During an important international mission to sign copies of his new autobiography, First Step 2 Forever, Justin Bieber — the Canadian cultural attache to America — unveiled his new haircut, the repercussions of which have sent shockwaves throughout the nation. It represents an undeniable shift in form and in strategy — imported Canadian pop-singers who found fame on YouTube will never be seen the same again. President Obama has raised the security level in all hair salons across the NYC metropolitan area, and radio morning show hosts across the United States don’t know what to do with their lame lesbian hair jokes anymore. Trichologists are being summoned on all the cable news networks to offer their opinion on Bieber’s new hairstyle, and so far, opinion is mixed.
