Plenty of us have gotten a laugh out of the video of Usher accidentally getting kicked in the face by a fan, and that includes the R&B crooner himself.
The 32-year-old star took a shoe to the face when he was performing on stage at Madison Square Garden on Monday, but he’s been able to laugh it off.
"In all my years, this is one of the most interesting experiences. I got a kick out of it!” the singer told US Weekly. “It looked worse than it actually was. My audience and I got a good laugh."
Usher had been singing a sensual serenade to the fan while seated, and then she decided to spin around for a little face-to-face time with the artist. In the middle of her turn, she accidentally clocked him in the face with her foot.
At the time, Usher took it in stride, joking, “We play rough in the bed, you know. We kick each other in the face and all kinds of stuff.”
The poor fan felt horribly about it, but Usher has assured her that she shouldn’t be concerned. "Wherever you are baby, don't feel bad," he said. "No hard feelings."

Kicked in the too tee
Ha i luv usher he is so classy and well rounded! Haters keep hating cause once ur a gentlemen alwayz one....luvit!!!!
dass a big ole leg to have to lift up!!!!
@Sam Sam the Icecream Man: Well you ARE in the marquee blogs of CNN, smart guy. Just sayin' homie.
I know of many artists I'd rather see kicked in the face....Kayne West, Justin Beiber, Cher....just to name a few...
Oh my God .... WHO .... THE .... HELL ... CARES?!?!?!?
This crap is considered news??? Geeeezzzzuuusssss!
He acted like a true gentleman about the incident. He knew it was an accident. Usher shows a lot of class...
Usher has slow reflexes for a black guy.
One more kick and he's like "yeah", how the hell is he supposed to leave.
i think it was actually funny and the person had planed it:)
wow in this age of easy offense someone who doesn't take it on the chin...... pun intended
Who cares if an usher got kicked in the head? Jeez, next we will be reading about ushers not putting people in their proper seats and stuff.
Barely nicked him.
He did handle it gracefully, but I would hesitate to use the word classy, considering he had a complete stranger writhing in his lap. That in itsself is not really classy. But to each his own. I shudder to think what Kanye would have said. "That was a good kick y'all, but Bruce Lee had the best kick of all time"
So I guess he ain't even mad.
It is so stupid that this is newsworthy.
So why are you reading and then commenting? Go watch NBC if you are so "Newsworthy"!!
I wanna know who forced you to click on this link? THat was mean.
That was more like a "brush in the face" than a kick. At least he has class unlike Kayne.
'At the time, Usher took it in stride, joking, “We play rough in the bed, you know. We kick each other in the face and all kinds of stuff.”
"Joking" is right. He's never been in a bed with a woman.
W.W.K.D.: What Would Kanye Do? Let's spin this by inserting the less talented and crybaby Kanye in place of the highly talented and classy Usher. Discuss!
mmmmm he's hot
he give me a massive throbbing erection
The fan then ended up on a beach near long island with 3 other "fans" who kicked him...
Got the "joke"....pretty crass and mean. Those women in Long Island still have a family, joking about their death is so not cool. I pray no one in your family is murdered and dumped on a beach....
Well done, I must say. It is not a farcry of the imagination to think Kanye would have stormed off-stage and tweeted about it. However, if it were me, I'd trade her a little slap and play both off with an interjection about playing rough.
Pretending to be ignorant doesn't get you any respect...
Its obamas fault!!!! He wants the poor to get our have money and health care how dare he. Doesn't he know hire capitalism works? You have to have capital to begin with to be successful.if she would have worked harder in school she would have learned not to kick people.you use your god given right use tour gun and shoot them. Lazy ghetto people, go get a job.
you suck so bad its not funny. You really should try to find something better to do with your time. Matter of fact you should be spending time in a grammar class. You stupid slimeball
Jae, what in the hell does Obama, education, and health care have to do with this article. Stop blaming Obama for everything. This country was screwed up before Obama became President. Go back to school and take an English course or something. You sound so ignorant.
You made me laugh, thank you :)
yes.. if this was Chris Brown he would have laid a beating.
Thanks for that.
He's ok with it cuz I kick him daily. I kick him out my bed every morning so I can get to work on time. :D
Usher is so classy! Love that guy!
You can tell he saw the kick coming at the last moment and avoided the worst of it
What a nice guy.
To the author of the article: the fan didn't feel horribly, she felt horrible. Horribly is an adverb. If she had felt horribly, that would mean she did a bad job of feeling, like she had tried to feel sad and felt happy instead.
KevinC, you are wrong. Felt horribly is correct. As you said, "horribly" is an adverb.
Actually, KevinC is right. Consider "I feel happy" vs "I feel happily".
OMG...Who gives a damn.......you guys understood what the hell they meant.
@A: yes it is an adverb and that's exactly why it's incorrect.
Horribly, it is horrible to have to comment that the horrible fan actually felt horribly horrible about her horrible act.
It's nice to see some class in the entertainment industry these days.
I like Usher a lot, but what in the hell was he doing letting a fan writhe all over him like that while he was performing?
Class act. He handled it with humor and afterwards with grace.
I'm glad he laughed it off, shows he's a gentlemen and that a small thing like that isn't worth getting upset about.
Usher is great. and I am usually a harsh bitter cynic.. actually no, I am not. but with so many out there, I almost think I am one.. wait, now I have become one.. see how I made this all about me? I'm really that much of a loser.. Yea.. but go read every other comment and you will find the same. None of us have anything to say, it is what it is. Usher got kicked, he brushed it off, and people take advantage of the situation for good or for bad, depending on their personality. I suspect God is real.
LOL. This may be the best comment on any article, ever.
Ok, so this is news? well i took a crap yesterday, they should do an article about too then.
if it bothers u so much why read it? how about u think, thinker
Shouldn't you be off saving the world instead of wasting your valuable time posting here?
Haha, you not only wasted your time reading this non-news news article but you wasted your time commenting on it too. I bet if they wrote a news article about me pooping you'd read it you thinker you!!
Maybe you should tweet about it. There are probably other s***heads out there that want to know. Not my thing, but maybe you could let'm know stuff like, did ya keep it, or play with it, or just what made it special enough for you to announce it on CNN.
Does anyone remeber the Troll doll? lol.
He is used to taking slaps,kicks and beatings from his ex-wife/cougar/Sugar mummy. so one little kick not gonna hurt
I don't follow his music, but he handled this with class.
Usher played it off well. I would probably feel bad if I kicked my favorite celebrity in the face, too.
Bet some people out there were wishing Justin Bieber had gotten kicked in the face instead.
Thankfully he has already! With a watter bottle, best video!
Oh hell yes, lol. Beiber kicked, stomped and put on a plane to yesterday-ville.
I'd love to see Beiber turned into a human cannonball and shot into the side of a building. What a smarmy little twit.
I love Usher, he didn't get mad or anything, he is an amazing singer!! God Bless you!!
