Usher 'kicked in the face' by a fan

Being a sex symbol has its dangers as Usher learned first hand at his New York City concert.

The crooner brought an ecstatic female fan on stage on Monday night for a serenade of his sensual song "Trading Places" at Madison Square Garden. He sat her on a couch while he caressed her.

Then, after they changed positions, the overexcited fan tried to move her leg to get closer to him. Her stiletto boot heel knocked him in the nose.

The fan tried to smooth things over by massaging Usher's face, but there was no need: Usher wasn't hurt and cracked a joke about it.
