So why should Anderson Cooper care at all that Adam Levine has dyed his hair platinum blond?
Well, it seems The Voice mentor’s new style has invited comparisons to the CNN anchor and they are not all flattering ones.
During his occasional segment The Ridiculist this week, Cooper pointed out that someone wrote to Levine on Twitter: ‘Your hair makes you look like a much more attractive Anderson Cooper.’
Levine says he doesn’t know why he changed his hair but said on The Voice this week that ‘it just felt right.’
Says Cooper: ‘It may not be a big deal to Adam Levine but this is pretty much the platinum bomb heard round the world if you look at Twitter and some of the Shrapnel happens to be hitting yours truly.’
Cooper provides plenty of photographic side-by-side evidence that even with the platinum hair, the two men look nothing alike.
For example, while Levine was famously on the cover of People Magazine as ‘The Sexiest Man Alive,’ one of Cooper’s covers was for Web MD magazine.
‘Adam has moves like Jagger and I always thought I had moves like (fellow CNN anchor) Wolf Blizter.’
