Tonight VH1 airs the season finale of Behind the Music with R&B titan Usher. It chronicles the 31-year-old’s climb from choir boy to pop-music icon. VH1 just released a 10-minute preview, and there’s loads of debauchery, which started with hip-hop impresario Diddy (then Puff Daddy) in the early ’90s. When Usher was a young teen, he was sent to Diddy’s Flavor Camp in New York to sharpen his swagger. There he says he was surrounded by “sex, drugs, orgies…” and presumably more. The story builds to the ugly breakup with TLC’s Chili that set the tone for his R&B opus Confessions. He’d later marry Tameka Foster, proclaiming his love for her and his grown up ways on Here I Stand. Then he’d follow up with his latest effort Raymond V Raymond after divorcing her. This guy’s life has been a trip. Check out the preview after the jump.

Are you going to tune in tonight to catch Usher’s story?
