Kellie Pickler Rocks Her Shaved Head on the CMAs Red Carpet

What’s the buzz, Kellie?

The country starlet showed off her super-short ‘do on the CMAs red carpet in Nashville Thursday night, glamming up her look with an ice-blue Pamella Roland gown and Tacori diamond earrings.

“My sister is with child. Everybody wants to rub her belly,” Pickler told CMT when she arrived at the show. “And everybody wants to rub my head!”

Pickler shaved her head in early September to show support for a friend, Summer Holt Miller, who’d just been diagnosed with breast cancer.

“If this compels even one person to change their mentality toward waiting until the age of 40 for their mammogram, then it will be worth it,” she said at the time.

A recent update on Miller’s Caring Bridge website says she’s been dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy lately, but has also been “busy living and it feels great!” Pickler recently helped organize a breast cancer fundraiser in Nashville for her pal, and painted a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon with Summer’s name on it onto the side of her tour bus.

Thursday night, however, Pickler had lighter topics on her mind. When asked how she felt about people wanting to rub her hair, she replied, “I hope it brings somebody good luck.”

She looks GORGEOUS and I cannot say enough about what she did for her friend.

Absolutely beautiful… the woman, the gesture, all of it.

This is one of the nicest things I have seen someone do for one of their friends. I have a load of respect for this woman.

She seems to be one of the most genuine people in the entertainment industry and in general. I’ve seen her during interviews and she has such a kind, warm spirit. I only hope for her continued success.

Sama on

She actually looks pretty good…but it does seem to age her a lil bit.

She did a beautiful thing for her friend and I greatly appreciate that she didn’t care what others thought. It must have been a great moral booster for the friend,. KUDOS!

Angie on

I would do this in a heartbeat for my BFF, no hesitation. She is an awesome chick and I think she is gorgeous with or without hair. She seems genuine and this was an absolutely beautiful gesture on her part.

Talie on

Not a fan of country music, but am a total fan of hers. She is truly beautiful inside and out. She’s an inspiration.

Letty on

She is one cool chick!

patty on

Love Kelly!!!

hey on

I liked her with her natural hair color.

Nick on

Pretty Kellie is a truly good friend.

B J. Strawn on

As her breast cancer spread my best friend was given 1 to 2 years to live and every evening after work I sat by her side at the City of Hope to talk, pray or just watch her sleep. That was 17 years ago!! YEAH! I have always liked Kellie but after hearing about her support of her friend, I now say I love Kellie Pickler. However as much as I am a huge Ellen fan, I did think it was mean when Ellen shaved her initials on Kellie’s head. I bet if Ellen had not done that, Kellie’s hair would have been longer for the CMA.

Melanie on

Beautiful woman with a beautiful spirit, I do think that short hair is more flattering for her face as opposed to her mid-length do

Just My Opinion on

Beautiful women!

kate71 on

She is beautiful inside AND out! A great role model on friendship!

Love Kellie Pickler! She is one beautiful and genuine person to do that for her friend.

She is beautiful inside and out. I love Kellie!!!!

Terry on

I saw Kelly a couple weeks ago at a free concert at the Washington Parish Fair in Franklinton LA. Great performance by a real classy lady. Great renditions of old Tammy Wynett and Loretta Lynn songs. I really enjoyed songs from her albums that dont make the radio.

TJE on

“Shaved head” gets more clicks, doesn’t it? Who cares if it’s an outright lie? At least people are clicking on the story.

eaglesnoles05 on

I’m not sure if “shaved” means what the author thinks it means.

Bokermania on

I wonder what else is shaved? I’d give anything to rub her head.

Charlie on

Kellie is a beautiful lady. Always a class act. I mean who would do this for a friend? Kellie would. I buy every CD she puts out.

lourosell on

I loved Kelly long before she did this…there is just this endearing quality about her.

bmabe on

Wonder if her kitty is shaved too and can i rub it?

Cris on

Still gorgeous!

markus on

Kellie is absolutely gorgeous. HOLLYWOOD loves Kellie Pickler

Bonnie on

What a sweetheart….such a beauty inside and out.

nema on

Never followed country music I actually listen to norwegian black metal but I am so impressed by the actions of Ms. Pickler. It is rare to find a young woman who is also a celebrity look beyond the veil of vanity. She is a woman who is truly human & humane. I will be having my 1st baby a girl and hope she will have similar qualities to Kellie.

Liam on

Should people plan to receive links then they should at the very least show the common sense to post a themed and thorough response. All comment spam does is hurt your backlinking attempts and generates worthless links. The only way to behave is to befriend fellow bloggers who have blogs of a similar topic and generate genuine targeted traffic by posting a genuine response. Hopefully more people might think about this before replying after me, Thanks.
