Justin Bieber Shaves Head After Being Criticized For His Dreadlocks
After being criticized for wearing dreadlocks, Justin Bieber shaved his hair off and showed his Instagram followers his new look on Sunday.
The singer used dreadlocks for the second time in his career and was accused of cultural appropriation by many people on social media after posting a picture of his dreadlocks while vacationing with his wife Hailey Bieber.
A month after being criticized for his dreadlocks, he posted a picture of his new buzzcut; one on his story, which is now his Instagram profile picture and another alongside his wife, captioned “Happy Sunday”
Bieber did not attend Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, but he was nominated for Top Song Sales Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Male Artist and Top R&B Song for “Intentions,” which featured Quavo.
The singer wrote on an Instagram post that he is “inspired by Black culture” adding that he has also “benefitted off Black culture.”
“My style, how I sing, dance, perform, and my fashion have all been influenced and inspired by Black culture,” he wrote, promising his followers to use his platforms to “learn, to speak up about racial injustice and systemic oppression, and to identify ways to be a part of much needed change.”
