Between Iyanla Vanzant’s continued interview with Evelyn Lozada of “Basketball Wives” and Oprah’s “Next Chapter” interview with R&B star Usher, the Interwebs were all abuzz with commentary last night. We were watching, too, and we’ve sort of come to the conclusion that Usher’s relationship with his mother, Jonetta Patton, is, well … weird. And we weren’t the only ones.
It’s nothing that we haven’t seen before. Everybody knows a man who is a mama’s boy to an undealwithable degree (we just made that word up; you’re welcome to use it), and compared to Lil Scrappy’s mom, Momma Dee, this may be a light case. But, it’s a case nonetheless. There were too many “wait, what?” moments in that interview once Usher’s mama joined the show (not that there was a lack of them before she sat down), and in no particular order, here’s the one that got our eyebrows raised the highest.
