He also recently shared a photo on Instagram of her growing white hair, captioned: “I mean, what the hell is this?” Does my hair grow back white? If so, I wonder if I will look more like George Clooney or Doc Brown? I feel like it’s still cancerous peach fluffy hair and maybe my normal hair will start to grow again? ”
Here’s to get Doc Brown (or George Clooney) back to play Blink-182 soon.
