A$AP Rocky has a new look - or a new "drip" - and he now resembles Tweety Bird's grandmother. The New York fashion icon and rapper stepped out last night at the 2018 LACMA Art And Film Gala In Los Angeles.

A$AP made sure to only wear top designers - including Gucci and Tom Ford. But despite all the high priced fashion - the look still fell flat.

People on social media are already going hard against A$AP, they were also quick to poke fun at Rocky's look saying he looked like Whitney Houston in "The Bodyguard [1992]," or a Russian grandmother.. 

Here are a few comments that we managed to capture:

Fam wtf is this n*gga on he tryna be granny for tweety bird in lebrons space jam 2

Boondocks predicted this

Lookin like one of dem Muslim ladies with the hijab 

"Who's [sic] babushka is this?" one person commented. 

"When you pretend to be ur mom to call out of school," said another. 

"My mom wears s--- like that on her head when she's doing laundry," added another.

But Rocky owned the look and encouraged other men to do the same.

"I just wanted to show off my babushka today, honestly," Rocky told press at the event.


The babushka headscarf popped up as a trend a couple of years ago when it emerged on two London runways for designers Mary Katrantzou and Christopher Kane.

It's been relatively quiet on the babushka front ever since, though Queen Elizabeth famously wears her's out and about.
