Boosie Badazz had a lot of thoughts about the Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show. The Baton Rouge native publically shared some of his opinions about USHER’s performance on Sunday (February 11). He also offered a highly unlikely recommendation for another possible headliner.
As far as last night’s Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show in Nevada, Boosie took issue with one part of the performance. USHER brought out Alicia Keys to sing their Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping “My Boo” duet. Their on-stage interactions became a social media meme.
Alicia Keys, the wife of music producer Swizz Beatz, ran through her “If I Ain’t Got You” single before rising from the piano to join USHER for “My Boo.” At one point, the Coming Home album creator hugged Keys from behind which ignited online conversations about whether the embrace was inappropriate for a married woman.
Boosie Badazz took the side of the faultfinders with a message posted to his Instagram page. He wrote, “@USHER ENOUGH IS ENOUGH BRO!! U NEED TO APOLOGIZE TO [SWIZZ BEATZ]. SHE [IS] MARRIED MY N####. I KNOW THAT WASN’T PLANNED.”
Boosie Says R. Kelly Songs Would Be “Amazing” To Hear At The Super Bowl
“IF R. KELLY WOULDN’T HAVE GOT [IN] TROUBLE HIS SONGS WOULD BE AMAZING AT A SUPERBOWL HALFTIME SHOW‼️ I CAN HEAR THAT VOICE NOW,” Boosie tweeted during the NFL’s championship game.
The 41-year-old recording artist then named some of R. Kelly’s most famous songs like “I Believe I Can Fly,” “Step in the Name of Love” and “Fiesta.” Boosie also suggested the convicted sexual abuser could join up with USHER for a live rendition of their “Same Girl” collaboration.
In 2022, a New York federal judge sentenced R. Kelly (born Robert Kelly) to 30 years in prison following racketeering and sex crimes convictions. In 2023, another federal judge in Illinois sentenced the self-described Pied Piper of R&B to 20 years. A jury found R. Kelly guilty of producing child pornography and enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity in that case.
