Blake Shelton’s mullet is going to make a major comeback.
As the world continues to face the coronavirus outbreak and the financial fallout that is coming along with it, the superstar is vowing to provide a beacon of hope to his fans by growing back his mullet.
The superstar, who sported the iconic hairstyle in the early 2000s, took to Twitter to share the news. Explaining that he discussed the idea with his longtime girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, he decided that it’s officially time to bring back his beloved longer locks. Besides, he pointed out, all of his previous commitments are cancelled for the time being.
“I am growing my mullet back as a symbol of hope or some shit like that,” he professed. “Anyway, it’s coming back! For real.”

Shelton famously sported a mullet for the first few years of his career. During a 2017 appearance on NBC’s TODAY Show, the “God’s Country” singer looked back on a few old photos of himself and couldn’t help but laugh at his old hairstyle.
“I mean, that is ridiculous,” he said. “Why didn’t my family or friends or somebody tell me how stupid I looked?”
Three years, later, it appears Shelton has changed his mind.
“Stay tuned…” he told his followers, hinting that his mullet was already on its way back.
