Usher Thinks His Music Is Revolutionary

He sure must think highly of himself!

Usher is preparing to start a revolution with his music.

Yep.

The OMG singer is currently working on a new album, which he says will be "Revolutionary Pop."

He adds:

"I'm a consumer of culture and love mixing styles and inspirations, both in my music and my style. I'm working on a new genre of music—Revolutionary Pop—which combines several music genres to create a new sound experience."

And with his new fauxhawk, Usher thinks his new look will match his new sound perfectly. "I love that people are talking about the new hair, it represents who I am now and the creative movement of Revolutionary Pop," he says.

Is his music catchy? Sure. Revolutionary? Hmm, we're not sure about that. We'll just have to wait and see until the new album comes out.

    He's so funny. He probly still feeling the pressure of replacing MJ. LOL



  2. 2

    Just my opinion, but I think he's soooo ugly and his music sucks.



  3. 3

    never considered Him any more then a poor man's Micheal Jackson…He doesn't even have ONE song that's Memorable



  4. 4

    He needs to fucking get over himself . Revolutionary pop ? wtf ? this from the same guy who sweats the atlantic ocean just by 2 stepping on stange ? he does not have the energy ,the voice,or the music to even be considered a pop star.He is just too hideous for words.



  5. 5

    omg. this dude is so full of himself. im the next michael jackson, yaall. id rather die on a plane with booger poppn Britney spears



  6. 6

    he's pretty extra stupid.



  7. 7

    I think both Usher and Kanye seriously need to go to rehab for their big heads!!! They are both overrated, they are not doing anything that the next singer/rapper is doing!! When either one of them do something I haven't heard before then I will give them some credit!



  8. 8

    you know what's funny? Lady Gaga basically said the same thing about herself and you didn't say a damn thing about her giant ego.



  9. 9

    Hey Usher please up your Meds you Narcissistic little man.



  10. 10

    sure his OLDER music was memorable, back when he did R&b, but now that he's doing this whole pop thing, he sucks. he's trying to be younger but it isn't working.



  11. 11

    he is too over confident i saw him live these year he does not have the energy anymore to be amazing like mj. he won't make it.

    He's one of the cockiest artists out there. It's no wonder Bieber is turning into a mini version of Usher. He's not revolutionary in his music at all. He's always just been a follower and not a very good one at that.



  13. 13

    I bet Homer Simpson would disagree



  14. 14

    What a dumb ass.



  15. 15

    when you have people telling you basically your whole life that you can be the next MJ comments like this will happen. so i dont fault him for thinking this way, i fault the people around him. but in the end…im still a fan.



  16. 16

    Re: truth in life – your joking right? you can honestly sit there and say you cant think of one song?

    Soo I went to his concert in Boston everything I saw he copied from MJ. He wants to be the next MJ. News to you Usher NO ONE WILL EVER REPLACE MICHAEL JACKSON. Not even you Usher!! You are good but not that good!!!Your music like every other singer is good today but will it be good 10 years from now I think not!!Get off your high horse Usher!! I like your music but you are no where near being like MJ



  18. 18

    Maybe he got kicked in the head a little too hard.. hahhaa.. talk about delusional..

  19. ya2 says – reply to this

    Cocky. there will never be another MJ or another Madonna. Get over it future artists, you will never be one of them.



  20. 20

    Can't anyone here READ?…He said he will be mixing different stlyles of music on his next album…revolutionary as far as the different types of music coming together….DAMN.



  21. 21

    This is a little too Kanye-esque for my taste



  22. 22

    Usher should respect the fact that Michael Jackson is a legend in his own right and he should set an example…Michael didn't copy anyone…he was original in his work..and he didn't want anyone copying him….MAKE YOUR OWN WAY USHER!!!



  23. 23

    Usually the really talented are also humble.. Or they don't constantly praise their music and talent.



  24. 24

    He's got an ego, but I think he's right.

    He sure has an ear for hits…look at his track record and his own career and the Biebs.



  25. 25

    "Is his music catchy? Sure. Revolutionary? Hmm, we're not sure about that."
    Well Im sure and it ISN'T! He is just full of himself. He's not even an instrumentalist. Poor child.



  26. 26

    usher is so full of himself…its like how lady gaga and beyonce fans are about them…except hes his own biggest fan.

    hes so talented but that urks me about him…hes a singing, dancing, more respectful kanye west.



  27. 27

    LMFAO Revolutionary my ass. I don't understand why he thinks so highly of himself like do the people around him LIE to him?



  28. 28

    Re: AJSummer
    You sound a little silly saying that. I honestly hate Usher and I'm not a crazy fan of lady gaga either. But Usher does NOT compare to Lady Gagas following.



  29. 29

    Like to hear him sing without outovoice.He cant sing worth a s..t. That last song on the radio sounded like mr. roboto.



  30. 30

    A faux hawk? How edgy! My son had one when he was 4. And that was back in 2004. Way to go Usher



  31. 31

    Will all you haterz stfu already! Usher is an amazing artist and entertainer. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have Bieber in my life and for that I will always be gratefull to him.



  32. 32

    his time has come and and now its gone, he just seems desperate.



  33. 33

    Re: Peyton_82
    Zactly!



  34. 34

    Just like the "revolutionary" dance style that he completely ripped off Michael Jackson?

