Usher Cuts Hair After Mom Signs Petition


The ‘fro is no more. After his mother filed a petition for him to get rid of the his hairy do, Usher brought back his sleek shape-up just in time for The Golden Globes Sunday (Jan. 12).

The singer has been keeping tabs on his forthcoming role in the film Hands of Stone, where he plays boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard and let his locks flow to truly embody the character.

“My commitment to his character demands that I not only physically get ready, but also become him,” Ursh said in the November issue of Men’s Health magazine.

His 1.3 million followers can attest that the 35-year-old triple threat has definitely become Sugar Ray with a baby afro and six pack to match.

His mother wasn’t such a fan of his new look though. Usher posted a picture last Thursday of a hand written petition where his mom Joanetta Patten was the first to provide her John Hancock that called for him to “cut that hair off. Now. Yesterday.” The caption read, “Relax People…you’ll get what you want on Sunday.”

As promised, the “Trading Places” singer came back with a fresh cut just in time to walk the 2014 Golden Globes red carpet as one of the night’s best dressed men.
