Usher parties with British singers for 34th birthday
R&B star Usher said he still feels 21, despite just celebrating his 34th birthday.
The singer partied in London with a host of British singing talent Saturday night before his birthday Sunday, including Leona Lewis, Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal and JLS star Ortise Williams. But Usher says that’s not where the party is going to end.
“It’s really going to be a party celebration week as opposed to weekend,” he said.
In London to promote the computer game “Dance Central 3” for Xbox, Usher also talked about his decision to put his European tour dates on hold in order to “do something really creative.”
The American R&B star is joining the judging panel on the American talent show “The Voice,” a role he said he can’t wait to fill.
“I haven’t really had the chance to show people what I do behind the scenes in regards to mentoring, so this will kind of give you a different perspective” about me, he told AP.
