Oprah‘s interviewing magic was never lost when she ended her talk show of 25 years to take on her OWN network; she just didn’t have the programming to yield high ratings. Fortunately with OWN’s Next Chapter, Oprah has struck gold by interviewing household names like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, 50 Cent and next up, Usher. Beyond Usher’s No. 1 Looking 4 Myself there’s been headlines galore of Usher’s divorce, ugly custody battle and the loss of his stepson. He’s kept quiet about his personal life over the last three years. That is until Queen Oprah called. Let’s face it, you don’t turn down an opportunity to sit on the couch with Mother O.
In the sneak peek of this Sunday’s Next Chapter interview Usher divulges it all, but vowing to never talk about any of it again. Leave it to Oprah to lighten up the serious mood of the interview with a question that we all want to know. “Does he make love to his own music?” she teases. Usher laughs slyly. Yes, folks, O went there! And we can’t wait to find out if Usher gets it on to “Can U Handle It?” We’re not even sure we can handle the answer to this query, but we’ve got to know.
