Usher: King of PopTarts?

3/8/2007 1:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Usher revealed just what a huge star he is, during an outing in New York on Wednesday.

While some have labeled Usher Michael Jackson's successor as the new King of Pop, it appears the R&B star is taking weight cues from another Jackson: Miss Jackson, if you're nasty!

Hopefully, the bundled up crooner will be hitting the gym again to deflate those trademark abs, just like Janet (on the right) did. Until then, he can at least count on the extra poundage to keep him warm on those cold New York streets.

Wow Usher. I'm shocked. Is this picture for real or has it been altered in someway? Maybe it's the heavy coat.

By the way TMZ, Janet had gained weight for a movie role and as you know by now has taken off the weight.

I dunno... I'm not ready to jump on the bandwagon here..... maybe his face was just puffy because he had just woken up or something...plus the heavy jacket..... or who knows... maybe he ate something he was allergic to....hehe

And whats with the other pic... thats not him... thats a woman.. is that suposed to be Janet Jackson?

Usher is not that big! I just saw a picture of him on People the other day and he doesn't look like that AT ALL! He is still tight!

That looks like the kid Aaron Reid (LA Reid's son) from "My Super Sweet 16" instead of a fat Usher

He's rich and famous...and in his downtime there's nothing wrong with gaining a few pounds.
People do gain, in the real world.

Some idiots commenting here. No one at TMZ ever said the pic of Janet Jackson was Usher! WTF.

The left pic is supposedly Usher, and all i see is he is wearing a coat. Young straight males wear loose clothing , especially when its cold outside and have a coat on, wtt.

Does anyone know if Janet was trying to get the part of Effie in Dream Girls? She sure did put on a lot of weight, which she has lost.
