Movies & TV

Usher recently stopped by the Rickey Smiley Morning Show in Atlanta to talk about being a father; what he makes his children for lunch; his new album; and the topic we’ve all been anxiously waiting for him to comment on … getting back with Chilli.

Check out a few excerpts from the interview below.

On his upcoming album:

“I’m not finished with it yet. I just put out one record, “Climax.” But working on it has been incredible. I’m just working on some different things, and trying some different styles of music; just touching on different genres, but still keeping the soul in it. “Climax” is just a small indication of what you’ve got to look forward to.”

On what he makes his kids for lunch:

I cook a mean hot dog. And I’m really good with re-cooking [pre-made meals].”

On getting back with Chilli:

“I don’t know. I don’t think that we would get back together. It’s been a long time… It didn’t really work out. She’s a sweet girl, though. I was talking to her not too long ago… Realistically we all have something that we feel like we should have done better or different. But I don’t really live with regret. I’m living in the moment. You gotta live through your mistakes. If you don’t appreciate something at one time, then hopefully it’ll come back around… It’s all in the aesthetic. There’s certain little nuances in a relationship that you might not get in others.”
