Usher reacts to receiving critcism for intimately hugging Alicia Keys during Super Bowl performance

It’s nothing but love!

Usher shot down internet chatter over his tight hug with Alicia Keys during their duet at the Super Bowl 2024 Halftime Show.


Some of the viewers felt the ick with the way the singer grabbed the Falling singer while they were performing their 2004 hit song ‘My Boo’.

The Caught Up singer, in a conversation with Breakfast Club radio show host Charlamagne Tha God, said that he and Alicia’s husband, Swizz Beatz, shared a good laugh over the furor.

“Absolutely, we laughed about it,” said the 45-year-old.

He added that it is crazy about people think. “It’s all about how you present things… It’s all about love.”

The Super Bowl halftime headliner described his performance as merely having fun “because of a song me and Alicia made many years ago and we celebrate it because of the legacy of it.”

He also mentioned that he meant no disrespect towards anyone.

Earlier, Swizz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, also slammed the criticism.
