Justin Bieber, who is currently taking a break from pining over Selena Gomez by vacationing with Hailey Baldwin, is being ridiculed by some over a new hairdo. The Biebs posted this picture of himself on Monday rocking cornrows, something folks on Twitter and IG quickly skewered him over.
you look like riff raff with those cornrows, take em off boy @justinbieber

“Sigh, I am so tired of White celebrity’s appropriating our culture. The picture plus the caption. He’s trying so hard to be problematic,” one person wrote in his Instagram comments. “Some black people were shamed and made fun of when they wear cornrows but White people get praised when they do it. That isn’t right,” another user added.
@justinbieber boy im gonna pull those cornrows out of your head if you don’t do it yourself

Even without the criticism, the singer is well aware of how questionable the choice is, saying, “Hailey made me get corn rows like an absolute douche bag, these will be off tomorrow trust me, Danny.”
Regardless, Justin isn’t the only White celebrity to rock cornrows. We’ve compiled a gallery of others who’ve also done it starting with Kendall Jenner who wore the hairstyle last year while taking a stank face selfie.
The Real Reason Jason Derulo Is Out Here Teaching Zumba Class
Jason Derulo popped up at an L.A. Zumba class Tuesday night but he wasn’t there to take the class … he was there to teach it.
When @zumba and @jasonderulo hook up at the @thebeatboxla it’s an unforgettable night!! #zumba #zumbafitness #jasonderulo #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #dance #fun #lovethis #instsadaily #instagood #video #losangeles #culvercity #followme #follow #nightlife #music #dj #amazing #unforgettable #venue #eventspace #bookthebox #today #picoftheday #like #likes #now
According to Forbes, Derulo has partnered with Zumba, who will be offering exclusive classes featuring choreography to his hit song “Tip-Toe” featuring French Montana.
To kick things off the 28-year-old showed up unannounced at Beat Box Studio LA to teach a few routines, and as you could imagine everyone was mad hype.
Perez Hilton and Youtube Fitness star Caleb Mitchell were amongst the 80 folks taking the class, which also included instructors and members of the University of Southern California dance team.
“What I love most about Zumba is that they make exercising fun and make it accessible to everyone all over the world. It’s a movement,” Derulo said. “They get great global rhythms and pair it with a routine everyone can do that will give you a total body workout that feels more like party than exercise. I admire that because you don’t typically associate dancing with working out and that’s the beauty of it.”
No word on if Derulo will be popping up at more classes, but if he does now you won’t be surprised.
