R+B hunk Usher has vowed to hide his body in future music videos, because he fears fans prefer ogling his muscular physique to listening to his songs.

The U GOT IT BAD hitmaker, who once dated supermodel Naomi Campbell, resents his sex symbol status and insists his music should come first.

He says, "The focus has moved too far from my music to my body.

"As a serious artist I have to address that."
