Usher branded 'disrespectful'
Usher has been blasted as "disrespectful" by his former producer, Jermaine Dupri.
Jermaine - who was behind the 'OMG' singer's 2004 album 'Confessions'- said he will have no more to do with usher because he feels he snubbed him when it came to making his latest album 'Raymond Vs Raymond'.
He said: "Well, I didn't really want to be executive producer of Usher's projects after 'Confessions'.
"You sold more records than any other artist in this decade based on that album and now I have to ask Usher, 'Am I the executive producer of your next album?' That seems disrespectful to me."
"As a producer, it's kind of hard for me to go back into people's projects when I gave you your biggest album ever."
Jermaine - the ex-boyfriend of Janet Jackson - added he expects people to ask him to produce them, which is what has led him to work with younger artists, such as Hot Dollar and Rocko.
He added: "I don't feel like I'm supposed to ask to produce anymore. People are supposed to come to me and tell me that I'm the executive producer. That's why I get more kicks working with younger artists."
Despite his comments, Jermaine co-wrote the track 'Foolin' Around' on 'Raymond Vs Raymond'.
Jermaine is also presently working with Mariah Carey on the follow up to her last album 'Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel'.Posted on 6 May 2010 07:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
