The "America's Got Talent" host was spotted outside "Good Morning America" on Monday, showing off his newly dyed cheetah print hair. His crazy 'do stood out against his white suit, white overcoat and rhinestone loafers.
Is it us, or does he look a little like Sisqo would have rocked back in the day?
The 33-year-old stirred up the controversy last week by posting photos of himself wearing white makeup as his alter ego, Connor Smallnut, to promote his new album, "White People Party Music."
"I knew it would spark some controversy," he said in an interview on "GMA." "But, I felt like it's a conversation that we needed because we all have differences we embrace. I talk about it in my standup all the time. It is not a new conversation, but a topic of sensationalism."
"Everybody's really sensitive when it comes to race and that's the reason I did it," Cannon added.
Even using the term "whiteface," he said, "I don't know what that is... This term that we created. I was doing a character impression. Blackface is about oppression."
Mariah Carey's hubby said he meant the whole thing to be "fun," adding."Yes, we have issues about race in this country and this world but it doesn't have to be with hatred."
