A lot of our favorite stars are watching us on social media, even when it seems like they are just posting their career highlights and rich vibes. There’s rumors that Beyoncé has secret social media pages and that’s why she knows about (and slyly references) fan memes. While that’s delightful, there’s nothing funnier than when a celebrity leans fully into the social media hoopla. That’s what Usher just did by dressing up as Satoru Gojo from Jujutsu Kaisen in a recent TikTok video.
Editor’s Note: The following video spoils a plot point in Jujutsu Kaisen.
If you’re a little confused as to why Usher would cosplay Gojo, here’s some background information for you. Even if you don’t watch Jujutsu Kaisen, this anime character has been all over social media for several years, thanks to several viral memes. Fans of the anime really, really love this character. He is, in fact, a Daddy to them. And what better theme song to unofficially crown an anime daddy with than “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home),” which Usher released back in 2010. Fan edits of Gojo with Usher’s song in the background have gotten millions of views.
As we know, Usher is very much so active on social media and knows what fans are saying about him. So, when Gojo fans asked Usher to acknowledge their fave character’s existence—or even perform “Hey Daddy” at the Super Bowl—he naturally made their wish come true in the aforementioned video. We love to see it.
We doubt that Usher will sing a song at the Super Bowl about coming home to, ahem, mess around with a lady who’s been waiting for him all day. That might be too much, even in 2024.
But Usher dressing up like Gojo for a little Jujutsu Kaisen cosplay is more than enough to spark joy for the fandom.
