*Kim Kardashian has a new look. Ala Bo Derek, we guess she’s getting in touch with her sista side because she’s now sportin’ braids. And please hold the hate bombs; the crack was only a joke.

Kardashian was conveniently caught by the paps entering a gym an LA gym on Thursday with the new ‘do. Speculation is that it has something to do with a new song/video she recorded with Kanye West.

“Day #3 Night shoot! I’m fighting hair and make up,” she tweeted on Thursday, “this look is a little cray cray, but I’m going for it!”

Apparently she got the braids put in on Wednesday.

“Ok just took a quick nap and woke up with a whole new look!” she tweeted that day. “Love the glam squad!”

Kardashian is reportedly working on her first studio album with producer The-Dream.

“What an amazing day!!! I’m finished for today…but we have a few more to go!’ she tweeted on Wednesday, possibly referring to tracks on her new album. “Feels so good to overcome a fear!”
