OFFSTAGE: Rascal Flatts Remix Justin Bieber and His Hair

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

I saw the Justin Bieber movie Never Say Never over the weekend. And I think I speak for most girls when I say, “Oh! My! God!” He is seriously talented and completely adorable. Especially that signature shaggy side-swept hair of his. But then when he was hanging out with Rascal Flatts on Monday (Feb. 21), he posted a picture of himself on Twitter with a new haircut. What gives? He reportedly told TMZ, “I just got sick of it. It was like in my eyes, and I just wanted it kind of out of my face. So, I just kinda wanted to change up.” And then in a move that could only be pulled off by a 16-year-old with 7.5 million Twitter followers, he said, “yeah so it’s true … i got a lil haircut … i like it … and we are giving all the hair cut to CHARITY to auction. Details coming soon.” I have absolutely no doubt that those hair trimmings will bring in thousands of dollars. What I’m more excited about, though, is seeing how Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney back Bieber in his video for what he calls an “epic” remix of his pop hit, “That Should Be Me.”
