We’re debating if Adam Levine still has the moves like Jagger.
The Maroon 5 frontman, 40, debuted a daring hairstyle on Instagram this week. Dubbing his new ‘do a “corn hawk,” the former judge of “The Voice” is currently sporting three bleach-blond cornrows down the center of his head with shaved sides and — wait for it — a rattail.
Naturally, fans are shook over Levine’s so-called “corn hawk,” including celebrity stylist Bradley Irion, 47, who has styled “Orange Is the New Black” transgender actress Laverne Cox, former “Real Housewives of New York” star Kelly Killoren Bensimon and actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, to name a few.
“It’s not necessarily his best look, to say the least,“ Irion tells The Post. “It looks like he’s trying hard to be something he’s not. Personally, I’m not looking for this look to trend.”
Just like Irion, people on Twitter are not having it. “Dear Adam Levine…look at your life and then look at your choices,” one person criticized.
“Adam Levine putting cornrows in his hair screams of desperation. Dying career, figured he can stir the pot…” another chimed in.
People aren’t just throwing major shade, they’re also saying that Levine may be going through a midlife crisis. “I think Adam Levine is going through a Mid Life crisis. It’s okay Adam, I keep trying to make bangs work,” joked one person.
“Adam Levine…..is everything okay at home??????????????” added another.
Some are even accusing the “Girls Like You” singer of cultural appropriation. “Listen, I’m all about rockin’ your own style and ‘you doing you.’ But, Someone please tell Adam Levine that dreadlocks for white dudes is NEVER OK,” wrote one angered fan.
“Will he be charged with cultural appropriation? Just checking to see which direction the offended winds are blowing today,” questioned another.
Cultural appropriation or not, these reactions spark another necessary debate: Whose new hairstyle is worse: Levine’s or “Stranger Things” star Joe Keery?
