Bieber takes a cut at Brady’s hair

Tom Brady’s catching more grief for his Bieberesque hairdo.

This time from Justin Bieber himself.

Wednesday night on his Twitter page, the 16-year-old Canadian pop star, under the alias “Shawty Mane,” released a video showing off his rap skills over a beat made popular by Harlem rappers Cam’Ron and Vado’s in their record “Speaking in Tungs.” In the short YouTube clip, Bieber steps to the mic and calls out Brady for his hairstyle (at the 25-second mark in the video above):

Sack like a sacker, Call up Mr. Brady, Tell him leave his hair to the guy that sings ‘Baby.’

During the Brady portion of the rap, Bieber… errr Shawty Mane… throws an imaginary football and runs his fingers through his hair.


According to the Globe’s Shalise Manza Young, Brady responded today, saying “Julian looks more like Beiber,” referring to Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.

The Herald’s Ian Rapoport also mentioned Bieber’s new rap to Brady and described the quarterback’s reaction as “dumbfounded.”

“Really? Wow. You know, I’ve never listened to his music,” Brady said when hearing about the Bieber clip.

The hairy subject made its way onto ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption as well today. During the word game, hosts Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon are asked to complete the following sentence: Justin Bieber calling out Tom Brady is ___________ . “Outrageous,” answered Kornheiser, while admitting that Bieber had the haircut first. “Imbecilic,” answered Wilbon, who questioned Kornheiser’s obsession with the subject of hair.


The Patriots star QB recently said his wife Gisele was responsible for the length of his hair and he would have to run it by her before he gets it cut.

Brady and Bieber... separated at barber?

On Sunday, CBS NFL analyst Charley Caserly reported that Brady had a heated altercation with former teammate Randy Moss in which Moss allegedly told him to cut his hair because he looked like a girl. Brady denied that such a confrontation rook place.

“He’s never made fun of my hair, when everyone else seems to want to make fun of my hair,” Brady said by his locker in Foxborough yesterday. “But he [Moss] never has.”


On Tuesday, the folks at the Wall Street Journal, inspired by Brady’s ‘do, had some stylists and a Photoshop expert to do computerized makeovers of a few NFL quarterbacks and they whipped it into a neat interactive graphic.