    When he puts out a new song, I can't tell which of the top 30 RnB singers performed it… sounds just like everything else that is currently out there right now, including Black eyed peas, Ne-yo, Chris Brown, etc.. can't tell one from the other.. Nothing revolutionary about his music, period



  35. 35

    HES SO FULL OF MYSELF,JUST LIKE HIS PROTEGE JUSTIN BIEBER.TWO PEAS IN A POD…..



  36. 36

    He looks like most every Janet Jackson video I've ever had the misfortune to see - not so revolutionary after all.



  37. 37

    MMM HMMM USHER, IT SURE IS. YOU ARE SO CUTTING EDGE IT ALMOST HURTS MY TEETH.



  38. 38

    I HOPE it's revolutionary, and changes Pop culture. The music of the recent years has all been auto-tuned CRAP. However, I don't think Usher of all people will change it for the better. You'd need to scrap that damn voice-perfecting machine that lets ANYBODY sell a record in order to fix it.



  39. 39

    Re: redmond

    I think he's hot but do not care for his music….will be interesting to hear what his new "revolutionary" tunes sound like.



  40. 40

    I believe he is very talented. He works hard in the industry and is for once not a druggie.



  41. 41

    well, he's talented but he's no Terence Trent D'Arby. LOLOL!!! remember how that cat was going to change the face of modern music? HAHAHAHAHA!



  42. 42

    Perez, he's stealing TaeYang, the Korean R&B superstar from the group Big Bang's look!! That faux-hawk shape is Tae Yang's signature 'do!!! Theeeeft!!!



  43. 43

    Would someone usher this fool out the door…what a egotistical idiot.



  44. 44

    Re: blonde bi-otch – scary that you have a kid



  45. 45

    PEREZ:::::::
    I thought you were against bullying?????????

    "HE SURE MUST THINK HIGHly OF HIMSELF"? How about Who does he think he is?

    SAME THING ONLY DIFFERENT

  47. 47

    Re: Eilee – you are such a stupid bi otch…I bet you dropped out of school…get a life you cork soaker!!



  48. 48

    he needs to get over himself
    he SUCKS

  49. @v@ says – reply to this

    Some new music pushing the envelope would be ruddy refreshing. Do it.



  50. 50

    All these idiots know that people will buy whatever they're selling. If you feed people shit long enough they will begin not only to like it, but also ask for seconds and call it fantastic.



  51. 51

    He also thought his mother was wrong….



  52. 52

    you guys hating can go fucking suck it, you take nothing from him.

    i love usher.
    he is an amazing performer and artist.
    i dont think he is the next Micheal,
    he is just usher and i love that and he should just be that. bc thats why his fans love him so much.
    he is trying different things and i like that, look how good OMG did.
    i think he could make revolutionary pop.
    he has done amazing things in his career,
    and im sure he has an idea on how to do it again.
    but perez
    lets say lady gaga said this,
    you would praise and say "AMAZEBALLS" blahblahblah
    your a hypocrite
    you know thats true,



  53. 53

    He looks like he is rocking the Bobby Brown "My Prerogative" Gumby haircut lol.



  54. 54

    That's not ACTUALLY what he said though is it Perez? It is just the name for his new style of music. I actually think out of all the male R&B singers out there that he is still the best.



  55. 55

    It's the SAME STUPID R&B/HIP-HOP GARBAGE…it all sounds the same..PUKE!



  56. 56

    Sorry Ush, but not even Confessions, his best and most iconic album, wasn't even revolutionary, and definitely none of the crap he's been releasing after it. :P



  57. 57

    Re: DeeDee77 – Michael Jackson has a bigger fan base than both of them combined and he never went around claiming Thriller was going to be the best album of the decade, or any of that narccissitic bull. Always humble. Michael's a WAY better artist all around than his carbon copy, and Gaga and has had more success than they can dream of, yet they're the ones the over inflated egos. Sad. Lmao.



  58. 58

    Hey usher michael has already done it your just a bad follower STFU.

  59. 7tizz says – reply to this


    59

    If you really think you have the capacity to be 'revolutionary', then why haven't you done it already? It's not like you're releasing your second, or third album at this point.



  60. 60

    But, YOU DIDN'T SAY SHIT ABOUT LADY GAGA, WHEN SHE CLAIMED HER ALBUM WILL BE THE ALBUM OF THE DECADE. YOU HYPOCRITICAL BITCH.



  61. 61

    There is a real music revolution out there called Post-Bands music , out of Dallas. It's opposed to what rock/rap/country/pop have become. It's a back to basics music that really is revolutionary. Check out the original.



  62. 62

    people, people, he's saying that the genre he is trying to create will be called or considered revolutionary pop, not that his music is. he's just trying to create a new type of music, nothing's wrong with that.



  63. 63

    No :/



  64. 64

    Re: crazyny – why is that scary?



  65. 65

    what a moron………



  66. 66

    ill never be able to look at or listen to him without thinking
    christmas in december wow wow wow give me lots of presents now now now



  67. 67

    Re: iloveaguilera – love your comment!!



  68. 68

    Someone please send this piece of shit to Somalia and let him revolutionize them.



  69. 69

    NEWSFLASH: That bleached pedophile is dead, and we don't want his N I G G E R ass back!



  70. 70

    "Yeah" is pretty classic, but it's his only good song… cmon…



  71. 71

    Haha he has a LOT to learn! He may be famous, but he isn't too bright.

    Genres are not created by some guy who says "I'm gonna create a genre." No. It's a process that evolves over a matter of years. I assure you that this "revolutionary pop" will not catch on. It just doesn't work like that.
