Honoree Usher Raymond IV attends the second annual Pencils of Promise Gala on October 25, 2012 in New York City. The singer paid $12,000 for this puppy during the charity auction.
OMG. That is one expensive bitch!
"All in the name of feline fun!," Usher tweeted. (Perhaps he meant to say canine?) "It took me 2 years but I outbid everyone this year to bring Poppy home to Ush"
"Poppy (????) Raymond is what I'm think of namin' her...," he added. "however there are two gregarious 3 and 4 year olds that will have the last say...and the responsibility that comes wit her."
Normally, we'd go off on a tangent about why it's important to adopt a pet and not shop for one, but this money went to a good cause. Funds raised at the Gala benefited Pencils of Promise, a charity that builds schools in Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Ghana.
