Brady’s hair is up to him: he’s earned it

Let’s get this out of the way: Justin Bieber is a corporate, manufactured-image, coddled, overhyped, shallow little child. If he didn’t have those younger-Ryan-Sheckler-without-a-dark-side angelic looks and perfect, spherical brown locks, no one would care about him. Everything about him has been manicured by Island Records to attract tweenage girls, and therefore tweenage girls are ridiculously attracted to him. There’s no element of hard work, just a pretty boy with a nice voice exploited by a bunch of middle-aged men. Now that I’ve cleared that up, it has recently become apparent that Tom Brady’s new hairstyle resembles that of Bieber’s. Personally, I think he looks more like the dude from Kings of Leon, but that’s not the point. I’m not going to argue that his hair is better because it isn’t. I mean, he does look stupid. However, as perhaps the best quarterback of the last decade, Brady has the right to do whatever he wants: not so from the corporate kid who has someone else write asinine “battle rap” lyrics for him, records them in a studio, then makes an official video for it calling it a "freestyle." Some writers have claimed that Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, is responsible for the hair, and won’t let him cut it. However, it’s the same with Bieber and his handlers. The difference is that I don’t have an Island Records A&R poster on my bedroom wall. Brady’s a grown man. Let him keep his damn hair.
