hit up the red carpet of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards last night with a hot new look (January 12, 2014).
The superstar crooner has faced the wrath of fans begging him to cut his ‘baby fro’ over the past few months, which he grew as part of his portrayal of boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in an upcoming film project.

Usher shed a lot of weight to get ‘boxer buff’ and now it seems he’s also shed his baby fro. The megastar is now rocking a more dapper, clean cut look, complete with ‘man bling’.
We’ve come to expect a certain amount of red-carpet fancy from Usher “Ershur” Raymond, and his oxblood Calvin Klein tuxedo at last night’s Golden Globes ceremony was right on point. But then he totally outdid himself by adding a diamond brooch.
This is a real breakthrough in man jewelry: It’s not just a ring, a pair of huge diamond studs, or even a Southwestern bolo tie, but a vintage-looking diamond brooch.
Before finally shedding his hated ‘baby fro’, Usher and his barber took fans through musical hair history with a few ‘throwback’ styles.

Cute couple Keri Hilson
and her baller boo Serge Ibaka posed for the ‘selfie’ above as they sent out a special Christmas message a few weeks ago.
The singer/songwriter had been rocking box braids for many months, and could possibly be blamed for re-trending the ‘Poetic Justice’ inspired look…

It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn!!
Jennifer Hudson hit the red carpet of BET’s Black Girls Rock with a brand new look Saturday night (October 26, 2013).
Hudson has worn her hair in various styles over the years, but she recently shed her latest lace front wig, opting for a short sleek cropped doo.

Singer Keyshia Cole
has changed her look (again)…

The superstar songstress, who recently rocked a cotton candy pink updoo, has apparently opted for a more conservative look and switched back to black.
While I doubt if the change is permanent (most normally aren’t), I kinda like Keyshia’s new ‘mommy makeover.’

Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta
and her blond lacefront is laughing all the way to to bank this month as she is featured on the cover of not one… but TWO black haircare magazines.

Leakes, who is riding high off of the success of her RHOA spin-off show, ‘I Dream of Nene: The Wedding‘ has finally managed to embrace her inner White woman by rocking a Caucasian colored style for the past few seasons.
And while YOU may not care for her platinum locs, Leakes is clearly opting to stick with her color choice for a while longer.

If Sherri Shepphard from ABC’s The View, and “NBC’s” Star Jones were to ever have a baby, I believe that child would be CBS’s Sheryl Underwood.
Think I’m a bit harsh in my opinion of the talk show host/comedian? Well keep reading…
The Talk, a broke down, medicore, carbon-copy of ABC’s ‘The View” (and let’s ALL be honest about that one) discussed a “hot topic” recently that has me channeling my inner ‘Whoopi Gholdberg’ screaming, ‘what the hail?’.
Get ready to clutch your pearls cause we’re going in… apparently homegirl has much problemo with Black woman who wear natural hair.
[Flashback: To Weave or Not to Weave? “F*ck This Natural Hair Ish!” (VIDEO)]
And while I’ve personally always stood by the “live and let live” mantra of life, when this Gremlin chose to use her national soapbox to condemn Black women who wear their own hair — when she could be using that same soapbox to inspire, and or bring awareness to black issues that REALLY MATTER– it totally rubbed me the wrong way.
