Katharine McPhee became a bottle blonde for the cover shoot of her new album, Unbroken, set to hit stores on October 6. Katharine signed a record deal with Verve records in January.
She tells People magazine:
‘My music is a little more edgy so that inspired me to be adventurous, ‘ she explains of taking the leap to blonde with stylist Peter Savic. ‘I’ve never dyed my hair before so this was a pretty drastic change. I’ve always been known as a brunette but I’ve been thinking about it for a long time and it kind of just fit with all of the searching with the music and experimenting that I would do the same thing with my look.’ And she’s been noticing other effects of the new style as well. ‘The look has affected the way I dress, it’s inspired me to be more adventurous with what I decide to wear. It’s silly that something so simple as changing your hair could have such a big effect, ‘ she muses. ‘I’m just having fun with it. This is a great time for me to do something different. I’m young ‘â€ I always try to have a good time.’
It’s nice that she’s blonde, and all, but I wonder when we’ll get a soundbite from Katharine about the actual music on her album.
Do you like Kat’s new look? I’d have to see it in color to form an opinion.
