Travis Scott is the latest rapper to test out being a blond.
Scott’s newly-bleached hairstyle first popped up on his girlfriend Kylie Jenner‘s Instagram Stories on September 1. The following day, fans shared videos of Scott’s performance of “Sicko Mode” at Marquee Las Vegas, during which the 26-year-old star removed his baseball cap to reveal a head full of dip-dyed peroxide braids.
There’s been a lot of speculation on social media as to why the rapper decided to make such a bold change. Some followers say the blonde ends are a tribute to Scott’s late friend XXXtentacion, who wore his hair in a similar style.
Others have pointed out that this decision came just days after Scott’s collaborator Young Thug also went blonde, hinting that perhaps a joint album is in the works.
But there’s one more theory the “Astroworld” hitmaker’s fans seem to have overlooked: Perhaps Jenner just had some blonde dye left over after touching up her roots.
The stars, who have been dating since connecting at Coachella in April 2017, recently posed for their first-ever photo shoot together for the cover of GQ‘s August issue. In the interview, it was revealed that Scott hates restaurants, with Jenner telling the magazine they typically “don’t go on dates.”
But that doesn’t mean they’re not spending time together. In fact, their bond is stronger than ever, and when asked whether they’re worried about the so-called “Kardashian curse” — the belief that all the men who date a member of the famous family ultimately end up derailing — the couple was completely unfazed.
“Kylie actually likes me for me. … I’m not into all the other s—,” he said. “I don’t get involved. I’m over here. Kylie is different.”
