With the return of the mighty "Eastbound & Down" this weekend, one thing is on everybody's mind: Kenny Powers' cornrows. Cornrows, a traditional West African hairstyle made popular by the Black Pride movement, are made by tightly braiding hair in a row. Did you notice something in that last sentence? Words like "African" and "Black Pride"? Yeah, cornrows just aren't for white guys.
Unless the white guy is Kenny Powers. He can get away with them because "Eastbound & Down" is a brilliant comedy, but the same can't be said of some other famous white dudes who've rocked the row. Here are 6 other cornrowed, pasty celebs who are almost certainly regretting the day they got braided.
Dude has spent years living down his dorky Mickey Mouse Club/boy band past, and is doing a good job at it. But we still haven't forgiven him for the cornrows (and the eyebrow waxers — what the hell is going on there??). Maybe he should try a Jheri curl?
Two countries separated by an ocean but united by a common hairstyle. We'll just categorize this one as "English people doing stuff we don't understand." It's like having food called "spotted dick" or calling cigarettes "fags."
These cornrows are actually too perfect, and fully capture the K-Fed aesthetic. The aesthetic of looking like a tool, that is.
This is the Ginger 'row (not to be confused with the Australian animal, the Gingeroo). Rose most likely keeps this hairstyle because it doesn't take a lot of work. Remeber, this is the guy who took 15 years to make "Chinese Democracy."
Jared sported cornrows for his role as a thug in "Panic Room." Unbelievably, it wasn't even close to his worst hair decision.
We'll give the guy a little credit because these are just for the upcoming movie "Stone." But he did date Courtney Love, so he's crazy enough to do anything.
