“I like your swoop!” —Miley Cyrus to Justin Bieber during her MTV Video Music Awards opening monologue.

Yes, Bieber hit the carpet with a hair “swoop” that’s taking over Twitter. And we think we know who might have inspired it: 1997 Brad Pitt. Seriously, we immediately got déjà vu to the time Pitt and then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow had matching haircuts in the late ’90s. See the photo evidence below.

Bieber even has the same Emo look on his face, which happened to be Pitt’s go-to expression all through the late ’80s and early ’90s. As for the rest of the pop star’s outfit, he went for straight up LA cool in a black-and-white patterned button-down, ripped skinnies, a leather jacket and sand-colored desert boots.
