Usher - Usher Is A Big Kid At Heart

Usher is still a ''kid at heart''.

The 'Scream' star loves to play games with four-year-old Usher V and Naviyd Ely, three - his sons with former wife Tameka Foster - and revealed tag and water fights are family favourites.

He told People: ''On Memorial Day (28.05.12), [we had a water fight], we used bottles of water and got totally soaked. Naviyd won. It was a hot day, and it just happened. I love fun times like that.

''The last game we played was 'it.' You know, like tag. The boys love to run around and play games with me; I'm a kid at heart.''

While Usher,33, is devoted to his kids, he admits they do test him sometimes and he has to lay down the law.

He said: ''I took them to my mother's house, she lives about two minutes away from me.

''Naviyd is addicted to peppermint, but he had already had dinner and dessert. So I told him he couldn't have any candy, and he walked off. A couple of minutes later, when he thought I couldn't hear, he was asking my mother if he could open a peppermint candy. He was trying to manipulate the situation.''

Usher releases his seventh studio album 'Looking 4 Myself' today (12.06.12) and promises it's his most personal record to date.

He said: ''I do talk about my relationships. I talk about my shortcomings, my transitions and my tumultuous story. This album is about my evolution. I like talking about what I feel.''

Usher launched 'Looking 4 Myself' in London last night (11.06.12) with a livestream of his concert at the Hammersmith Apollo as part of the 'American Express Unstaged' series. The gig can be viewed at www.youtube.com/UsherVEVO.
