Yikes! Single dad Usher is opening up about his custody battle with his ex-wife Tameka Foster and well, it isn’t pretty. The chart topper sat down with Oprah in a rare interview to discuss life with his two boys and how he is coping with single fatherhood. He says:
“Let’s put aside all of the issues that come with being a celebrity and having married someone that people don’t approve of. You have at-home problems with communication, with understanding of how things go. It is hard being married.”
“I didn’t know how to balance it. It was obviously too much for me,” he explained. “I didn’t want to get to the point where I would cause myself harm or do anything that I felt like would be harmful to me, so I couldn’t stay in it.”
“Having not had a father wasn’t a reason not to be a good father. That was all of the reason to be a good father because I didn’t have one. Every bit of who I have become and the way I think I have handled these things represents the example for how I would like for my boys to be able to do things.”

According to 14-year-old Paris Jackson, it doesn’t get any easier after having lost her father, Michael Jackson almost three years ago.
“It never gets easier,” Paris says in a promotional spot aired by OWN, which also shows Winfrey asking if Michael Jackson wanted her to have “a quote `normal’ life.”
Paris and her brothers, Prince and Blanket, were closely sheltered during Jackson’s life but have been in the public eye since, appearing onstage at Grammy Awards and on other TV shows.
What do you think? Would Michael would have liked to have seen his children so openly exposed to the media after he worked so hard to shelter them when he was alive?

Could Lady Gaga be hanging up her microphone soon to start a family? That’s what it seems to be as the chart topper hinted in an interview with Oprah that she’s ready to start a family soon and raise a “soccer team” of kids.
Feeling very maternal, the Mother Monster told the popular chat show host during her interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter:
“Yes, I want kids, I want a soccer team and I want a husband. eah, I do. Well, you know, I’m being superfluous. I don’t want to have one kid. I want to have a few.”
“I want to experience that,” she said making a baby bump with her hands and laughing, “[but] not yet.”
We actually think that Lady Gaga would make a great mom – if not an eccentric one! She seems to care very much about her fans and her family so there’s no doubt that she’d make a fantastic mother when her time comes, too.
