Justin Bieber appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday, and the two united on a skit dubbed “Jimmy Cuts Justin’s Hair,” in which Bieber pretended he’d had his head shaved by the late night host (relax, it was only a bald cap).
“I like it,” Kimmel. “You look like a young Lex Luthor!”
“I kind of like it, too,” Bieber, 16, said, adding that without his trademark bangs to fawn over, his fans can “just focus on [his] beautiful, silky smooth vocals.”
“This is a great look for you,” Kimmel said. “I’m very proud of myself, I never shaved someone’s head before… you know what I am: I’m Bieber’s barber!”
Asked how his young female fan base would accept the new ‘do — or lack thereof — Bieber said, “The girls will be upset, but they’ll get over it,” prompting Kimmel to joke all of Bieber’s young fans should shave their heads in solidarity with the Canadian crooner.
