Just as the feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West died down over the weekend, Kim Kardashian West revived it with a VERY specific video.
And now, Usher is opening it back up, too, by commenting on the case where Yeezy used his name in a song — 2005's hit single Gold Digger.
Video: Usher Wants Politicians To Stop Using His Music!
In that song, of course, 'Ye uses a lyric with a direct reference to Usher when he rapped:
"My best friend says she use to f*ck with Usher."
But the 37-year-old R&B star, who spoke about that song on a radio interview in Australia on Monday, laughed off the comparison with Swift, refusing to worry that Yeezy used his name.
Usher told Melbourne radio station Nova 100 (below):
This is too perfect!
Donald Trump has had a wacky habit of using any ol' song he wants on the campaign trail this year, all without permission. And musicians are getting really tired of it!
Thankfully, a few of them partnered up with John Oliver on Last Week Tonight to FINALLY do something about it!

On Sunday night's episode on HBO, Oliver opened up the segment explaining how politicians have pretty much co-opted pop and rock music on the campaign trail, before giving way to an amazing group of artists singing a NEW song about the problem!
Led by Usher, the funny music video included riffs from Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Cyndi Lauper, Josh Groban, and Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons — and it delivered a VERY clear message to politicians: stop using our songs!!!

Talk about leaving a paper trail…
Yesterday we told you Usher's stalker Darshelle Jones was arrested earlier this month for standing outside of an Atlanta recording studio trying to film the U Got It Bad performer with her iPad — clearly violating the restraining order that says she must stay at least 200 yards away from the singer.
Well, turns out, cops didn't get to Jones before she could share some snaps to her Instagram page! She clearly gives zero f*cks.

Jones was obviously trying to make her presence known to Usher as she geotagged herself at the studio and even mentioned him in several posts.
In one picture, the obsessed fan takes a photo of the R&B crooner's Range Rover from behind a bush:
Daaamn, Darshelle… back at it again with stalking Usher!
Remember back in 2012 when the 37-year-old singer was forced to get a restraining order against longtime stalker Darshelle Jones after she broke in his home twice claiming to be his wife? She's BACK!

She still remains in custody after being booked for aggravated stalking.
