Meet Usher V in Essence Magazine

Meet Usher V in Essence Magazine

In the last year, you got married and you’ve had a baby. Which has changed you more? : “They’re both linked—I can’t have one without the other. But the one thing that changed me the most is having a wife. Our child is an extension of that union.”

Why? : “Because now I represent what he is to become. He’s gonna admire me, he’s gonna look up to me. He’s gonna say, “I wanna be”—or he should say— “I wanna be like my father. I wanna be a man of valor. I wanna possess what my father has as a man.” To get married was a choice. To have a child is a responsibility.”

Does that new responsibility challenge you to make music that is more responsible? : “I started making Here I Stand before I had my son and before I was married. It was a deliberate choice to make music with substance, not just about the things that we’re accustomed to—music about being the celebrity, the player, or having the car, the girl and the bling.”

Your father wasn’t around to raise you. How do you plan to be different for your son than your father was for you? : “Just simply being there. I don’t judge my father because I forgave him for anything he’d ever done to hurt me unintentionally. My father and I had a very short amount of time together throughout my entire life, but the most valuable time was during his final days. He asked me to forgive him for not being there. He asked me to give him a chance, give him a shot because he loved me, and he had always loved me. But it was very difficult for him to be in the situation he was in and be the example he wanted me to follow. So he intentionally stayed away. And he was kept away from me too. He didn’t like it, but he didn’t fight it because he knew he wasn’t living right.”

What would you say to young men and women about what they should expect from a man who’s a father? What is living right as a father? How do you define that? How would that man look? : “That man would accept his responsibilities as a father, regardless of whether he was with the mother of the child. Men will leave a situation for several reasons. One, it’s not comfortable. It may be violent. The two of you may grow apart. But you should never abandon that responsibility, which is to be there, reading with your child, being supportive of your child’s growth. That is communicating. That is making the choice to put your child before your own vanity.”

If you could take your finger and touch your 9-month-old son, Usher V, on the head and impart some certain knowledge, what would you want him to know? : “First of all, I’d actually look inside myself and evaluate what I felt like I missed from my own father.”

What did you miss? : “Knowing that I was accepted. That I mattered. And hearing that he cared enough to put me before himself.”

Catherine Bell On Motherhood & Turning 40

catherine_bell.jpg

Army Wives star Catherine Bell sits down with OK! for an interview in between shots, and chats about being a mom to daughter Gemma, 5, and how she “might want to” have another child.

On waiting 10 years into marriage to have a child: “My husband and I got married young. Then I hit 34 and it kicked in, “Oh my god, I want a baby so bad.” I got this radar where I would feel babies before they came into the room, so I knew I was ready.”

On the best part of being a mom: “When Gemma she comes up out of the blue and gives me a big hug and tells me she loves me, it’s really cool. She’s so sweet and loving. It’s fun to watch her grow and get her own ideas and opinions.”

On balancing work and motherhood: “It’s something I’m always striving to do better, and I make Gemma a priority. If I’m working long days, I’ll make sure my husband brings her and we hang out together on the set. If I have a half-day, I’ll pick her up from school and we’ll have a cupcake together. It’s not so much about the quantity, but the quality of time we spend together.”

On having more children: “We go back and forth. I’m an only child, so I’m fine with that. But I just loved every aspect of the last five years with Gemma. I might want to do it again.”

On turning 40 this year: “I think it’s great. For me, I do think every decade has gotten better. The 20s were the toughest because you’re trying to figure out what you’re going to do in your life, and the 30s you’re settling in. In your 40s, you have all the maturity and wisdom and you leave the rest behind. I certainly feel in better shape than I’ve ever been, and I feel more alive and energetic.”
