Fleur East has switched up her look

Fleur looked like she had taken inspiration from ‘Loud’-era Rihanna when she embarked upon her makeover.

Her huge red afro looked similar to the one RiRi rocked back in January 2011, when many compared the singer’s look to ‘The Simpsons’ character Sideshow Bob.
