Usher has spoken out following the moment he serenaded Keke Palmer before her boyfriend shamed her for a revealing look.
Usher has responded following the viral moment he serenaded actress Keke Palmer during his Las Vegas residency last month.
He spoke to People magazine about the incident, which happened to be the same evening Keke's boyfriend Darius Jackson outfit shamed her on social media.
Jackson, the father of him and Keke's six-month-old son wrote: "It's the outfit tho... you a mom," expressing his disapproval on Twitter.
Usher called the incident a "pop [culture] moment" that is "worth talking about," following the scandal arising from his Las Vegas residency appearance.
"Rather, it was a conversation of what was going on with us having fun in front of the audience or conversation about that song."
"Every night I'm thinking about how the world now is going to react to this moment that I'll have with whoever I'm choosing to sing to," he continued.
Usher finished by saying "Every night I'm thinking about how the world now is going to react to this moment that I'll have with whoever I'm choosing to sing to."
Keke's boyfriend Darius Jackson wrote a series of tweets speaking about her outfit worn for the Usher concert, which was a black mesh dress, with the actress seemingly clapping back.
Neither have addressed their relationship status since this incident last month.
