Me, Usher and Lisa in 2000
It’s been 10 years since I left the industry and truth-be-told I don’t go to many big concerts anymore, so last night I got an education. Here are four things I learned …
I’m OLD. Ok, that might be a little harsh, but at 39 I’m definitely a little more seasoned than I was the last time I attended an Usher concert. I knew the words to all the songs, even to that little cutie Trey Songz who opened up for him, but I’m not quite sure I was dressed appropriately which leads me to my next discovery.
The FREAKS come out at night. Or, apparently to a Trey Songz/Usher concert. There was more booty bouncin’ than I thought Phillips Arena could handle. Thigh-high boots, tights and barely-covering-that-ass skirts were all the rage.
A SISTERS night out is still fun. My sister, Nicole, and I left our husbands at home with the kids and braved the cold and the freaks together. We had a blast, and a beer, ahem, and a great time
All bundled up. It’s COLD for Atlanta.
In between sets. We both stood out because we didn’t have any skin showing – gasp!
“Peace Up, A-Town Down.” See, I still know the cool lingo.
Usher should be in my running PLAYLIST. I worked several of his records but still forget how many hits he has. OMG. DJ Got Us Fallin In Love. Yeah. Caught Up. U Remind Me. You Make Me Wanna. Bad Girls. The list could go on.
Anyone else have Usher in their playlist? ... Or, discover they are not as young as they used to be over the weekend?
