I agree. Of course, we all know that Usher meant what he said in a positive way, and that's fine. But even if David Beckham said the same thing in a positive way as well, it wouldn't go over well in the public eye. That's just the way it is. Amongst friends, we can say things to each other like this, and it would be fine. But definitely not in public.
