Fame is Usher's wingman

05 June 2012, 13:24

Los Angeles - Usher admits being famous has "benefits" when it comes to women.

The OMG hitmaker - who is currently locked in a bitter custody battle with estranged wife Tameka Foster over their sons Usher Raymond V, four, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, three - is aware some people are only interested in his celebrity status but he can't help but find them attractive.

He said: "There's great benefit that comes with it [being famous]. We can't ignore this thing! Wherever I go I will have some attraction, I can't run away from who I am.

"But it's very hard, like, Man, there's lights everywhere. And some women I've been able to experience or relate to or date or merge with, they run from it."

The singer says one of the biggest things he has learned about women is that they like "confidence" and never wanted to be treated in the same way.

He told Q magazine: "I've learned there's a lot of them and they're all different. So in no way, shape, form or fashion should you ever put them in the same box or category.

"But I've learned what women like. Confidence. And I've learned that there is a softness that only a woman can possess. In their spirit, in their approach, in their passion. And you begin to see it when they have something, like a child, to love. It's irreplaceable."
