Usher Stole Candy From Obama

USHER has recalled his frosty first meeting with U.S. President-elect BARACK OBAMA - when the pair battled over a candy bar.
The R+B star built up an appetite after spending a day campaigning with the future president and had his eyes firmly fixed on a snack left in Obama's car.
But Obama was also determined to nab the sweet, sparking a friendly battle between the pair.
Usher tells MTV, "The first time we met, we actually were in transit in his car... kind of rolling. And, I'm starving, 'cause I hadn't really ate.
"We had been campaigning all day, all over the place, and I kind of look around and I'm like, 'Oooh, let me eat this candy bar or whatever.
"And we both look at it, and I'm like, 'You're not gonna eat that, are you?' and he's like, 'You're not gonna eat it, are you?' I'm like, 'Well, I'm gonna eat it if you don't.' So I grab and I tear it open - I took the man's meal."
