Usher says he's ready to be the new MJ

Usher has revealed that he is under pressure to be the new Michael Jackson but insists he's ready to take the challenge.

The 'Pop Ya Collar' singer says he feels there is something missing in the music world following the 'Thriller' star's tragic death last June but he is happy to fulfill the void.

"You know, we lost Michael Jackson. A lot of pressure is on me and I don't mind taking it," Contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.

In a bid to become like Jackson, Usher is planning a spectacular tour next year and says it's something the 'King of Pop' himself would have been proud of.

"I wanted to make sure that you get that type of experience that leaves you saying, 'OMG'," he told the Daily Star newspaper.

"The impression that I would like to leave is that this guy is really stepping it up to a level where people can hopefully compare me to people like Michael Jackson.

"I basically tear myself apart emotionally, energetically, connecting with you and making sure that you enjoy this moment," he said.

Jackson died of acute Propofol intoxication aged 50 in June 2009, just days before he was due to start a historic 50-night residency at London's O2 Arena. (ANI)

You rocked my world, you know you did
And everything I own I give
The rarest love who\'d think I\'d find
Someone like you to call mine




"Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation."
------Michael Jackson

I just don't understand why anyone thinks there needs to be "the next Michael Jackson".  Michael is an innovator from the lyrics to the beats, to the videos and everything else in between.  These newer artists need to stop trying to be like him, or anyone else for that matter, and focus on being their own persons.  Music is so manufactured these days that almost nothing seems unique anymore.

Seriously. And we are just looking for another Michael. Wow. In his dreams. And this is supposedly Michael's friend? How stupid can one be. Is world ever known another  Duma, Pushkin, London, Caruso, Paganini, Piaf, Mozart, or  another Elvis? How disgusting this pathetic young man. Let' tweet him as a reminder that NO ONE WILL EVER FILL MICHAEL'S SHOES, this being said, Michael Jackson is The Only King of Pop.

Usher got talent but he will never be the next MJ.  Sorry Usher.  MJ already served Usher at the 2001 anniversary concert.  He was trying to glide like MJ but MJ showed him what's up.  He's like step aside youngster.  These artist just need to be themselves and stick to what they know best.  I hate when people compare legends to the newer generation artist.

Did he really say that?? How pathetic...and I was going to buy his CD, not anymore!

We don't need another MJ..do you remember what LaToya said when asked about who she thinks could "replace" MJ (or something in that sense) and she replied: "there might not be such need". LOL, indeed  ;)

I have always thought that Usher is just a hypocrite, it was obvious for me that he has always wanted to take Michael's place pretending to be his friend and fan he wanted to gain MJ's fans' love and attention in that way,i'm really sorry for him, he is just an unrealistic dreamer.MJ's fans will never ever let anyone else take Michael's crown, never! well, i think he can be another king of pop only in his dreams. Robby Williams, Justin Bieber, and now Usher, whose next!? they really suck!

Seems like such a completely ridiculous statement that there must be something behind it.  Is it yet another publicity stunt to keep MJ's name in the forefront?  I don't really know anything about Usher other than a limited exposure to his music.  But he was at the memorial.  Perhaps he has a larger role in things than we are aware of.  Or he could just have an inflated ego and a poor sense of appropriateness.

I agree...Usher never struck me as someone this vain. He idolized Michael...and to make the statement he could BE the next Michael seems off tilt  :?

What's next? a war between Usher and Chris Brown as to who will be the next "Michael" 8-)

Just like when Will.I.Am and Akon went "toe-to-toe" over Michael's music.....this must be a publicity stunt by Usher....it's too ridiculous and obvious to be otherwise.  :lol:

I agree, there will never be another Michael Jackson and no one will ever be able to fill his shoes no matter how hard they try.  Artist's need to be themselves and strive for their own uniqueness because any imitation of MJ is going to be just that - an imitation.  There is nothing wrong with being inspired by someone else but don't try to be that person.  Someone who is genuinely talented should be able to make their own impact.

Agree with you.  Usher would not say that he can be the next MJ..MJ was more than just a great entertainer and those are shoes that will sad to say will never be filled completely...they would need a pure soul for # 1 ;)

We don't need a new Michael Jackson.....we just need Michael Jackson!

There will never be another Michael Jackson, no matter how hard people try to dance like him, sing like him, be like him.  Usher always looks too stiff and dances too heavy to even come close to Michael's amazing, gliding, angel like, and beat driven moves.  

Usher....you may rock, but you will never be like the King of Pop!   :lol:
