Tameka Raymond Talks Charity, Fields Questions On UsherPublished by Runteldat on Monday, April 5, 2010 at 3:00 pm.
Tameka Raymond appeared on CNN yesterday to discuss her charity, Lost Ones. The Oakland native discussed why she felt compelled to start the charity and how she hopes to help the lives of young girls out there suffering.
As she explained to CNN anchor, Don Lemon, ”In my family I had mentors but I look at so many girls who don’t have that same opportunity.”
Though she was there to talk charity, chatter about her divorce and relationship with ex-husband Usher surfaced.
When asked about the title of Usher’s new album, Raymond vs. Raymond, Tameka said:
“I think that he’s probably talking about himself vs. himself. Everyone has two personalities, two sides of them. You know, I think any great artist I think the music will hopefully reflect what’s going on in their personal life. There are some things that are similar, but most aren’t.”
She also described the criticism about her as “harsh” and “unfair.”
Tameka answered her questions calmly and respectfully, but tried to shift focus back to talk about her charity. At this point we get the idea: They’re divorced. I know Lemon had to ask the questions, but Tameka came on to talk about her charity, not Usher.
Is she always going to have to end up talking about him in interviews?
