At the end of December, Meek Mill decided to offer women some unsolicited tips on what they should do with their hair in 2019, and it included leaving wigs behind.
Despite the initial annoyed response from ladies to his urging that in “2019 take them wigs off pleaseeeeee,” the rapper stood by his comments, taking things a step further last week.
“Lace front wigs are wackkkk! I’m protesting them,” he tweeted. “I just hate when you see that lace cap line in front all slicked down and the net in the middle. We letting y’all have everything else …. ask y’all man how he feel lol.”
He added, “And I can still be attracted to a woman wearing them … but my thoughts be like ‘is that a wig.'”
And of course, some other men (and a few misguided women) agreed with him. Even Peter Thomas, formerly of Real Housewives of Atlanta, decided to give his two cents on what women need to do with their hair, despite the fact that he has none on his head.
“I love women, love Black women, oh my god I love y’all,” he said. “But I also love Black women to wear their natural hair. If you want to process it, if you want to iron it, if you want to add extension to it, I’m all good with all of that. But ya’ll gotta know that everything is not for everybody.”
None of it makes sense considering the fact that women don’t run around feeling comfortable enough to tell men that they need to forgo certain hairstyles (or get rid of their hair altogether when it’s clear they are losing it). And yet, too many guys feel they can speak on what looks best on women (even as they go on and pursue women with hairstyles they claim we need to all give up). But we say that these men should keep that same energy with other guys who are trying to make the most…let’s just say “interesting”…hairstyles a thing. From Travis Scott’s blonde braids to Usher’s pompadour and every style Yung Joc has worn in the last year or two, fellas need to stop worrying about wigs and get on their peers about these looks. Truly, “everything is not for everybody.”
