Usher Talks Tour With Mary J. Blige And, Perhaps, Janet Jackson

Usher is one busy artist. Just off the heels of recent European dates and Puff Daddy's "No Way Out Tour" last fall, the double platinum-selling, Grammy nominated singer is about to head out on the road yet again.

This time around, Usher is co-headlining with R&B diva Mary J. Blige. Their joint-jaunt begins March 25 in Detroit.

Wednesday night on the Grammy red carpet, Usher confirmed his plans to MTV News about his impending tour with Ms. Blige and his hope to tour with Janet Jackson.

"It's a definite go on the Mary J. Blige/Usher tour. And it's up in the air right now with Janet, but, you know, nine times out of ten, it'll happen. I'm hopeful" [600k QuickTime].
