Usher may not have won video of the year at the VMA
s, but he’s still got a spot in the hearts of Shecky’s Staffers! After dancing to “OMG” all summer and then seeing his incredible routine at the VMAs, we’re highlighting super-hottie Usher as the first fella for our new Crush of the Week column.
When Usher burst into the mainstream music scene with his sophomore album My Way in 1997 (what were YOU doing in 1997?), America swooned over his sweet voice and fresh, young face. Twelve years later, this American sweetheart has risen to the status of an R&B king without losing an ounce of his sweetness, amazing looks or famous abs.
On top of being his fine-looking self and a ridiculously good performer, Usher was the genius behind discovering and mentoring the talented upstart Justin Beiber (sorry, Beibs! You’re too young for our Crush of the Week list). In addition to his already amazing scent for men, VIP ($35-50 at Kohl’s), he has also has a fantastic women’s fragrance, called SHE ($38-52 at Kohl’s). It’s evident that this hottie has a lot of a lot of entreprenurial career-builders on the table, and yet, he remains approachably unpretentious and out of the tabloids.
Let’s review the checklist. Gorgeous? Yes. (Let’s talk about those rock-hard dancer abs…again!) Talented? Absolutely! Smart as hell? Certainly seems like it. So, the man’s got the looks, the moves, the brains and five Grammys? We’ve got a confession, we’re in looooove.
