I’ve often wondered what Florida Evans from Good Times would look like if she took the rent money and said “To hell with these bills!!” and went to the salon to get some relaxer in her hair? Well, I don’t have to wonder any longer because Usher has solved that mystery for me with his new hairdo that screams “Just let your SOULLLLLL GLOOOOO!”
Maybe I’m a bit biased since my hair told me adios years ago, but not really. Even if I still had hair I wouldn’t torture it into looking like something that would make even James Brown say “Good God!” In the true spirit of New Year, New Me Usher did away with his outdated 2018 ‘do and shocked his Instagram followers with the new, improved, long-lost Five Heartbeats-style Usher!
You know what? I don’t completely hate it.Of course Usher wasn’t the first to try out this Dark and Lovely for men perm, because Yung Joc of Love and Hip Hop has been bringing the Kansas City pimp glamour for a few years with a similar style. Joc also took to Instagram to ask his followers who does it the best.
I’d have to say the real winner here is whoever sold these brothas a box of perm and said “Yeah, it’s fine. You can pull it off!” Perhaps this new ‘do is Usher’s way of celebrating after the man who allegedly stole items from his home last year was captured. According to TMZ the suspect, whose name is being withheld, burglarized Usher’s home as well as a bunch of other celebs including Adam Lambert and Jason Derulo. However his unauthorized shopping spree has finally come to an end.
Law enforcement sources tell us cops have arrested a guy who they believe burglarized the R&B singer this past March … when upwards of $800k worth of property was reportedly taken. We’re told police searched the suspect’s home with a warrant and discovered more than 2,000 items valued at over $2 million, some of which included Usher’s belongings.
We’re told other items belonging to a ‘Real Housewives’ star were also discovered, but it’s unclear for now which housewife it might’ve been. Our sources also tell us that during the investigation, cops learned the suspect had told family members he stumbled on his newfound wealth by doing well in the stock market.
New hair AND he’ll probably get some of his stolen shit back? Usher is already winning 2019 and it’s only been two days! But a word of advice to both Joc and Usher; neither one of you cats are killing the game with that hair. You both look like Anita Baker.
