Rihanna Dons Dreadlocks For Idol Finale Performance

Rihanna is showing off her island roots with her new hairstyle. During her performance on last nights (May 23) American Idol finale show, the 24-year-old pop singer debut her new Bob Marley-inspired dreadlocks while performing her single “Where Have You Been?”

Rihanna initially gave fans a sneak peek at the dreads earlier in the day after tweeting, “Wake bake shake dem dreads,” which included a photo with the locks laying over her face.

We’re sure many folks won’t be feeling it, but it’s probably short term, since she insisted it was a childhood dream.

When asked on Twitter about the new look, she replied: “their HOT! ;)” since I was 14, but mama Fent’z wasn’t havin it! Hehe.”
