It was reported yesterday that Usher allegedly paid a woman $1.1 million in “hush money” because he — whoops — gave her herpes.
Some fans may be shocked by this news, but when you stop and think about it, it does explain some of Usher’s song titles. Songs like …
U Got It Bad (Herpes, I’m Referring to Herpes)
Yeah! (Is What I Should Have Said When You Asked If I Had Herpes)
(I Am So Sorry About That) Burn(ing Sensation)
Pop Ya Collar (And Ya Zovirax)
Confessions Part 1 (I Have Herpes)
Confessions Part 2 (And Now So Do You)
