Watch Usher Slap Nicki Minaj On The Ass At The VMAs

21 August 2014


Usher’s a man of his word.

The legendary R&B singer promised us he’d do something he’s never done before during his 2014 MTV Video Music Awards performance, and boy did he deliver.

Shortly after debuting a 15-second clip of his new music video, “She Came To Give it to You,” on the VMA red carpet,the Everything You Can Imagine singer took the stage at The Forum in Inglewood, California, Monday night (August 25) dressed in a white motorcycle jacket, T-shirt and pants to perform the Nicki Minaj-assisted single.

Backed by an energetic live band and dance troupe, the three-time VMA performer released a series of kinetic glides and dance moves that were an expert collaboration of precision and spontaneity.

“I’m so confused, if you only knew/She came to give it to you,” he sang in front of an elaborate digital background.

Minaj, who had already set Twitter abuzz with her bootylicious “Anaconda” performance earlier in the show, entered stage right to spit her verse. As she rapped and gyrated, Usher riffed on the guitar while bumping and then slapping The Pink Print MC’s butt.

Once Nicki and her white fur shawl were off stage, the “Good Kisser” crooner punctuated his performance with an array of signature spin moves. The backup dancers then dropped to the floor and Usher froze as smoke plumed from beneath the stage as if it had just been set on fire.
