Usher-ing In A New Era on TRL

Although Usher may have the smoothest moves on the dance floor, he's not always picture-perfect. Like on yesterday's TRL, when he accidentally confused "plugging his new album" with "talking incessantly about his wife." MTV News reports:

During a segment of Tuesday's show, Usher launched into an impromptu rant that found him dismissing reports that he and his wife were separating..."I love my wife very, very much," he said. "There was a little rumor earlier this week about us separating. It ain't true. We in love. Get outta there," he said, raising his left hand and showing off his wedding band.

Well played, Usher! You've got to take your opportunities where you can find them, even when it does make for awkward television. But next time you feel like going on a spontaneous tirade about your totally not-problematic marriage, you might want to rethink the whole wearing-sunglasses-indoors thing. Seriously. I'm all for making a fashion statement, but to me, that one screams "Help! I'm overcocky and my quickie marriage is a sham."
