Is Jedward’s Changing Hair Symptomatic of Something More?

The red tops and gossip columns have been bustling today with the news that twins John and Edward Grimes, more commonly known as Jedward, have been papped in LA with non identical hairstyles!! 

The shock news has taken the media by storm, as websites look back over past hairstyles, with one even calling it ‘the end of days’: what we’d like to know is, why are Jedward in LA and why are the paps over there so fascinated with them?

Could it be due to the fact that the duo, who have been writing and producing their own music for several years now, recently announced their desire to represent the UK in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest?

Speaking recently to Ken Sweeney of the Irish Sun, the twins, who were twice voted to represent their native country Ireland, qualifying for the final and beating the UK on both occasions, stated that they saw it as an ‘amazing opportunity’.

Jedward, who like to record their music in LA, recently tweeted their excitement about a newly recorded track, promising to make the video (John and Edward produce all their own music videos from start to finish) ASAP. Could this be the song they are putting forward to the BBC?

Could it also be connected to the fact that John and Edward recently attended an event at Redfoo’s Party Rock Mansion? Everyone who was anyone was there…and John and Edward know everyone!

Whatever the reason, Jedward are increasingly seen as hot property on both sides of the Atlantic; clearly there are more things afoot that a simple change in hairstyle.
