Usher Says Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Get Right’ Was His First

Sunday, January 23rd, 2005

Ask Usher what he thinks of Jennifer Lopez new single “Get Right” and he might say “that’s just wrong.” Fox News is reporting that Usher already recorded “Get Right” as a single called “Ride.” The song wasn’t featured on his smash album Confessions, but it was released as a 12-inch club record and on the Internet last year. In fact, both “Ride” and “Get Right” were produced by Rich Harrison who is said to have used the same horn track on both songs.

Lopez’ single was released as “Get Right” because it’s mixed with a rap record with the same name by Fabolous.

Usher is reportedly furious about Lopez’s release. When he was asked about her version of the song Fox News claims he said, “I hate it. And I’d better get some of the publishing (rights).

PARIS (AFP) – Pop diva Jennifer Lopez, rhythm and blues sensation Usher, and Irish rockers U2 will be in the French Riviera resort of Cannes on Saturday for the 2005 NRJ Music Awards, France’s glam answer to the Grammys.

Lopez will sing “Get Right”, the first single off her upcoming album “Rebirth”. The CD, due out on March 1, features a guest appearance by Lopez’s new husband, Latin crooner Marc Anthony.

Usher, whose “Confessions” was the top-selling album in the United States in 2004 with nearly eight million copies sold, will also perform at the flashy ceremony, to be broadcast live on French private television network TF1.

NRJ is one of France’s most popular radio stations, and more than five million listeners have cast ballots in 13 categories — six French-language, six international and the video of the year — ahead of Saturday’s ceremony.

Jennifer Loves the Comfort of Home

Wednesday, January 19th, 2005

JENNIFER LOPEZ has quashed her reputation as a frequent party-goer, insisting her ideal evening is spent in front of the TV.
Jennifer – who married Latino singer MARC ANTHONY – no longer craves star-studded Hollywood events, preferring instead to invite pals over for a night of small screen entertainment.

She says, “I’m a good hostess, so we have lots of nights in watching SEX AND THE CITY. We sit by the pool, listen to music and chat.”

But she’s just as happy taking advantage of home comforts alone: “I like to snuggle up in my pajamas in front of a fire and watch a movie. I always go for the funnier stuff. I love comedies, like DEUCE BIGALOW: MALE GIGOLO – it’s one of my favourite films and it kills me everytime I watch it.”
