With the height of EDM and dubstep well behind us, the giants of the period need to move onto new pastures. For some, that means dabbling in here genres and for others, it means a rad haircut. Skrillex of screeeeechy beep beep fame has chosen to go the latter route and reinvent himself as Jon Snow. I guess with Game of Thrones being long over, the character is up for grabs!
Before his grand transformation, Skrillex was known for his nerdy, long-haired, half-shaved head look. It was a choice.
But he’s past the awkward emo Corey Feldman phase and moved into his fuckboi era! Presenting a real “taking off the glasses” moment:

The new look is doing it for a few, proving once again that a beard is makeup for men.

Others have made the observation that he’s Drake 2.0.

I don’t know how I feel about this Pokemon evolution, but one thing that’s got the stamp of approval is that hot turtleneck. No more rehashing 80s, 90s, or 00s fashion. It’s time to bring the 50s beatnik and snap-clapping back for 2023!
