R&B legend Usher has sparked conversation on the internet with his new bright orange haircut. In a video posted to Instagram, he announced his arrival in Paris while showcasing his new look.
The video was then shared by The Shade Room, where rapper Joyner Lucas roasted Usher’s new style by calling him a “flaming hot Cheeto #legend.” Fans also joked about the singer’s hairstyle, with one stating he had “been in Vegas too long” and another speculating that Usher was “going through a midlife crisis.”
Usher also rehashed his viral “watch this” catchphrase, which became one of the most popular memes of 2022 after the Confessions hitmaker dropped the phrase during his NPR Tiny Desk concert.
Usher’s new hairstyle is certainly a bold move and one that has definitely got people talking. It’s not often that you see a well-known artist switch up their look in such a drastic way, and it’s even more rare for them to go for a bright and bold color like orange.

The rapper took to Instagram to post a screenshot of the video, along with the caption “My n-gga lookin like a flaming hot Cheeto #legend,” complete with a laughing face emoji.
Fans also joined in on the roasting, with one person joking that Usher had “been in Vegas too long,” referencing his Sin City residency, and another speculating that the 44-year-old was “going through a midlife crisis.”
But Usher is not one to be discouraged by a little bit of ribbing, and he’s always been known for his sense of humor and his ability to take things in stride. In fact, when asked about the inspiration behind his viral “watch this” catchphrase, Usher said that it just came to him at the moment.
“I don’t know where the inspiration sometimes comes from,” he said. “It could have been anything. It could have been Prince. Somebody had speculated that Prince had done something like this before.
I don’t know, but I do know that I felt like that was the right thing to do at that moment that would just kinda like give people a good time. It just happened, I didn’t plan it. It just happened.”
