Take THAT, J. Lo!

Good for Usher! It's about time someone said something about the ridiculous practice of demanding huge sums of cash for a picture of a stupid "celebrity baby", one that we'll eventually HAVE TO SEE anyway. He said:

In no way would I ever pimp out my child for money,” Usher told Page Six. The pop singer - upset by rumors he was trying to sell photos of his infant son, Usher Raymond V, and eager to defend his wife, Tameka, and his upcoming album, “Here I Stand” - wants to set the record straight.

“I am livid that people talk about my child,” Usher told us. In fact, he has posed - for free - with his son for an “incredible” Father’s Day cover for Essence magazine.
