Rose McGowan’s hair just keeps getting shorter and shorter. As People Magazine’s Style News pointed out, it went from a ponytail to a bob in July, three weeks ago it was cut to right below the ears, and two weeks ago she made it into a full chop.
How does she describe her new haircut? Her official haircut Instagram post came with the following caption: “I look like Hitler’s stoned cousin #newhair #notstoned #hitlersucked”.
E! News kindly made a list of potential comparisons McGowan could have made to describe her new haircut, instead of choosing to showcase a genocidal dictator:
1. Charlie Chaplin without a moustache
2. Anne Hathaway
3. Hilary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry
4. Orange Is the New Black‘s Big Boo
They also suggested she take her cue from other celebrities like Miranda Lambert, who simply said “Fresh cut! Fresh color!” in her own Instagram post. Although Lambert did not get it cut as short as McGowan, there are celebrities out there with short haircuts who managed to avoid a Hitler reference, like Kaley Cuoco who wrote: ” “Thank you @clsymonds for bringing out my inner Peter Pan 🙂 #byronbeverlyhills #justcutitoff”.”
It makes you wonder why McGowan couldn’t have just made a safe Peter Pan reference.
While McGowan may have been inspired by Hitler, the singer managed to be a source of inspiration herself for Amber Rose at the VMAs this year. Described by People Magazine as “a sparkly series of chains linked to create the illusion of a dress, over a sparkly G-string,” Rose’s dress was a shoutout to the dress McGowan wore to the 1998 VMAs. Rose even made it on Billboard’s list of the best 2014 VMA moments with the comment, “Nice throwback, Amber!”
