Janet Jackson isn’t the only artist adding lingerie designer to her resume. Usher, who already has two successful men’s and women’s fragrances, is now starting his own intimates line. While sitting front-row at the Marlies Dekkers Lingerie show in Paris this weekend, the R&B singer told WWD, “You may have heard that I might be launching a lingerie line for men and woman. Comfort and intimacy is very important.” There is no launch date yet, but some of Usher’s lingerie designs are featured in his new “Trading Places” video. We’re excited to see what Usher comes up with. Tell us: Would you wear Usher’s lingerie?

Not another celebrity jumping on the “design” bandwagon! I’ll have to admit, I’m totally biased: I dislike Usher and I think his “music” is terrible. I’m not too crazy about his “talents” being formatted into another spectrum. Just save the designing for fashion school graduates, please.

why would Usher (a very talented singer) ever want to create lingerie for women? one word.

YES I WOULD BUY HIS LINGERIE AS LONG AS HIS WIFE DONT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT AND I HOPE HE IS`NOT EVEAN THINKING NAMING IT AFTER HIS NAME IT SHOULD BE CALL CONFESSIONS BECOUSE HE STILL HAVE A LOT OF CONFESSION TO SAY.OPSS HER

No I wouldn’t wear it because I can’t afford it. Like all the others, he is just giving his name and not actually designing the product. Oh, and he will make huge amounts of money.

he is disgusting, ugly and no-talent. The worse part is that he is an egocentric a-hole. No, thank you.

Haters are going to hate and that’s what they are there for. I would definitely buy Usher’s lingerie. If its as sexy as him, I’ll buy all of it! LOL! Seriously though, I commend anyone who is willing to grow and not just stick to one thing. If you have talent of any sort, use it. Make that money Usher!!!
