Jennifer Lopez Debuts Short Hair, Gets Confetti-Bombed By Scary Clown: Watch the VIdeo!

Jennifer Lopez’s short new hairstyle got a surprise celebration at LAX on Tuesday, May 26. The American Idol judge, who usually rocks her signature long locks, debuted a chic summer bob at the airport before she was confetti-bombed by prankster clown Richie the Barber.

The Boy Next Door star, who bared her midriff in a cropped sweater and blue jeans, thankfully had her eyes protected with sunglasses but got a fair amount of rainbow-colored confetti rained over her head.

Richie the Barber was also responsible for confetti-bombing Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian back in April 2014 in West Hollywood, Calif., sending the reality stars into a standing fetal position to protect themselves from the flying bits of colored paper as they made their way out of a store.

Following the incident, the two sisters filed a battery report. Richie told TMZ he was simply trying to “congratulate them on their success.”
