Preview: Oprah Winfrey Speaks Exclusively w/ Usher On 'Oprah's Next Chapter' Sept. 16

From an OWN press release (watch a preview of the show at the bottom of this post):


Oprah Winfrey travels to Atlanta for an intimate interview with Grammy Award-winning R&B artist Usher Raymond IV who speaks publicly for the first time — and according to Usher the last time — regarding the custody battle over his two boys and what caused his break down in court. Winfrey’s exclusive interview with Usher will air on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” this Sunday, September 16 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

In addition to his thoughts on being granted primary custody of his two boys, Usher candidly addresses infidelity rumors and what really happened the night he walked off stage in Berlin and felt he may never perform again. Later, Winfrey speaks with Usher’s mother Jonetta Patton, who has remained silent throughout the custody battle, as Patton answers why she chose not to attend her son’s wedding and the reason behind their reported rift.

Usher is a multi-platinum-selling and seven time Grammy Award-winning artist. Usher recently released his seventh studio album “Looking 4 Myself” (RCA) which debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart and is his fourth consecutive studio album to enter at the top of the chart. Usher has been ranked by the RIAA as one of the best-selling artists in American music history, having sold over 44 million albums worldwide and was named the number one Hot 100 artist of the 2000s decade. Billboard named him the second most successful artist of the 2000s decade, with his career-propelling 2004 album “Confessions” being ranked as the top solo album of the 2000s decade. Usher has attained nine Hot 100 number-one hits (all as a lead artist) and 18 Hot 100 top-ten singles.

I can’t wait to watch this interview, by Oprah, who happens to be one of my favorite interviewers. I love how she so effortlessly gets the information out of people. I can’t wait to hear Usher’s take on his mother not attending his wedding, his stage performance in Berlin, and accusations of infidelity. My Dish coworkers were talking about this interview today at work, so I can’t wait to watch the recording on my Hopper. I love that when I play back the recording I’ll be able to start watching on my living room TV and then continue watching on any TV in my house, right where I left off.


I could care less about the answer to the last question in the clip. I wonder if she's going to book Tameka? It's good to show both sides. I also wish that she would book Camille since Kelsey Grammer had his say a couple of weeks ago.


I'm not a fan of Oprah's toothless celebrity interviews on OWN. I watched the majority of Rihanna and bits of the Kelsey Grammer one, and she didn't drill down to ask the questions that anybody who pays attention to pop culture really want to know. (Example: R-What about those drug photos from Coachella?) All for ratings and to stay on their good sides, I guess.
