Money does not buy everything, as we have come to learn, including good style.
Not even those among us with a current net worth of $266 billion are guaranteed to make genius aesthetic choices.
Yep, our boy Elon Musk’s new hairstyle is a case in point.
Since becoming the world’s richest human and the ensuing controversy around how much tax he pays tax, things have come too easy for Musk.
But his latest antics have resulted in some intense Twitter meme fodder, most notably surrounding his strange hairdo choices with “Big Mid-Life Crisis Energy”:

Futurism reported that while on his way to attend the Art Basel Miami Fair with his son on Thursday, the “homeless billionaire” was spotted with a hairdo described as everything from “terminally divorced” to “Zorg from The Fifth Element“.
The poor rich guy’s hairline has been visibly receding since as far back as 1999. Seems like such a waste to have hair transplants and then treat your barnet like this.
We know Elon loves a meme, but even when it’s about him?

The haircut has thoroughly confused his age, with some saying he’s the “only man who can get a zoomer haircut and somehow look older“, while another says he “looks like every 14-year old I see getting dropped off at the mall.”
Perhaps it’s a toupée put on backwards, as comics Desus & Mero reckon, This via Yahoo:
Desus, added, “He spent all his Dogecoin on one toupee. He got too much money—he can get better hair than that!”
The rowdy comics then showed their audience an image of the back of Musk’s head, which somehow proved even less flattering than the front.
“Come on, dog! He put the shit on backwards, B!” offered Mero, adding, “Fam! He used the Elmer’s Glue Stick for that, dog. He’s like, plop… Fam, you’re already, like… you’re already a supervillain. Embrace the balding, my G.”
Besides debating whether or not the 50-year-old billionaire got hair transplant surgery or not, they also diss his ex-girlfriend Grimes, and give a backhanded comment about what the aliens might think of him.
You can check that all out from the 4:30 mark:
If that’s not enough shade, Musk was also totally schooled by a Harvard professor after tweeting about the Tesla Roadster he launched into orbit in early 2018 still orbiting Mars.
Futurism has more:
Harvard’s Jonathan McDowell, who works at the university’s Center for Astrophysics, wasn’t going to let the comment slide. He corrected Musk on what the car is actually orbiting, still attached to the Falcon Heavy rocket that launched it into space, and presumably still occupied by Starman, its spacesuit-wearing mannequin driver.
“Well, no,” McDowell tweeted in response. “It’s orbiting the Sun, and occasionally passes the orbit of Mars. Not the same thing.”
Consider yourself sufficiently roasted from all angles, Elon Musk.
