Liam Nazarek is a 16 year old Pincher Creek athlete. He has been growing his hair for a year with the plan to donate it in September to make wigs for kids with cancer, an issue close to his heart. On Wednesday evening this week he was forced to choose: cut his hair or be barred from playing for his baseball team, Pincher Creek's Junior Dust Devils.
Taylor Swift just can't keep her hands to herself.
Singer Abel Tesfaye, better known as the Weeknd, says that when he first met Swift she kept "petting" his hair.
He described the bizarre encounter with Taylor Swift in Rolling Stone:
"But the whole time she was talking," he says, "she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it — she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I'm not going to be like, 'Hey, can you stop?' I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that's when I was like, 'I definitely need a drink.'"
For those clueless individuals out there, touching a black person's hair is normally a cultural no-no. And it really doesn't help Swift's image when she also makes music videos like this.
