Need some dating tips? Ask Usher. The R&B singer, who is starring in his first lead role in "In the Mix," shared his secrets with Time magazine.

"Women love compliments, you know what I mean? Buy her a drink," he said. "Talk to her about whatever it is that she wants to talk about. As long as you keep her laughing, you got it."

The film features the 27-year-old musician as Darrell, a playboy New York City disc jockey who finds himself in an interracial relationship with co-star Emmanuelle Chriqui.

Usher, whose 2004 "Confessions" had huge critical and commercial success, isn't the only musician with a movie these days. Rapper 50 Cent has his own movie, too. Both show the stars baring some skin. But does Usher think he's the better man?

"I'm a smaller guy. 50's got the arms, I got the abs," he says.
