Usher Hits Out At West Reports

LATEST: R+B star USHER is furious over reports he attacked KANYE WEST's controversial comments about US President GEORGE W BUSH, insisting he's in full support of the rap star.

The YEAH! singer was quoted as saying the Grammy-winning rapper was wrong to point attack Bush during a telethon for Hurricane Katrina victims earlier this month (SEP05), where West accused the US leader of being a racist.

But Usher now says in statement, "Contrary to false media reports, I support the personal opinions made by my friend Kanye West.

"If it wasn't for his comments, there would not be an open dialogue about the undeserved people in the Gulf Region.

"Our country is in a state of emergency - instead of the media trying to turn celebrities against one another - we should all come together as one and support the victims of this devastating tragedy. Let's all be a blessing to those in need."
