Taraji P. Henson brought in her 52nd birthday under the Vegas lights with Usher by her side. The actress was among thousands of fans who filled the Dolby Live amphitheater to witness the singer perform his biggest hits during his “My Way” residency.
But unlike the other adoring attendees, Henson snagged an unforgettable moment on stage when the “Confessions” superstar invited the actress to join him for a special serenade on Sept. 11. As he sang “I like to run my fingers through your hair,” Henson reveled in being the focus of everyone’s attention. She glistened in a silver fitted dress as she shimmied, twirled and dipped it low, showing off her seductive moves.
The onlooking crowd erupted into screams as the “Empire” star ran her hands up and down Usher’s torso and legs. Henson posted several clips from her Vegas adventure on her Instagram page. But the one that has fans talking the most is her time dancing with Usher.
“You know he love his women older” and “Yasss Taraji! Now That’s how you Have a happy birthday!” wrote two different social media users.
“Tyrese on the next flight to Vegas to go get Yvette,” joked one person, making reference to Henson and Tyrese’s roles in the movie “Baby Boy.”
“That wasn’t Taraji, that was Cookie,” wrote another person who felt Henson channeled the energy of her “Empire” character, Cookie Lyon.
“First LisaRaye, now her,” commented one person. The “Players Club” actress recently turned heads when a video of her cozying up and dancing with comedian Kountry Wayne made its way online. At first glance, several people assumed Wayne and the actress were letting fans in on a budding romance, but that was not the case. The eye-catching moment was all in fun.
McCoy’s summer has seemingly been filled with light-hearted moments of fun, laughter and dancing. Previous clips of the actress have shown her getting down on the dance floor while celebrating birthdays for her friends Vivica A. Fox and comedian Rickey Smiley.
