In a new interview with People, Usher opens up about his failed marriage to Tameka Foster However, he doesn’t regret the union, despite the fact it ended in divorce.

“I appreciate the relationship for what it was. Even though it didn’t work out, I’m glad we got together. I love her as the mother of my children; we just couldn’t be married,” he told the magazine.

Things started going downhill between the two shortly after the birth of their second child; he and Foster started to disagree over everything from parenting style to his busy schedule.

“We’re two different people and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100 percent,” he said.

Having two kids from the failed marriage made it all worthwhile for Usher, who says the boys have a lot of energy.

“Usher [V] is always in everything. He’s an instigator. He’s the one who leads his brother astray. I was like that when I was his age… if one gets in trouble, the other one does, too. They both have a lot of energy. They can wear me out.”

But he says his ex-wife spoils the boys.

“She spoils them. She lets them do everything that she wouldn’t let me do. Sometimes, when I’m scolding the kids, I sound just like my mom. I’m like, ‘how did Jonetta get in here?’ ”

So will Usher ever get married again?

“I still believe in love. I believe in marriage. When I fall in love again, everyone will know. I’ll sing about it.”
