Charlie Puth is hitting the charts and gaining more and more fans by the day. His hit with Wiz Khalifa, “See You Again,” has taken off. Now that Puth is fully in the public eye, he wants his fans to stop asking about his eyes, more specifically, that seemingly shaved eyebrow.
According to Christianity Daily, Puth recently spoke about constantly being asked why he’s shaved part of the one eyebrow.

Puth shared he has never shaved his eyebrow, and that, in fact, it’s a scar.
Puth explained, “Everyone keeps asking about why my eyebrow is like this. I got bit by a dog when I was two years old.”
Puth even took to Twitter to explain the incident.

Puth further explained that “he nearly died from the childhood incident due to head trauma.” He also shared that because of the scar, his eyebrow will always look like that.
Puth has a sense of humor about all the questions and jokes, though, saying, “I’m not in a gang, this is not how many people I’ve killed.”
The 23-year-old singer-songwriter from New Jersey first found fame by posting videos on YouTube while he was still in high school. After high school, Puth graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2013. Since then, Puth has been working with quite a few stars.
Puth collaborated with the “All About That Bass” superstar Meghan Trainor on their hit “Marvin Gaye.” Puth has also had the opportunity to appear on The Ellen Degeneres Show along with many of the late night shows including Saturday Night Live. Puth and Wiz Khalifa even had the opportunity to perform their emotional hit “See You Again” at last Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
If that wasn’t enough, this week marks, according to Billboard, “Wiz Khalifa’s Furious 7 soundtrack smash, ‘See You Again,’ featuring Charlie Puth, rules the Billboard Hot 100 for a sixth week.”
Puth admits that it’s surreal to experience such success, but what’s most important to him is his fans, prompting him to send out the tweet, “I have the best fans thank you.”
