Drake Shaved Off His Beard and the Internet Is Freaking Out
Drake has switched up his look for his upcoming hosting appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend and the Internet is freaking out. Drizzy’s steadfast female fanbase love his beard, so the new look has been an upsetting change. While some fans are laughing at the transformation, others are understandably upset and even angry at the man born Aubrey Graham for returning to the clean-shaven aesthetic he started his career with.
The rapper will serve as the host and musical guest on SNL tomorrow and the promo spots for the upcoming gig prove viewers are in for a hilarious show. The 6ix God was sporting the facial hair in those ads, which means the shaved beard is a last-minute change. Maybe Drizzy gets his face shaved for a pre-taped skit? Tune it to find out.
Fresh off the release of his fourth studio album, the already platinum-selling Views, Drake touched down in New York for a full press run this week. He’s already done the late-night TV circuit, appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to play faceketball and then SNL. After that, he’ll sit down with Ellen next Wednesday and will no doubt do a live rendition of his signature “Hotline Bling” dance.
As Drake gets in all this TV time, his next few appearances will be without his lauded beard. Fans who enjoyed seeing some facial hair on the OVO leader will be left with bittersweet feelings over the next few weeks. But rest assured ladies, it’s only hair — it grows back. Check out the funniest Twitter reactions to Drake’s new look above.
