John Travolta finally opened up about embracing his new look and credits it look to Pitbull, He said he was int he was inspired to shave his head by his "good friend" Pitbull after the rapper kept sending him photos. "A good friend, Armando Perez, Pitbull, he lives his life like this," Travolta said. "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." The actor debuted his new look on his Instagram on January 6 in a photo he shared alongside his 18-year-old daughter Elle Bleu. Travolta told "Extra" that the new look has made life "simpler," but he didn't anticipate the reactions his shaved head brought. "The biggest fun has been just the response to it," he said. "I felt like Zoolander or something — I came out and my new look became headline news. Good for you, John!
