Has Taylor Swift turned her back on the curly community?

Rihanna recognizes just how much representation matters.
This past weekend, the Home movie opened to record-breaking box office numbers. Tip, the main character voiced by pop superstar Rihanna, has bouncy ringlet curls that make it just so hard not to enjoy watching in the animated DreamWorks flick.

David Beckham is in another underwear ad, but this time, we were staring at his hair.
Soccer superstar hunk David Beckham stopped by the Late Late Show with James Corden two nights ago. Both Beckham and Corden were stripped down to their skivvies, and 33 seconds into the video, James Corden points a blow dryer at David Beckham’s perfectly placed coiff. We laughed, and we stared–at David. Watch the video and let us know if you had to regain your composure like we did.
