T-Pain Says He Became Depressed After Usher Told Him He ‘F*cked Up Music’
T-Pain admits that some harsh words from Usher sent him into depression. On The Netflix series, This Is Pop, T-Pain explained an incident that happened in 2013. He was on a flight sleeping when a flight attendant woke him up, saying Usher wanted to talk to him. T-Pain described the conversation saying, “Usher was my friend. I really respect Usher. And he said, ‘I’m gonna tell you something, man. You kinda f***ed up music.’” Initially, T-Pain thought Usher was joking, but Ursh doubled down: "‘Yeah man, you really f***ed up music for real singers.’ I was like, ‘What did I do? I came out and I used Auto-Tune.’ He was like, ‘Yeah, you f***ed it up.’ I’m like, ‘But I used it, I didn’t tell everybody else to start using it.’” T-Pain said that "very moment that started a four-year depression for me." This Is Pop is now streaming on Netflix.
