John Travolta was inspired by a surprising source.
As much as you may want to forget about Pitbull, the Miami artist always seems to pop up at the most random times. Thankfully, he hasn't released much music in recent years. He's still living large off the success of his previous records. However, his bromance with John Travolta is leaving some people seriously confused. Especially after Mr. Worldwide influenced the actor to shave his head, mirroring his own look.
John Travolta recently debuted a new hairstyle, shaving his head and moving away from hairpieces and wigs. The actor has struggled with hair loss for years and now, he's simply embracing it by going with a more natural look. It turns out that, surprisingly enough, Pitbull influenced Travolta to just do it.

In an interview with Extra, the actor admits that Pitbull convinced him to shave his head. "A good friend, Armando Perez, Pitbull — he lives his life like this," explained John. "He would send pictures of me, I have all my hair, and he’d superimpose no hair and say, ‘I prefer this,’ so I thought… Maybe it’s time to do it."
According to the Huffington Post, the two initially crossed paths on the set of Gotti, which holds a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. So far, Travolta has been praised for the new look.
