has finally given a statement to MTV saying he is engaged to his long term girlfriend and stylist Tamika Foster and plans to marry by the end of the year. This news is no surprise for our readers as we already wrote about their unconfirmed (at that time) romance. One month ago we were writing about what The New York Post revealed: “it’s 100 percent official. She is wearing a beautiful ring and he’s been introducing her as his fiancée.” The couple, Usher and Tameka have been hiding their romance for over a year and are now they were ready to make it public announcing their wedding.
But is Usher a responsible man? Maybe there is a baby on the way.. but I can't still see him as a good husband. Usher' new album will be out in stores by November and it's probable going to coincide with his wedding. Apparently Tamika' own mission is to hit the fashion scene with her own designs..

Usher to play younger Morgan Freeman

Usher

The R&B singer Usher, who is set to mark himself in the movies, is in negotiations to play the younger Morgan Freeman in a new movie. After talking with the acting icon, Usher is sure their new movie project together will happen.
I sat with Morgan Freeman to talk about a script that he put together for both of us, possibly for next year (06). I play an assassin. I play him in retrospective. I play (Freeman) as a younger character, and it takes place in Cuba.

It's a very, very, very cool script. The type of script that you would want to have yourself involved in - a character that I've never seen, that I could never identify with. That's basically what I look for.

I go after those scripts where it's a character that one, would not be typically played by somebody like myself, based off of what you know of Usher, and two, something that kind of gives you a little bit of edge.

One of the 21 music bosses on the panel of judges, who remained nameless, insisted Britney Spears didn't deserve to be on the new Power List because "she's over", while another suggested her pop rival Christina Aguilera didn't make the list because she's "too volatile".
