Yesterday, the ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ singer took to his Twitter to share the photo of himself in a new clean cut, lock-less hair.“I come alive in the fall time,” the Canadian star said, unveiling his brand new album, ‘Starboy’. And the combination of this sent social media on a meltdown.
The post has garnered over 70,000 likes and over 60,000 retweets, and fans who had fallen in love with his sculpture-like dreadlocks are unable to wrap their minds around this rebranded pop star.
The outrage brings to mind when Toronto rapper Drake shaved his beard and broke the damn internet; to many of his fans, his remarkable feature, including hair, make up the brand they had fallen in love with. And so, for any artiste to change a certain identity marker is like pulling the rug from under their fans’ feet.
Hence, the outrage over The Weeknd’s new look.
