Usher Refuses To Sell Baby Pictures

R+B star USHER has blasted stars who strike million-dollar deals for exclusive baby pictures - insisting he would never use his child to make money.
The singer was rumoured to have attempted to sell pictures of his five-month-old son with wife Tameka Foster, Usher Raymond V.
But Usher is adamant he would never follow in the footsteps of new parents Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera, all of whom appeared on magazine front covers holding their offspring in return for a large sum of money.
Usher has instead posed for free on the cover of a special Father's Day edition of Essence magazine.
He tells the New York Post's PageSix.com, "In no way would I ever pimp out my child for money. I am livid that people talk about my child.
"What makes you a man more than being a father to your child? I recognize I gave anonymity away when I became an artist, but to have people try to paint a horrible picture of what's so beautiful - it's obvious someone is trying to stop something so beautiful."
