Vibe / December 15, 2010

There comes a time where every mega-star pats himself on the back and Usher just might be giving himself a massage. In a recent interview, the dancing daddy discussed the pressure to succeed the late King of Pop: 

“You know, we lost Michael Jackson. A lot of pressure is on me and I don’t mind taking it. I wanted to make sure that you get that type of experience that leaves you saying, ‘OMG’. The impression that I would like to leave is that this guy is really stepping it up to a level where people can hopefully compare me to people like Michael Jackson. I basically tear myself apart emotionally, energetically, connecting with you and making sure that you enjoy this moment.” 

What do you think? Is Usher crazy for even having a sting of stress about taking MJ’s place on the throne?
