Keke Palmer Sparks Controversy with Usher Concert Video
Keke Palmer set social media abuzz when she shared a video of herself enjoying an Usher performance, donning a translucent dress with a black bodysuit underneath. However, her attire ignited an uproar among fans and critics alike.
In response to the video, Palmer’s child’s father, Darius Jackson, tweeted his thoughts, expressing concern over her outfit and stating, “You’re a mom.” His tweet garnered significant attention and mixed reactions, with one commenter noting that men often see women as solely mother figures and forget their multifaceted nature.
Undeterred by the backlash, Jackson doubled down on his opinions in a subsequent tweet, highlighting his disapproval of the outfit’s revealing nature. This only further fueled fans’ anger and added to the controversy.
Interestingly, Usher, the artist at the center of the performance, chimed in on the situation through a lighthearted post on the Meta app, Threads. In his post, he humorously asked, “Am I trending yet?” acknowledging the ongoing online discussions surrounding the incident.
It seems dancing at Usher concerts has become a trend among celebrities, as Patti LaBelle’s viral video of grooving at an Usher show made headlines last month. Meanwhile, Usher has been busy with new music, releasing his latest single “GLU” and collaborating on a steamy remix of Muni Long’s “Hrs. & Hrs.”
As the debate continues, the incident remains a talking point in the digital realm, drawing both support and criticism from fans and public figures alike.
