Justin Bieber was taken aback by all the buzz over the debut of his new ‘do.
"Yeah [people were freaking out], but I was like, 'I don't really care,’” he said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday.
With the cut, Bieber said, “There's a perk. I wanted to do something good. I'm giving pieces of it to different people. The thing is, we're doing something special. We want you to donate it to whatever charity you want."
He gave DeGeneres some of his hair, which she plans to auction off as well for her favorite charity, The Gentle Barn, which rescues abused and neglected animals.
Meanwhile, Bieber's pal Kim Kardashian approves on the look. She tells ET, "I have seen his new haircut, it's really cute."
Bieber is currently promoting his 3-D movie, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which is being re-released on Friday with additional footage.
