Gen Xers And Millennials Claim Same Thing About Usher's Super Bowl Show

Original source (on modern site)

Millennials had it bad for Usher over his Super Bowl LVIII halftime show.

And so did Gen Xers.

Because while the 1978-born R&B star is a member of Generation X, his music was a staple for millennials coming of age in the late 1990s and 2000s.

Both generations went on X, formerly Twitter, to claim the performance as their own. Others, meanwhile, said it was definitely one for the Xennials.

A sampling is below:

To go from an epic Vegas residency run to the Super Bowl…I've never met Usher but, like other millennials, I grew up with him. Really proud of the moment Usher is having! He earned it!

Usher makes me realize I'm really teetering on the Gen X end of millennial bc Dr. Dre's halftime show was still my favorite.
