Saweetie‘s new hairdo is the talk of the town.
On Friday (Dec. 24), the “Icy Grl” rapper debuted her new look — a blonde buzz cut — on social media. The haircut, which is a drastic change from her signature long tresses, immediately drew reactions from users who mainly seem to be in favor of the transformation.
“In love with Saweetie’s new buzz cut,” tweeted journalist @NolaMarianna. “She looks soooooooo GOOD!”

While some people questioned the reason for her haircut, fans of Saweetie jumped to her defense. Twitter user @elijahmgn called the critics “weird,” while @timabigprettyy insisted that she’s just “trying to grow her natural curls back.”

Saweetie doesn’t have to be going through a midlife crisis just because she shaved off her hair, she’s trying to grow her natural curls back. Hair grows back! She’s still beautiful

The new cut also drew comparisons to Amber Rose.
“My babes Saweetie going for the Amber Rose look!!” @Bryan09129860 penned in a tweet. “I LOVE I LOVE!!!”
“Amber rose walked so Saweetie could run,” added @TheLoganWyss.

Saweetie‘s new photos are part of a series of posts, including a twerking video, that capture her as she enjoys what appears to be a much-needed getaway. She previously revealed that she would spend the Christmas holiday on a tropical island with the hope to rest after a year of nonstop work.
“Balance needs to happen,” she added. “I feel like I’m being run down to the ground right now and my body doesn’t feel good. I’ve had mental breakdowns and it’s just really stressful, but it’s nice to be acknowledged because it lets me know that my hard work isn’t going unnoticed.”
