Usher has described his CD Confessions as some of his most personal work yet. Why? "Well, one of the topics that I chose, not just, you know, specifically talking about my situation [breakup with girlfriend Chili of TLC], but I feel like these are things that people can identify with. Very serious issues dealing with infidelity and dealing with the truth that we all have to accept ourselves, you know, letting go of great relationships, walking away."
What does Usher think about his success? "It's a blessing. It is what I've always wanted. What I prayed for as a young kid. What I really wanted my mother to help me create. And, you know, now that it's happened, I'm just thankful and I'm looking for that next step that God chooses to take me in. It may be music, it may be acting, it may be producing."
