Jermaine Dupri Reacts To Social Media Clowning His Super Bowl Outfit

Jermaine Dupri's attire for the the Super Bowl halftime show drew comparisons to "Boss Baby" and The Lollipop Guild.

There were many memorable moments from the Super Bowl LVIII halftime performance.  Grammy-award winner Usher cycled through his most notable chart-topping songs and brought out artists to perform their famous features. Alicia Keys took the audience back to 2004 performing a snippet of “My Boo,” while Ludacris and Lil Jon joined in to perform “Yeah.”

Usher made it clear he was bringing Atlanta to the Super Bowl, so it was only fitting that Jermaine Dupri hit the stage. The ATL producer, So So Def recording artist, and owner left his mark on the stage and social media—but not for his music.

It was Dupri’s outfit that grabbed the attention of spectators and social media. He sported a black tuxedo short-suit accessorized with flouncy socks and a pair of penny loafers. Comparisons and memes circulated referencing The Wizard Of Oz, Leprechaun In The Hood, and Boss Baby.

Dupri took the criticism in stride, reflecting on his accomplishments, and letting the world know in an Instagram post that his socks were Louis Vuitton.

“Haaa!! ok I ain’t have time for y’all last night I was too drunk, me and my homies performed at the Super Bowl!so I’m just really seeing y’all got me fucked up !! But I will say it’s funny as hell,yoooo!! @pharrell 🤣🤣 you see this !? PS we came into this game with our clothes on backwards, i ain’t no regular nigga 🤣🤣”

Dupri let fans know that they were talking about the wrong thing. His outfit choices have nothing on his accomplishment.

“U wanna talk about the socks let’s talk about,I got 5 songs in the TOP 10, Let’s Talk About It !! #MyBoo # MadeForMe #UGotItBad #Confessions #Burn

Usher’s Super Bowl performance was one for the books as his performance incorporated strippers, Vegas glam, skaters, and 13 minutes of movement paired with live vocals.

The moment is cemented in pop culture history—along with Dupri’s outfit.
