From the ferocious world of heavy metal to the Southern rock cats with that blues influence all the way to the puzzling UK hip hop scene, behold my choices for the best beards in music today.
Beards probably aren’t the most stylish thing one can wear right now, but Minnesota Timberwolves forwards Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Love are both sporting some gnarly facial hair this season. It’s been deemed so gnarly, apparently, that they’re now good enough to judge beard contests.
The Wolves had fans send in pictures of their beard for the chance to win four tickets to an upcoming game in Minnesota with the winner being the man with the best beard. Pekovic and Love, along with a dude from the Minneapolis Beard and Mustache Club, were the judges.
Going about his daily routine, Shia LaBeouf opted for a caffeinated boost in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon (March 8).
The “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” stud looked a bit rough around the edges, sporting a bushy beard, slicked back ponytail and a woodsy cardigan sweater as he moved quickly past a swarm of shutterbugs.
If you live under a rock like I do, then perhaps this is the first time you’ve heard of the “Epic Beard Man” meme and its origins. The Youtube video of an altercation between a 67 year-old white man and a 40-something black man on a bus, which culminates in the older man punching the younger man several times in the face, has scored nearly 5,700,000 hits and become an internet meme.
DUBAI // Given his ambivalence to cold water, it might be deduced that Tiago Venancio had grown his lengthy beard to keep himself warm ahead of this week’s trip to London.
London, Mar 10 (ANI): David De Gea has declared he will keep his beard until either Manchester United or the Spanishteam wins big. The Man U keeper gave some hair-raising performances early in the current campaign, though he has been razor-sharp of late. “The beard pleases both me and my girlfriend. I want to keep it until United win the Premier League or Spain’s team wins the Olympics,” the Sun quoted him as saying. In January 2012, De Gea was confirmed as hyperopic although this is not thought to have affected his performances for United. It has been reported that he will have corrective eye surgery in the summer of 2012. (ANI)
