Can the world ever get enough of Usher Raymond? We think not!
The singer-songwriter is the cover star for Fault magazine’s Autumn/Winter 2014 issue. On the cover he looks quite broody in an all-black ensemble and in one shot in the magazine Usher can be seen biting the thigh of a model. Hmm.
The interview is entitled The Man Who Can Do It All and is meant to show the two different sides of Usher – the side that’s adored by ladies across the globe and the more reflective, thoughtful and sensitive side of the superstar.
The father of two boys opened up about his new music, NBC’s ‘The Voice’, his upcoming role as Surgar Ray Leonard and more.
Check out some of the highlights below:
On why he joined ‘The Voice': “Part of the reason why I did ‘The Voice’ was so people would get a chance to get a different perception of me.”
On his experiences coaching on ‘The Voice': “The more I know about life, the more I know about people, the greater the person I am, the more understanding I have about how to make music and how to do things that will grow us as people.”
On making the music he wants to make: “I don’t feel that I’ve got to sell out this tour, or sell crazy amounts of albums, or have the number one single. It’s great to have all those things, but that isn’t what I’m doing.”
On his new friendship with Sugar Ray Leonard (who he is playing in the new film ‘Hands of Stone': “I spent time with him in Atlanta, and here in Los Angeles. We boxed together; we chilled. He became a great friend of mine, almost like a brother to me.”
On his new album: “The one thing the album represents is confidence. Not confidence in a cocky way, but being open about what I feel, take it or leave it. If I’m not honest about my feelings then you’ll never know how I really feel.”
