Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Today is a big day for Usher, as his brand new album Raymond v. Raymond hits stores today. The Atlanta singer has survived a costly public divorce, a bunch of leaks and the underwhelming performance of his last album Here I Stand to arrive at Raymond v. Raymond. Much like his protegé Justin Bieber, Usher went on “The Late Show With David Letterman” to celebrate the release of his album with a performance of a new single (in Usher’s case, it was “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)”). It was an attention-grabbing, theatrical performance, featuring a handful of lovely ladies and at least one Michael Jackson-esque crotch grab. Usher should have a good couple of weeks, as Bieber’s album is expected to top this week’s Billboard chart and Raymond v. Raymond should do quite well on next week’s chart.
Usher wasn’t the only singer visiting the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York on Monday (March 29), as recent “American Idol” castoff Paige Miles also chatted with the host.
