Justin Bieber Gets Mixed Reaction To New Dreadlocks

(Radio.com) On Sunday, Justin Bieber premiered his latest questionable 'do--matted blonde dreadlocks. What could go wrong? Reviews were divided into several camps:

There were diehard Beliebers who'd be cool if Justin got a Marcia Clark perm; then, there were casual critics who weren't impressed with the new look. Finally, there were people of color who deemed his dreadlocks cultural appropriation.

"People are annoyed cause when black people wear this style they are stereotyped as druggies and are 'unkempt' look at Zendaya for example," wrote one Instagram user.

"She had fake dreads and she was stereotyped, But when people such as JB [] wears them its suddenly 'the latest trend.'" See the photo here.
