Just call her the queen of tough questions!
In addition to touching on Usher's controversial custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond (last month he was awarded sole custody of the couple's two young sons), Oprah dug deeper with questions on infidelity, fatherhood, and the singer's relationship with a bridesmaid from his wedding.
Here are five things Usher admitted to Oprah.
He wasn't ready for marriage at age 28
Usher's fans and family weren't exactly supportive of his marriage to Tameka Foster in 2007, but he wanted to do the right thing.
What Usher told Oprah: "I wanted to give her the wedding that she wanted. But I wasn't quite ready. I impregnated this woman, we were in a relationship, we were in love. I was taking responsibility."
He wasn't entirely faithful
During the custody battle, his ex-wife accused him of being unfaithful during their marriage. When Oprah cut to the chase and asked if he had been sexually involved with another woman, the singer admitted: "When we were separated, yes, I was. We were not divorced."
What Usher told Oprah: "I was faithful at heart, but not faithful all the way. Even having a conversation with another woman, period, about matters of your relationship or emotions is, in my opinion, not being faithful."
And as for rumors of his affair with a bridesmaid from his wedding, Usher said, "Outside of my marriage and our separation and our divorce, I did have exchanges with [the bridesmaid]. We were friends."
He was close to his stepson
Following the death of his 11-year-old stepson, Kile, in a July boating accident, Usher was hurt to find that people speculated he didn't attend the boy's funeral.
What Usher told Oprah: "I miss Kile. We cooked together, we laughed, we sang. He loved to sing and dance, he loved to tell jokes… I absolutely was at the funeral. I was at the burial as well."
He climaxes to "Climax"
Don't call him narcissistic, but Usher finds that his own music helps to set the mood for lovemaking.
What Usher told Oprah: "I'm a good motivator for the moment. Some guys don't take their time, they don't even put music on. I like to set the mood. A little Luther, Marvin Gaye, then your more modern songs like Usher."
Being a dad is his call of duty
With a three-year custody battle behind him, Usher says that being a father is his priority.
What Usher told Oprah: "I was born to do what I'm doing as a dad. I realized that once I had a child…Having not had a father wasn't a reason not to be a good father. That was all of the reason to be a good father because I didn't have one."
"Oprah's Next Chapter" airs on Sunday night at 9/8c on OWN.
