So I got a sample of Usher's new cologne ...

usherR&B star Usher recently released a new cologne called VIP. And guess what? I got a sample of it!!! OMG!!!


I've read that wearing this new fragrance is supposed to empower you to be your own VIP. This weekend, I'm going to put that theory to the test.

Either tonight or tomorrow night, I'm going to drench myself in Usher's VIP and try to breeze past the bouncers at one of Baltimore's high-end clubs.

What do you think will happen? 

There's only one way to find out.

In future news, Sam Sessa was thrown out of a high-end club this past weekend. According to the club's bouncer, Mr. Sessa smelled like a turn covered in burnt hair.

Baltimore high-end clubs should NEVER be used in the same sentence. That is a oxymoron. You might want to visit D.C. buddy.

The management at FuL has been alerted to your attempts to gain entry to our HyperLounge and no amount of Eau D'Usher will help you.

And to JC, you are already off the guest list.

Sorry Sam, but Aqua is closed for the season.

Well Sam.. either the bouncers will pass out as you pass by... or, you will notice a wide empty circumference around your being for the night, and it won't be your shadow or an eclipse.. These are my guesses..

BTW, most women do not like guys drenched or even remotely scented in cologne.. if we dig a guy, it's the way he naturally smells that's key.. jus' sayin'.. =)

@bryanintowson: I think the only hyperlounge aka hyperdive bar in smalltimore is Finns or maybe Claddagh's. If I want to visit something upscale in smalltimore I go to Towson Mall lol.
