Chris Brown debuted a new look on Instagram this week and it has fans likening his updated hairstyle to another pop sensation. The "No Guidance" artist took to social media to share a different kind of "heat" by debuting a very straight and very bleached blond hairstyle. In the since-deleted photo, Brown is seen with his eyes closed and his head bowed down.

The picture intended to show support to those affected by coronavirus but his shocking new look had fans talking about a completely different subject matter.

Fans were quick to draw comparisons between Brown and Bieber, citing that the former was hopping on his style bandwagon by rocking a similar cut and color as him.

One Twitter user commented, "Jay Electronica dropped an album and Chris Brown has transformed into Justin Bieber. I didn’t see these verses in Revelations but here we are."

Another fan jokingly compared the two singers to one another in their tweet by posing the million-dollar question, "Is this Chris Bieber? Justin Brown?"

One user took notice of Brown's much straighter hair texture and alluded to it being a perm. "LOL. Chris Brown perms [and] bleaches his hair to look like Justin Bieber. many things I can say here," another on-looker tweeted.

"This guy gets progressively more questionable as each year passes it seems. What’s next? Maybe this has distracted him from woman beating/harassment for a while," the user continued.

"Chris Brown will forever be my celebrity crush but ion know what he be doing with his hair he still fine tho," a fourth commentator tweeted.


In the past, Bieber has made it a point to mention how much he admires Brown's talent and artistry. He has even called the long-time artist "the G.O.A.T.", aka the greatest of all-time. Bieber has been making waves in the R&B scene since returning after his five-year hiatus with the album Changes. And just like Brown's hairstyle has fans wondering if he's becoming Bieber, some are speculating Bieber is turning into Brown as well.

A fan on Twitter wrote definitively, "Justin Bieber wants to be Chris Brown. Chris Brown wants to be Justin Bieber."

"Chris Brown [and] Justin Bieber are turning into each other," another fan tweeted about Brown's blond debut.

To be fair, Brown frequently experiments with new looks, particularly when it comes to his hair choices. The musician is known for being eccentric in his aesthetic choices and that extends to his hair. The "Loyal" singer and father-of-two has experimented with platinum, lavendar, blue/green, teal, and rainbow-colored hair in the past. His Grammys 2020 look was one for the books: he rocked half-magenta and half-blue hair.

Perhaps what's more striking about this particular time is how straight his hair is and the cut and style he has matching it.

Either way, Bieber hasn't publicly commented on the alleged homage to his look by Brown. We're certain the "Confident" Canadian singer wouldn't feel any type of way about it. However, being that they have a sorta-kinda bromance throughout the years as artists that mutually respect one another, it'd be dope to see the commentary surrounding Brown's new look to turn into jokes between the two artists publicly.
