Justin Bieber's Haircut Was 'Calculated Move'
Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber says he needed a "change," so he decided to get a haircut.
But insiders are buzzing that there was likely another reason behind his decision to sport a shorter wispier 'do.
On the set of his new music video with Rascal Flatts, Bieber got the cut and Tweeted “yeah so it’s true…i got a lil haircut…i like it…and we are giving all the hair cut to CHARITY to auction. Details coming soon.”
Soon after, the news spread like wild fire over the Web.
Before long, Bieber web sites were inundated with comments - and fans couldn't stop Tweeting.
“It’s a calculated move” to cut his hair, Randy Sosin, a former executive at MTV and Interscope Records, tells WSJ. “His hair is not that different, he’s not changing it that much, but he’s making it more of an event. Everything he does is something.”
Interestingly, the same time Bieber announced his new haircut, Paramount confirmed that it was re-releasing a special director's cut of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, featuring 40 minutes of extra footage.
Director Jon M. Chu played coy with the New York Times when asked if he had any footage at all of Bieber getting his locks trimmed: “I can’t confirm or deny those reports. Cameras are everywhere.” The re-release could significantly add to the $51.3 million in tickets that the film had sold in the United States by Monday.
