Sisqo isn’t just from Dru Hill; he’s also from Baltimore. The singer decided to take to his Instagram to show his support for the tragedy in his hometown. He’s so affected by it that he decided to shave off his platinum hair.
I sacrificed my hair as a symbol of support for the struggle that Baltimore & most inner-city youth face everyday. My hair has been my signature around the world since our careers started hand n hand with being a Baltimore native good,bad, or ugly. It wrenched my heart when I saw the way that we were being portrayed to the world media. The fact that I was unable to march on the streets of my city with my brothers & sisters physically made me feel as if I needed to make a statement that couldn’t be tainted, twisted, or misconstrued. I have worked with local schools, churches & youth groups in the past. Myself & DRU HILL are working to do more in the future. So hang in there young people…and remember think outside-of-the-box. Be better then the best & always remember intellect over emotion. #Baltimore#FreddieGray
So the shaved hair by itself probably doesn’t mean much, but props to Sisqo if he’s serious about doing more for the community.
