John Legend Hits Out At ‘Hairline’ Critics

Published: Monday 28th Jun 2010 by Sam

Following last night’s BET Awards, John Legend was the subject of Twitter fodder, after his hairline (yes you read right) became a trending topic on the popular site.

It turns out, though, that the Grammy winner is none too impressed with the situation. Check out his response, ironically made on Twitter literally minutes ago, after the jump…

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.

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!

And to the rest of y’all, I love you and thanks for the support. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming….

While I expected a more refined response from John ( and found his tit-for-tat antics a lil playground-ish), this kinda underscores the fact that celebs are human-beings too.

    HE’S SOOOO RIGHT IT’S SAD THAT PEOPLE COULDN’T FOCUS ON THE FACT THAT HE GOT AN AWARD FOR HIS HUMANITARIAN EFFORTS BUT INSTEAD DECIDE TO FOCUS ON SOMETHING AS TRVIAL AS HIS HAIRLINE!!!!

    Oh boo hoo

    -_-

    someone needed to tell this fool that your hairline isnt supposed to start at the back of your head.

    #HAIR TRANSPLANT FOR FLOP LEGEND.

    John Legend my sweetie, sort it out boo, boo !

    and don’t hit out at your fans for telling you the truth.

    *WHO OWNS THE THRONE?*

    You are killing my soul softly with your lil catch phrase:

    *WHO OWNS THE THRONE?*

    *YOU DO MOMMY!*

    I can’t…..

  10. MARQUEST June 28, 2010

    Why did I feel like he gonna say someone hack his twitter account lol

  11. channelexor June 28, 2010

    Dont respond? WTF? He’s human too.
    I bet if they were talking about y’all ugly asses, y’all would be so quick to respond.
    He has every right to respond because people are too stupid worrying about something thats so nonsense instead of worrying and applauding the man for what he’s been doing helping ppl.

  12. ADE June 28, 2010

    @CHANNELEXOR
    By all means address it if you must but why do it in such a childish manner? “And to the haters, I’m still smarter, more talented, more successful and better looking than u. So fall back.” Really? I think John knows better than that!

  13. mike June 28, 2010

    Uuuuuuuuuum that was a bit tacky. “I’m better looking than you?”….WTF

  14. CityLights June 28, 2010

    If he was so much smarter he should have just ignored it. Yes, his response was just as childish as those that made such a silly thing a trendy topic.

  15. Richard June 28, 2010

    I thought the trending topic was funny lol. Most of the people trending it were his own fans. He should have a sense of humor.

    GAAAAAY!

  16. channelexor June 28, 2010

    @ADE
    But was he lying? When the truth hurts ppl get mad. John Legend s*** all over his haters and he has every right to say what he said. Now ROGER THAT & RETWEET IT!

  17. number1k9 June 28, 2010

    Swizz Beatz hairline is worse! And he got a beak for a nose!

  18. raraskils June 28, 2010

    um…why he gotta be insecure and childish?
    if u KNOW ur better looking/successful etc…u wouldnt hafta announce on twitter to make the whole world believe u. i just lost an ounce of respect for this guy. he’s such a divo :/

  19. TOP NOTCH DIVA June 28, 2010

    LOL!!!

  20. royalkev June 28, 2010

    John, stop being so girly and ignore these people. I would think that he see all this drama comes with the territory. If he’s been famous for 6 years, he sure is not acting like it.

  21. MV June 29, 2010

    Is he really famous? He’s known, sure, but what has he done since 2005? Green light? The youtube video with his junk?

  22. SWEXY June 29, 2010

    Love John Legend AND I love his hair line!!!

  23. NIQUE June 29, 2010

    Well childish or not that s*** was hilarious! Celebrities are people and folks need to know that sometimes they will go hard back. I’m glad he got it off his chest and I hope he just keeps giving us beautiful music and being who he is. lmao.

  24. BENJAMIN June 29, 2010

    Ok, what was the point of responding to something like this?

  25. KNUCK June 29, 2010

    THE REAL KII IS THE DREAM PAYING FOR ADS ON THIS SITE AFTER THE FIASCO OF THE PAST WEEK..

    KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII..

    He basically said I CAN OWN YOUR ASS IF I WANTED TO skdfjshfudh

  26. TJ June 29, 2010

    LMAO! I knew I wasn’t the only one who noticed the hairline and the un-even shape-up!

    But FOR REAL, he was on stage because he was being celebrated for his hard work in efforts to better the conditions in Africa and was recieving a Humanitarian award.
    Let THAT be the thing that people pay attention to!!!!!!
    Not the friggin hair!
