Congrats to Usher
The R&B star won all four of his nominations at the American Music Awards that aired Sunday.

Apparently his wild lifestyle caught up to him as O.D.B.-otherwise known as rapper Old Dirty Bastard-collapsed and died in the recording studio on Saturday. He was 35. An original member of the Wu Tang Clan, he will be greatly missed.
