'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Bieber's haircut - good move or bad?

That screaming you hear? That's the sound of girls around the world who are in collective shock today as photos surface of Justin Bieber’s new shorter hair!

You know Justin Bieber is idolized for his sweet voice, boyish good looks and that infamous ‘do. So now that he’s gone and changed it up, will this actually hurt his popularity? Or even damage his career?

I think it’s a big deal for sure – but maybe his fans would embrace this new look in the same way they anticipate one of Bieber’s new singles. What do you think? Post your thoughts below. We’re debating this today on the show.

Other big stories we’re fired up about on the show…

A shocking scare on NBC’s “Today” show this morning, and did Katy Perry slam Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me” video?!

Be sure to watch me and Brooke Anderson today on "Showbiz Tonight" at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET on HLN. See you then!

Watch Showbiz Tonight Weekdays Exclusively at 11PM ET on HLN.

    If you owned grazing land,you could pprsooe the idea of letting other herders graze on your land for a small fee. If they don't have the money ,then pprsooe the idea of protecting their herds on your land for now and in the spring they give you half of all the newborns in their herds.

    No movies this year. Priority #1 is to get in a bubble bath with Justin and my Donkey.

    whatever the reason behind his having a haircut is none of anybodys business, its a normal thing everyone is doing once in a while.. its just a hair for god sake, even if he goes bald if hes really talented nothing will ever change that!

    Really...this is what it's come down to? We have troops in Afghanistan and Iraq risking there lives and all you can do is report about a damn haircut? How about trying a high and tight!!

    I don't think it looks more 'mature' because it's a very common hairstyle for young adults

    @Superhiro: let's face it. This kid has a serious promotion handler.

    I do like the haircut. I'm sure the Bieber fan will pony up the cash for the hair. I like that the snippets will be sold off for charity. My kids love him.
    Reminds me a lot the swirl around David Cassity, Donnie Osmond and the J-5 in the 70's.

    No matter what his hair looks like Justin will always be a role model to teens everywhere! Justin is going to be 17 in a week! He is not to young to be in the music industry or appearing in an episode of CSI ! Justin is still hott! He has a great voice girls are crazy in love with him! There is no way that his hairdo is going to mess up his career!

    I really like Justins new cut but I loved his other better. I have a 5 year old daughter and she loves him so much and my 9 year old does too. They think that it will hurt him since all the younger girls love him not only for his music but his hair.

    Folks, lighten up please.
    He is young, talented and having a good time, and he'll probably mature into a fine singer. If not, let him enjoy the "ride."
    After all...he is only a kid, and a nice one. Not a bad role model for your children to follow.
    His haircut looks great, he's still a "cutie."
    And please......re: all the gloom and doom in the world, we are all aware of what's happening out there and at home. Some entertainment to take off the edge keeps us sane and balances out our lives.

  20. Too much attn

    When I see a picture like this my first thought is "he's just a child" and he's being used and sold by the music industry to make a buck. He's too young to be in the business right now. They will use him and burn him out and he'll be another child-star than ends up on drugs when his popularity fades (e.g. Britney, LIndsay, etc....). So sad 🙁

    Justin is a talented individual. Whether he has his hair cut or not. My daughter's love him and so do I. He is so sweet and just a wonderful person. I can't believe that everyone is going nuts over his hair..Everyone complained when it was longer, and now everyone is still complaining. He can't get a break. The one thing that stays the same is he is talented with or without hair!! Everyone grows up and moves on. He can't hair the same hair at 16 as he does when he's 20. I had a Dorothy Hamill haircut at 10...not at 20!! Give him a break! Justin...YOU ROCK AND WE LOVE YOU!!
