Why Usher’s Interview with Oprah was a Winner


A sit down on Oprah’s Next Chapter is the place to go when celebrities need an image fix-me-up. Rihanna did it, Kim Kardashian did it and now Usher is reaping the benefits of sitting down with Lady O. His candid interview Sunday (Sept. 16) still has us reeling with its tart honesty. It was the first time that the usually private singer truly opened up about his personal life and kept it all the way 100–presumably to the chagrin of his publicist—and we salute him for that. We dissect why this interview redeemed the beleaguered superstar and has us falling in love with him all over again. — Sowmya Krishnamurthy (@SowmyaK)
