The Justin Bieber media blitz hit “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night, as the teen idol stopped by for a makeover while promoting the release of his biopic “Never Say Never.”
Shortly after Bieber and his pal Sean “Diddy” Combs gave the late night audience some not-so-subtle encouragement to check out the movie, Kimmel suggested the singer allow him to play “Bieber barber” and take a little off the top of the famous mop-top.
A couple of mock snips caused teens in the audience to cringe with fear, but they applauded as the singer returned from a commercial break with a perfectly smooth and completely fake chrome dome.
“You know what? People won’t focus on your hair so much,” Kimmel deadpanned.
Bieber played along, adding, “They’ll just focus on my silky smooth vocals.”
