  People seem to think Usher’s new “Confessions” track has a line about him admitting to having herpes; but  Jermaine Dupri ain’t having it! JD says they all need to listen a little closer because they’ve got it all wrong.
Jermaine cleared the air today about the speculation surrounding “Confessions Part III,” which Usher teased during a live gig this week. One particular line in the song has been widely interpreted to be a confirmation about his alleged STD.
On the new track, Usher sings, “You said bae let me take you to the ER, I said, ‘Nah, Imma be alright / Well the next day I found out from f*cking around that the sickness I had was life.”
Don’t let that sickness lyric fool you, according to JD — who has teamed up with Usher to produce a new sequel album to his 2004 smash hit project. Jermaine says,
“I see y’all trippin… CONFESSIONS PART 3 is from a females perspective.”
JD adds, “The song is about a girl cheatin’ on him and gettin’ pregnant by another man. She is then being stuck with the decision to keep or abort it. Now that he knows, Should he stay or Leave ???”
Get it? “The sickness I had was life” refers to a baby … not to being sick FOR life.
