Usher reflected on his past performance at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, where he playfully interacted with Nicki Minaj on stage.

He explained that the gestures were inspired by Jamaican culture but admits he may have gone too far with some actions.

“Have you seen some of your old moments, like when you were onstage with Nicki Minaj and you were head buttin’ her [expletive]? Why was you so unhinged?” Charlamagne Tha God asked.

Usher clarified that the intention was to celebrate their collaboration and legacy, not to disrespect anyone.

“That was Jamaican culture! So you gotta go to Jamaica. That was just a moment that was fun,” Usher said.

“By the way, it was me playing my bass, so I probably would’ve bumped my shoulder or my hand, but I had my bass in my hand and I was playing, so I kind of bopped off her body a little bit. If you go back and look at the video, you’ll understand because I did it there for the first time,” he said.

“I think I was reaching a bit when I smacked her, though,” Usher said. “I shouldn’t have smacked her. I shouldn’t have did that.”

The conversation also addressed his recent Super Bowl halftime show performance with Alicia Keys, which sparked mixed reactions online due to the sensual nature of the performance.

“No, it was literally about having fun because of a song that me and Alicia made many years ago,” Usher said. “We celebrated because of the legacy of it, and [meant] no disrespect to anybody.”

In other news, Usher recently married his longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Goicoechea.
