Ummm…is that you, Drake?! The rapper uploaded — then deleted — a photo to Instagram in which he reveals he shaved his beard. Yup, all that scruff we loved is gone, and the Internet is totally freaking out about it! Unfortunately, fans aren’t exactly lovin’ this new look…
Who knew some facial hair could change someone’s look so drastically!? Drake, 29, basically looked unrecognizable in an Instagram selfie posted on May 13, in which he’s rockin’ a fresh-shaven face! Considering we’re SO used to seeing Drizzy with a beard — or at least some scruff — this new look was pretty shocking to fans…and they took to Twitter to let him know it.
The rapper has since-deleted the photo — he clearly didn’t realize how big of a stir it would cause! — but we obviously caught a screen grab! And if you’re totally hating Drake without a beard, don’t worry, because he made it clear in the pic’s caption that it’ll be back soon.
“Beard making an epic come back in 2 weeks… only for you @nbcsnl,” he wrote.” TUNE IN TMRW NIGHT AT 11:30 ON NBC.” Yup, Drake is the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live May 14, and for whatever reason, he wanted (or needed?) to be freshly shaved for the gig.
Unfortunately, not all of his fans are feelin’ it. The general consensus on Twitter seems to be that Drake needs to grow his facial hair back STAT, and people are mostly just freaking out because he looks so drastically different. Stream Drake’s hits on Amazon Music here!
Considering the 29-year-old just released his album Views on April 29, it’s the perfect time for him to get out there and spend the night at SNL. Of course, Drake is no stranger to the show: He made his first appearance as a performer in Oct. 2011, then took on both hosting and performing in Jan. 2014. Obviously, that went pretty well, because now he’s back to do it again!
