NEW YORK (AP) – One of Usher’s sons studies his dance moves meticulously, while the other has said to the Grammy-winning star: “You’re not a great singer.”
Usher says his son Nayvid Ely Raymond, who turns seven in December, isn’t impressed with the multi-platinum singer.
“He doesn’t care about what I do as much… He’s like, ‘I’m the star. Who are you? You sing?’” Usher said in a recent interview.
“He told me the other day, he says, ‘You’re not a great singer’,” Usher, 36, continued with a laugh. His reply to his son: “What? I’m a great singer!”
Usher said his son, who was named after him, has taken to his father’s dance talents.
“When seeing me perform on tour in the past… and most of the time it’s past his bedtime, but he’s just sitting there studying every move, every second, like laser focus,” he said of Usher Raymond V. “And then I’ll see him off by himself doing the moves.”
Usher will showcase his sharp choreography on his UR Expe-rience World Tour, which kicks off in Montreal. He said the tour was influenced by live shows he’s seen from U2, Bruce Springsteen and Frankie Beverly.
