Following hot on the heels of last week’s launch of Diddy‘s newest fragrance, Unforgivable Woman, platinum-selling singer Usher became the latest musician to enter the scent market, with his aptly named "Usher."
“Diddy has been so supportive of me,” Usher revealed to OK! when we caught up with him at NYC’s Cipriani’s 23rd Street for the party to celebrate the fragrance’s release. And with such support from his hip-hop entrepreneur pal, Usher also tells OK! that he’d have no problem with his new bride Tameka Foster wearing Unforgivable Woman. “I can’t stop her,” he laughs. “Whatever she wants to wear would be great.”
Speaking of women that are hard to forgive, the launch party also served as a peace ceremony between Usher and his mom Jonetta Patton, who chose not to attend her son’s Labor Day Weekend wedding, reportedly out of protest against Tameka, who is almost 10 years Usher’s senior. But when Usher thanked the guests for coming, he made special note of his mother, saying, “I introduced her earlier as Jonetta, but she is my momma.”
As for his own inspiration behind his fragrance Usher says, “I wanted it to be something that would supply the sophisticated woman with her scent and supply the sexy woman with her scent.”
