It’s been a rough couple of months for Justin Bieber, if you do for some reason care about the troubled 19-year-old. But, his latest stint, is one that could have serious ramifications for his career.
No. He didn’t skip out on another show or punch a photographer in the face. The Biebs went and got himself a bad haircut that exactly resembles a look famously worn by Rihanna. The haircut, where one side of the head is shaved and the other has a long sweeping fringe, has also already divided Twitter.
One fan stated, “Love it, love it, love it. It doesn’t matter what Justin does with his hair, he always manages to look great,” while an upset Belieber wrote, “What was he thinking, his hair was lovely and now it just looks ridiculous.”
If you think that a haircut can make or break someone’s career, just remember that Bieber lost 80,000 Twitter followers after debuting his quiff last year. And, it doesn’t help that you just got a haircut that has been recently voted the worst of the 21st Century.
Besides the enraged Beliebers crying foul on Twitter, the new hairstyle is awful.
First up, before this new chop, Justin Bieber already an androgynous-type of look to his feminine figure. A hairstyle that has been sported by Rihanna, as well as Miley Cyrus, doesn’t really help that image. Especially if you’re a guy trying to get over a breakup. With previous comparisons to female celebrities, J-Biebs didn’t really help to stop those comparisons from continuing.
But who in their right mind would think that shaving half your head would be a good look? Was it Skrillex? If so, it’s not. It’s wacky, in a bad way, and is just plain lazy. You mean to tell me that a hairstylist getting paid all sorts of cash couldn’t have come up with something better? Better yet, an artist couldn’t have asked for something cooler?
I know people want to be different and original, but this look isn’t either one of them. RiRi rocked it a long time ago. And, it didn’t win her over any fans. If Rihanna couldn’t pull off the “Skrillex,” then who can? That girl can pull off almost any style flawlessly.
So, for all the SoJones readers out there, what do you think of Justin Bieber’s new Rihanna haircut? Is it as awful as I think it is, or can The Biebs pull it off?
