Justin Bieber loves his fans -- but he didn't consult them before getting a drastic haircut on Monday.
Making a surprise appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, the 16-year-old singer explained his decision to chop his world-famous locks.
"I was inspired by yours!" Bieber joked to Ellen DeGeneres. He admitted to the comic that fans were freaking out -- via Twitter and other mediums -- about the hair change-up.
Retorted the Never Say Never star: "I was like, 'I don't really care.'"
Bieber then bestowed DeGeneres with a surprise birthday gift: A box containing some of his shorn-off hair. "Yes, it's really my hair," he assured her, explaining that he's giving "pieces" of his hair to different people -- who will hopefully auction off the pop music artifacts for different charities.
"I wanted to do something good," he said.
