Usher is finally speaking out about the video of him and KeKe Palmer going viral while at his concert. 

In the video, the actress was seen dancing closely with the “Confessions” singer while wearing a revealing outfit. Palmer’s baby’s father, Darius Jackson, would call her out over her outfit choice and behavior that night. 

However, Usher is now sharing his thoughts about the entire thing. “I think everybody’s vision or a version of what they felt happened there just leads you back to just really having a good time in Las Vegas. And that’s what I hope came out of it. Rather, it was a conversation of what was going on with us having fun in front of the audience or conversation about that song,” he said.

He added, “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. But it was a pop moment, and it was fun to have at least a conversation going and we just keep it light. I don’t see anything negative happening in Las Vegas.”

Usher will continue to perform his shows with some in Paris before going back to his residency in October in Las Vegas.
