Janet Jackson Rocks Super Short Hair: Love It or Hate It?

05/20/2010 at 03:00 PM ET


Bye-bye long, wavy tresses! Janet Jackson was snapped out and about in London yesterday sporting super short hair, making her the latest A-lister to join the increasingly long list of celebrities who are foregoing their long locks in favor of boyish crops. The iconic performer debuted the gelled-back look while dining in the British city, where she is on hand to promote her latest film, Why Did I Get Married, Too? While Janet’s had a few modish bobs in the past, we’ve never seen her go quite this short or boyish.  And though the new look is a far cry from the natural curls and shoulder-length styles that she’s been rocking recently, we aren’t opposed to the singer’s new low-maintenance style. Tell us: What do you think about Janet Jackson’s newly cropped slicked-back look? –David Yi

I love the look. It shaves off years from her age. I mean you can hardly say she’s over thirty with the new look. I’ve known her with only short hair and this look is so refreshing….

do we really care? she didnt ask our opinion to get it cut yeah it’s cute so what if she changes her mind i’m sure the hair stylist is not 2 yards away with weave in hand…. all i’m saying is our opinion doesnt matter leave them alone

Fresh and clean…I love it. She always looks beautiful and from time to time a girl needs a change. Halle Berry changed from long to short, Toni Braxton went from short to long and now back to short. Janet has worn her hair short before and has done so many different styles, so why would anyone be astounded. More women should opt to wearing their real hair, that way their dates, boyfriends, fans or whomever can see that these people they idolize are just as human as the rest of us. Go Janet.
