Justin Bieber shaves off moustache, much to fans' delight

WATCH: ‘The Morning Show’ hosts discuss the Justin Bieber changing up his look.

With the release of his fifth and latest album Changes, it seems Justin Bieber is making some changes of his own.

On Sunday, the Canadian pop icon revealed that he shaved off his widely disliked moustache after being mocked and insulted about it relentlessly over the course of the last month.

“I shaved,” he wrote in an Instagram post, which showed “Baby face Bieb” — a facial, hairless portrait of the 25-year-old.

“Mustachio went on holiday, but he will be back in due time,” he added, suggested the ‘stache might make a return in the near future.

In response, Hailey Bieber, the pop star’s wife, wrote “Yeeeeee” in the comment section of his photo, adding a heart eyes emoji, showing her approval.

Even Bieber’s own mother Pattie Mallette had something to say about her son’s recent grooming decision.

“Ya, praise God,” she said.

Along with his family, an army of Beliebers — tens of thousands strong — shared their excitement about the Sorry singer’s lack of moustache.

“Thank goodness,” wrote one fan.

“Yessss, finally,” said another. “I was just saying how he needs to,” the person added.

Bieber’s facial hair criticism initially began when he posted a photo showing off his grills in late January.

“This is not yummy,” one Instagram user wrote.

“Literally do you think the mustach is cute,” another person commented on the photo.
Other comments included: “Why he look like he hangs out at the gas station” and “Shave your mustash .”
