Usher hits out at idea his Super Bowl performance was ‘perverted’

Usher has hit out at the idea his Super Bowl performance was “perverted”.

The 45-year-old singer has laughed off the reaction to his steamy collaboration with Alicia Keys, 43, at the halftime show as they reunited to perform their 2004 hit My Boo, with people joking that the Girl On Fire hitmaker’s husband Swizz Beatz, 45, should be concerned.

He told The Breakfast Club: “In no way anything done there should have been viewed as bad or in any way perverted or anything like that.”

The Love In This Club singer insisted “no disrespect” was intended and explained that the intimate performance was more about “having fun” than anything else.

He added: “No, it was literally about having fun because of a song that me and Alicia made many years ago.

“We celebrated because of the legacy of it, and [meant] no disrespect to anybody.”

And Usher revealed he, Alicia and Swizz — who have children, Egypt Daoud and Genesis Ali, together with the DJ also having three kids from previous relationships — have since shared some jokes about the performance and the amount of memes and innuendo after the show.
