Usher and Chilli Thomas at the BET Awards on June 23, 2003
Usher famously poured his cheating heart into Confessions II, singing, "Just when I thought I'd said all I could say my chick on the side said she got one on the way. These are my confessions!" Poor Chilli Thomas, the beautiful TLC singer who don't want "No Scrubs" but got saddled with one anyway, later took to her blog to rant about the ridiculousness of cheating: "We live in a country where we can choose our mate so if you’re unhappy with your mate for whatever reason, then break up," she writes. "It’s pretty simple. Cheating takes too much effort." Preach it, girl! Or, as Usher sings, "Even though this might bruise you, let it burn."
