We are no strangers to celebs who tweet photos of their real hair in an effort to prove to us that they are either not bald or don’t need to wear weaves. That trend doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon either.
We all remember the photo that Nicki Minaj tweeted of her hair back in 2012 with the words ‘No chemicals. No perm.’ right?
At the time a Madame Noire writer took issue with it because Nicki did not show her face in the picture.
Of course, this photo did not include her face, so you’re just supposed to assume that this is her and her hair.
Along with folks like Beyoncé, Nicki’s real head of hair is one of those things many folks have been wanting to see (like Big Foot).
Now a few days ago on the 20th March, Nicki was back tweeting about her mane complete with picture of her showing off her grazing waist length hair. This time she simply said #LongHairDontCare #HangTime #ImaWearItOutWhenItTouchesMyASS =P
Quick as a shot Madame Noire was giving side eye and doubting the authenticity of the picture because Nicki again chose not to show her face in the picture.
Maybe Nicki didn’t get the memo or she simply doesn’t care to prove that the beautiful tresses are hers.
Maybe I’m naive but I tend to believe what I am told (and a lot of what I read too) and although it’s safe to say that some things that you read on line should be taken with a grain of salt, I find it implausible that anyone would go to the trouble that Nicki has to tweet hair that’s not her own . . . twice.
Whether or not it’s her real hair, it probably doesn’t even matter. One commenter wrote:
If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound?
If your beautiful hair is constantly under wigs* and no one sees it, does it make a difference to anyone besides yourself?
