Demi Lovato just about broke the Internet on Tuesday after plastering Twitter with photos of her new “IDGAF” haircut.
From Fifth Harmony’s Dinah Jane Hansen — “Hot,” she tweeted with a row of fire Emojis — to Perez Hilton — “Excuse me while I go catch my breath and cry because I can’t handle all this fierceness,” — Lovatics of all ages went nuts when seeing the singer’s surprise ’do.
So when we here at MTV News sat down with Cole Plante, who serves as the house DJ on Demi’s Neon Lights Tour, we couldn’t help but notice how similar the pair’s cuts and colors were.
“I’m not going to make any comment about inspiration but I think somebody might have inspired her to get a certain haircut,” the 17-year-old laughed when asked about the striking resemblance. “It was cool, I saw the Twitter picture first that she posted where everyone was freaking out about the hair and I was like, ’Oh, I wonder what it looks like,’ and then she came out onstage and I was just like, ’look at that, it’s [shaved on] the same side,’ so it’s pretty cool.”
Whether or not he was in fact Demi’s muse, Cole says he’s a total fan of her new locks.
“She has that, like, really nice, vibrant pink and now I have this red, [which] will eventually turn pink. So at one point on this tour we’ll have the same exact hair. I’ll just let this come down a couple of inches,” he said while exhibiting their difference in length.
Having been on the road with the songstress since she kicked things off back in February, the high school junior had a hard time picking just one moment to be his favorite. A memory he’ll never forget, however, happened while standing side stage during one of the “Heart Attack” singer’s sets. “I was singing to her and she was singing and it was on the video screen and that was pretty cool.”
