John Legend’s Hairline Becomes Trending Topic on Twitter

On June 27, John Legend was honored with BET’s Humanitarian Award at the annual award show, but apparently the singer’s hairline was more of a focal point than his charity work. Legend’s, er — ‘uneven’ hairline became a trending topic on Twitter, when viewers began to comment on it, with the hashtag #JohnLegendsHairLine.

After noticing the trend, Legend took to his Twitter account, first to thank BET for their support and then to berate viewers for their pettiness. “Btw, my hairline has been the same since I was a kid. Can’t believe some people are obsessing about it now. I’ve been famous for 6 yrs now,” he wrote. “And to the haters, I’m still smarter, more talented, more successful and better looking than u. So fall back.”

“Sorry y’all. Couldn’t believe my hairline was a trending topic. Get a life!” Legend’s rant continued.

When a few hours elapsed and Legend had composed himself, he issued an apology for getting angry, and decided to put the drama behind him. “My lesson: don’t be distracted by nonsense and focus on what matters,” he wrote. “I shouldn’t have stooped. We all live and learn. Back to songwriting.”

John Legend’s collaborative cover album ‘Wake Up!” will be released on September 21.
