Eric Benet Calls Out Criticism Over His Mature Appearance: Lemme See What Yo’ Soda-Drinking, Chicken McNugget Eatin’ A** Look Like At 53-Years-Old!
A little grey never hurt anyone, right? Singer Eric Benet wasn’t here for social media’s criticism on his appearance. While Eric Benet rocked signature dreadlocks and chest-bearing shirts in his heyday as a 90s heartthrob, he now sports a short, silver afro and matching full beard. This caught music fans off guard this weekend when he and collaborator, Tamia, sang a virtual version of their 1999 hit, “Spend My Life With You.”

“After my last post, I’m getting a lotta “D*mn what happened to Eric Benèt?” comments. Im like 30 years happened nucca!!”
He continued, laying into the millennials’ comments:
“Lemmie see what yo’ soda drinking, chicken McNugget eatin’ ass look like at 53yrs old! [laugh emojis]”
