It seems that Justin Bieber has listened to his fans and critics alike, who were upset when he was pictured with dreadlocks recently.
The singer had the style for just a month, but has now been seen with a buzzcut instead.
As yet, he hasn’t commented on the cultural appropriation backlash on his social media.
Bieber shared the selfie on Instagram, captioned simply “Happy Sunday”.
One wrote: “The fact that I knew you were gonna do this after the dreads lmfao yes we love to see it, always looking good too.”
Another shared: “Thank god he shaved his head.”
Someone else added: “Better than the dreads.”
An extra picture was then posted on Bieber’s Instagram stories.
Just has 176 million followers on Instagram, and he caused upset last month when he shared a few photos with the dreadlocked style.
Many were angry as he also wore the style in the past and was criticized then. Many fans saw it as he hasn’t learned a lesson from before.
Justin was asked by a TMZ reporter over the weekend about what exactly inspired his new cut.
They asked whether it had anything to do with the backlash he received and cultural appropriation accusations.
Back in 2016, writer and speaker Feminista Jones explained to CNN: “Cultural appropriation is about the power dynamic.
“When people with power and privilege decide to ‘validate’ customs and traditions that oppressed people have long been marginalized for by saying ‘This is the hot new thing,’ then we have serious problems.”
Other celebrities who have past been linked to cultural appropriation scandals include Kim Kardashian, Iggy Azalea, and Miley Cyrus.
Civil rights activist Tamika Mallory told TooFab last month that the hairdo was ‘fine … as long as [he] acknowledges where dreadlocks come from, and the history – the deep, rich history – of where that look comes from, and that style.’
Be was previously criticized for using the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. King for nearly two minutes on his latest album, Justice.
He replied to the criticism on Twitter at the time: ‘I know that I cannot simply solve injustice by making music but I do know that if we all do our part by using our gifts to serve this planet and each other that we are that much closer to being united,’
