Usher on new tour: 'I'm too mature to be stripping off now'

R&B heartthrob Usher has opened up about his current 'UR Experience' tour and revealed that he feels as though he's too old to be taking his clothes off on stage now. 

Speaking to Britain's The Guardian newspaper, the singer explained that he won't be getting naked during his live performances and that phase in his life is very much behind him: "That was crazy. It's a bit of a different show now. I'm more mature, I don't drop my trousers any more. Unfortunately they do fall down from time to time. I'm losing weight. A wardrobe malfunction."

Referring to his preparation for such a jaunt, the superstar explained that he goes into training 'like an athlete' and pushes himself as hard as he can to ensure he's in the best condition for performing a high-octane run of shows:

"I'm a go-hard type. It's in my DNA. I physically prepare my body as if I'm a trained athlete. After the shows, I sit in an ice tub and do a hot dip, cold dip, and sometimes I sit in a hyperbaric chamber to rejuvenate my energy. I have a workout regime that I do, just to keep my body going. If you get lazy when you're onstage, it shows."
