A student from Morehouse College has a bone to pick with Usher. Kameron Glasper filed a lawsuit with DeKalb Superior Court to reclaim control over the songs he wrote for a publishing company. One of these songs jsut so happens to be Monstar,from Usher’s 2010 album, Raymond vs. Raymond.
Glasper claims he signed a contract with Legendary Poets Music Publishing in October of 2009 to write 10 songs for them. Unfortunately, in the process, he signed away half of his interest in the tracks.
Kameron said that when he signed away his royalties, he was taken advantage of and vulnerable due to his desire to want to work in the music industry. According to YR, he also said that Bethel Harris, the owner of the publishing company, claimed to be “the only person that Usher Raymond’s representatives would negotiate with for the song Monster.”
Glasper is seeking 100 percent ownership of the songs he wrote and wants Legendary Poets to reimburse him for legal fees affiliated with this case.
Singer Usher Raymond and his sons got into the Halloween spirit a little early. The “OMG” singer was spotted at a pumpkin patch on October 14, 2010. Not only was Usher celebrating Halloween with the kids, but he was also celebrating his birthday. The boys enjoyed some quality tie with daddy and got their faces painted.
New Music Video: OMG- Usher ft. Will.I.Am and pictures from Usher’s ‘Good Morning America’ performance
The video for Usher’s song “OMG” featuring Will.I.Am, premiered on March 29. The song and the video have Will.I.Am written all over it. It’s just weird that this video was released right after “Lil Freak”; they couldn’t e any more opposite. I’m not a fan of this this one unfortunately.
