What could David Letterman & Usher possibly have in common, other than their celebrity status? Both are "currently married" NEWLYWEDS at that. Letterman finally recently married a lady he dated for 20 years. Usher hasn't been married more years than he has children (2). Usher is currently in the midst of a divorce & Letterman is in the midst of an extortion case. Which do you think is worse?
Letterman was recently "black balled" into admitting he had sexual relations with women EMPLOYED on his television show staff, while he was in a relationship with his now current wife. Someone that knew Letterman's dirty work threatened to make a screen play airing all of Letterman's dirty laundry. Letterman decided he would rather publicly confess & snitch on his extortionist than suffer public scrutiny by the hands of another.
Meanwhile, seems like Usher is about to have a #1 single on the billboard chart. His newest single "papers" is getting a lot of buzz! He seems to ALSO be airing his own dirty laundry. Here are a few lines from the lyrics...."Only time you are here for me is when the bottles are poppin and everything is alright......I'm tired of sleeping in the other room (SMH).....I done damn near lost my momma....I've turned into the man I've never thought I would...Ready to sign them PAPERS". Usher then goes further to say "I can't deny I Love you".
I guess...."What's love got to do with it?" You are married, with children, and you love her...but you've had enough in less than a couple of years and you're ready to sign "them papers". What is Usher to do??? Fight for his marriage, for his LOVE (that he can't deny), for his family (he had spread across the cover of Essence/Ebony)? Or sign them papers because his mom never approved and his friends can't recognize him, and because he's turned into the "family man" that he sang so lovely about on his last album?
What's the difference between Letterman and Usher? Letterman says his wife is very hurt by this recent surge of information and that he "has his work cut out for him" to work on repairing his marriage. He even joke about it on the taping of this Monday's "Late show". Not saying that Usher did not try to work on his marriage, he could've had issues from the jump...ya know in between babies. All we can go on is what the entertainers decide to put out there for us to go off on. I wish both men & women much love & happiness.
Do you still believe in Magic...I mean Marriage??!? I am currently single (happily single) but I guess...I mean I think I still believe in a Happily Ever After!! Even being from a broken home I grew up with married Aunts & Uncles. You may still have your grandparents who have been married forever with 10 children :). That's a kind of Love I want to believe in. And I will take my time to find it. Call me old fashion. TRUE STORY, I had a guy friend I knew for over a year. We would kick it off & on. About two weeks after our last visit he was tagged in wedding pictures on Facebook. HIS OWN wedding with a pregnant wife. I felt sooo bad, not for me, but for his wife. I don't know maybe it took only about two weeks to plan the wedding ( I have an issue with trying to give everyone the benefit of the doubt).
Do you believe True love still exsisit? Is there a sanctity of marriage? Is it still relevant in our society or is a "try" a "try" , a divorce is a divorce? As we may have grown up with grandparents/parents with 50 year wedding anniversaries our younger generations is singing "Sign them papers". Will you be ready to sign those papers when its your turn? What are you doing to avoid those papers? Can you even avoid the papers? Hell some people get married just for those papers (green papers *cough Khole*)
I don't know, love is a crazy thing! As for me ill sing Chrisette Michele "Golden" until I think I've figured it out. "Be the man of my dreams and get down on one knee love..ill be everything that this woman could possibly be, cause I'm ready to be like the olden days when comittment was GOLDEN...NO typical American shady LOVE"
Are you in LOVE? Id love to hear about it. Inspire me & someone else...comment.
