Justin Bieber's new haircut: Pop star gives Ellen DeGeneres his shorn locks

bieber-ellen-hair.jpgIn case you haven't heard, Justin Bieber cut his hair.

We know. You've heard. Not since Britney Spears' late night encounter with an electric razor has a haircut been so widely publicized. And yes, we know we're only making it worse by posting this story. We're sorry.

It's for a good cause, though. Bieb will appear on Wednesday's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in a surprise cameo that is no longer a surprise at all, since we're giving you the scoop now. Sorry... probably should've added a spoiler alert to this article.

Bieber tells DeGeneres that his haircut was actually inspired by hers. (Insert obligatory Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber mention here.) "I knew eventually it'd come around," DeGeneres says. "It's adorable. Were people like, "Hey, don't cut it!" Were people freaking out?"

Yes, Ellen. Yes, they were freaking out.

Bieber then gives DeGeneres a belated birthday present: a box of his own hair! Yes, that sounds creepy, but don't worry - she's not using them for a shrine or a hair doll or a voo-doo spell.

" Yes, it's really my hair," Bieber says when she opens the box. "But there's a perk. I wanted to do something good. I'm giving pieces of it to different people. We're doing something special. We want you to donate it to whatever charity you want."

DeGeneres will be auctioning the box of hair off to the creepy hair-collector with the most money via her website. The donation will go to her favorite charity, The Gentle Barn, an organization that rescues abused and neglected animals and then invites high-risk children to come visit, where they can be inspired by the animals and feel less alone.
