Usher made his much anticipated stage debut this week in the Broadway musical Chicago. Usher plays the singing shyster lawyer Billy Flynn and drew some famous guests to come watch the opening performance such as Penelope Cruz, Gabrielle Union, Haylie Duff (who also performs on Broadway), Rosie Perez and singer Amerie.
People magazine caught up with the 27 year old star at the celebratory after-party and Usher had this to say about his Broadway experience: “Broadway is like a monogamous relationship. Doing anything else, like acting in Hollywood – which is great – it’s like a one-night stand. You do it and then you keep moving.”
Okay, so from that comment alone it’s hard to tell what Usher really thinks about his new Broadway gig- or relationships and monogamy for that matter. For a guy who sings a lot about confessing to his girlfriend he got somebody else pregnant and ‘letting it burn’ it would be interesting to know what he’s passionate about nowadays- and if a weird comparison like that means the whole ‘commitment’ thing might spread into his personal life???
Seeking new ‘Boo’ for the long haul? We’ll see.
