The star is rocking some wild new strands (get it)

So how did you start your week, stylewise? Did you wear a chic new dress or debut a spring-ready new mani? Or did you dye your hair cheetah-print and debut it on Good Morning America? Just Nick Cannon, then? Okay, let’s discuss.

As much as we would have liked to see Lara Spencer try to interview Cannon while he was wearing his controversial whiteface, the actor (and Mr. Mariah Carey) decided to promote his new album White People Party Music with a [insert cat pun here] new do instead. He teamed the unusual style with an all-white suit and sparkly loafers.

“Took like 5 hours to do this!” he bragged (we think?) on Instagram regarding the photo below. He also couldn’t resist a shot of his [another cat pun] abs (see above), which he captioned “I usually don’t do #Selfies but I think my new hairstyle is worth it!”

We’re delighted that someone is resurrecting Dennis Rodman’s hair game and intrigued by Cannon’s commitment to what we can’t imagine is a very permanent look. But we want to hear what you think, so tell us below.
