Justin Bieber Shaves His Tiny Mustache. We're Equal Parts Glad He Did and Alarmed by the Video

08/21/2014 at 11:35 AM ET

If you’re among the millions of Americans suffering from “Justin Bieber Tiny Mustache Gross-Out Syndrome,” you’re not alone. Many of us have been afflicted by it since he first debuted the wispy, patchy upper-lip look (seen below) last year. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: Bieber has reached for the razor and is clean shaven once more.

Of course, he didn’t do it alone — or in private. Bieber recorded the whole process for the world to see while pal Lil Za cheered him on. Clad in a Buffalo plaid sleeveless shirt and sporting his signature swoop of hair, Bieber brands his razor, leans into the camera to whisper “R.I.P. ‘Stache” (warning: may haunt your nightmares) and finally lathers up to remove his tiny strip of upper-lip hair. Here’s the Instagram for your viewing “pleasure.”

RELATED PHOTOS: Obsessed or hot mess?

“Ur boy got rid of his stash,” Bieber captioned his follow-up photo, displaying the baby face that propelled him to fame. Immediate fan reaction seemed to be relieved and enthusiastic. “THANK YOU SO MUCH JUSTIN THANK YOU THANK YOU,” wrote one Instagram commenter. “Omg omg omg, PERFECT BABY,” wrote another.

Someone needs to rock this little baby in their arms. Ugh!

wildmountainbelle on

I can’t believe I wasted those precious seconds of my life watching this. What have I come to?

Jim on

Next time, shave off your head.

Bee Happy on

Good job! hehe I’m glad he shaved it off. Looks better without it.

Mimi on

And OF COURSE he had to have attention to shave off his mousy mustache!! YUCK YUCK YUCK!!

taliamarie77 on

He needed to use an electric razor for that? He could’ve just plucked the little hairs with some tweezers bwahahahaha!!

Raffaele Zuccaro on

This jerk is the most WHIMPY looking PUSSY Punk on the planet– Where elsr does he shave???

J.M. on

Who cares! I can’t stand him and Kim Kardashian. So sick and tired of seeing him in the press. It was fine when he was singing, but for this other b.s. NO! Go away Justin.

Morgan on

Sometimes I think,”maybe this kid deserves the benefit of the doubt…maybe I shouldn’t blindly loathe his entire existence.” And then there’s moments like this when I feel he has surely owned his loathing. Narcissistic little punk. What disgusts me the most are how many people worship him..,I just threw up in my mouth thinking about them.

Jeeeeee on

He had to ask how to shave it????? Proof right there that he ain’t no man.

Inness on

If only he would use Preparation H and disappear.

Inness on

Preparation H used as shaving cream might make him go away.

Justin Bieber will wake up some day and realize that his career is over and that he shot half of it. He had this wonderful, golden opportunity and he squandered half of it by acting up and misbehaving. The world that he has turned his back on will have moved on to new, fresh entertainers and he will be this worn, tattooed up used-to-be.

And now he looks like a 15 year old girl again! LMAO

Bill on

Where is the video of him shaving his legs?

Sunny on

He doesn’t make music and if he did it would suck and bomb. At this point he is just an internet celebrity.

Tarawa on

Can someone just snipe this idiot?

melissajean0 on

Really People mag? We WANT to watch this? Re-prioritize your f**king news articles please.

Bee Happy on

Not caring for a particular Celeb is fine, everyone will NOT favor everyone. But when you hate on them calling them names and insulting them, that shows more about you then it does them.
You don’t know them and they don’t know you.

Wow his bathroom is HUGE !! he even bathes?? the way he puts his eyebrows, man, he is going to have huge forehead wrinkles by the age of 25

Janine Marie Max on

Why does he always have that dumbass look on his face? He’s ALWAYS squinting and has his forehead scrunched!

Smithy on

The only good thing about Justin Bieber, is the pleasure I take with his slow but sure demise. Tick tock tick tock before we he’s completely washed up.

enzo on

I thought he’s sorry ass went back to Canada

He looks way better without the stache……

Oh look…another article that essentially promotes the bullying and humiliation of a young man growing up in the eye of the media. And before anyone tries to reply that nobody cares about the status of his facial hair, this and a billion other mean articles wouldn’t have been written about it if no one cared. But you won’t write garbage about real disasters like Zac Efron or Selena Gomez or Cara Delevigne or tswift to name a few. Your double standards mean that you won’t write articles about how some 15yr old starlet stuffed her bra or has no hips (and I make this comparison because boys/men take a lot longer to finish developing and he was a late bloomer already-which still does not warrant derision). It’s also unlikely that this comment will even be approved by the “moderator”. I just want to point out why he still has fans: because we know he’s been smeared by the media through lies and exaggeration, the media has taken the lead in what is a bullying campaign, and we have seen his “bad behavior” unfold in real time and have noted the discrepancies in what the media puts forth. The fact that even opinion columns (not to mention what we call journalism in this day) such as this are incapable of stating a fact, and finishing it out with a more innocuous comment like “it’s a rather wispy thing, but we think he’ll look better without it until he can grow it in better like most men do at later ages”, is shameful and a testament to the abhorrent soul of our society.

Yolie Scott on

I wonder what happened to my pet caterpillar.

jenny on

Way better without a tache!

Adv on

Why why why does he always have such a stupid look on his face?

Jane on

I don’t know what’s worse: the fact that this twit is still around, or the fact that we’re so stupid to keep following him. That’s the real issue, isn’t it? We all want to slap some sense into the little idiot, but by giving him the publicity, we’re keeping him in the very spotlight we want to kick him out of.

hermanoblanco on

Just as I suspected: a deluge of “who cares/you suck” comments. Like mosquitos to a sweaty arm. Good job, children… P.S.: I really must find more to do with my time than click on an article I’m not into, read a few of the comments, and respond.

Kartrashians on

I got more hair between my checks than whats on his upper lip.

Thea on

Now maybe he can pay some attention to his brows….


I’m not a hater or anything, but you realise that despite his christian beliefs, he dons tattoos of everything the bible says NOT too have, such as flowers & stars. Even an owl, which is suppose to represent evil. Then again, tattoo restrictions WERE from the old convenant, and we’re living in the new convenant, so i suppose it’s acceptable now. I still wouldn’t do it though. I wouldn’t mark my body, even though alot of christians believe that when God said not to mark your body, he was talking about YOU self mutilating yourself in hopes that it would result in suicide. I’m a christian, and i don’t believe tattoos are wrong, so long as you’re glorifying GOD in someway. We get new bodies when the world ends anyway!

National Show Tickets on

If he was here in Las Vegas and did that then we could had sold tickets and filled a showroom of girls (and guys) wanting to watch this major event. We could had done a show with it with dancing girls, cirque acts and really done it right

meganbrodkorb on
