Stop the presses -- Justin Bieber shaved off his unsightly dreadlocks and debuted a photo of his new buzz cut on Friday night. Progress!
After experimenting with platinum, purple and various lengths over the last few months, we're not surprised that Bieber wanted to start fresh. We just wonder what he'll do next! Guess we'll have to wait a few weeks to see...
Last week Biebs posted a video to address the folks who were hating on his dreads, and mimicked some of the comments he's gotten over the last month. "'Dude, are you gonna do anything with your hair or are you just gonna leave it like that, dude?'" Bieber said, adding, "Being weird is fun ... if you are not weird I don't like you."
If we could submit a request, we'd just like for the 22-year-old pop superstar to go back to his natural roots -- and texture. Nothing beats that!

Princess Charlotte will celebrate her first birthday on Monday, and while a royal photographer will be on hand to capture the festivities, Prince William and Duchess Kate have released a few new pictures of their adorable daughter. The best part? These images were all taken by The Duchess herself, at the royal couple's Anmer home in Norfolk, England.
"The Duke and Duchess are very happy to be able to share these important family moments and hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as they do," the palace said in a statement.
Princess Charlotte wears all kinds of adorable outfits, and in one shot the family dog, Lupo, can be seen trotting around in the background. We love this -- and we love that Kate and Wills are so keen on sharing some of their family snapshots with the world!

Things are looking up for Madonna, who was recently reunited with her 15-year-old son, Rocco. The Queen of Pop posted the above photo on Instagram on Friday and wrote, “We Need!” along with a purple heart emoji.
Madonna has been feuding with ex-husband Guy Ritchie over custody of their son, though it seems a meeting the former spouses had last month in London might have been a step in the right direction. “The meeting went well and it’s a great sign of things to come,” a Madonna insider told Us Weekly. “She’s in such a good mood.”
Rocco currently lives in England with his dad, despite a court ruling stating he is to live with his mother in NYC. In December 2015 Rocco left Madonna's Rebel Heart world tour and decided he wanted to be with his dad, and the couple have been at odds ever since.
While the meeting went well, Madonna and Ritchie, who divorced in 2008, have yet to come to an official agreement. If they can't, they will have to settle the custody battle in a NYC court in June.

Kim Kardashian hopped on a private jet in Los Angeles on Saturday, and she was photographed carrying her son Saint while the nanny brought Nori aboard. The 35-year-old reality TV star is headed to New York City for the Met Gala, which will take place on Monday.
But will Nori be joining her on the red carpet? We can't remember the last time a kid attended the event, but we wouldn't be surprised if this was something Kim and hubby Kanye West tried to pull!
As usual, Kim found a way to turn something like walking onto a plane a way for her to earn a few bucks, as she plugged JetSmarter with the video below on her Instagram page. "If you're a mom, you know how crazy it is to travel with two kids," Kim says in the video below. "That's why I'm so grateful for Jetsmarter -- there's this app that you can go on, find a private plane for your and your family, that just makes everything so easy."
We're sure most moms can relate to Kim's need for private jets, LOL...

President Obama stole the show at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday night, and while we would say this is his final one, we have a feeling he'll be back in the years to come...
Kendall Jenner, Rosario Dawson, Miles Teller and Gabrielle Union were among the celebrities in attendance, and comedian Larry Wilmore hosted the event. Wilmore joked, "President Obama's hair is so white, it's started saying 'All Lives Matter' ... All I’m saying is that in less than eight years, Mr. President, you've busted two time-honored stereotypes: Black does crack and, apparently, once you go black, it looks like we are going back. Thanks, Ben Carson." Ha!
At the beginning of the event, guests were shown a blooper reel, which included footage of the president including knocking over audio equipment, calling Today show host Matt Lauer "Tim" and calling Kanye West a "jackass." Obama quipped, "I was running on C.P.T. Which stands for jokes that white people should not make." He is of course referring to the recent exchange between Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who attributed his delayed endorsement of Clinton to "C.P. Time" or "Colored People's Time."
Obama then took aim at the presidential candidates -- specifically, Donald Trump. "It is surprising — you have a room full of reporters, celebrities, cameras. And he says, 'No.' Is this dinner too tacky for The Donald? What could he be possibly doing instead? Is he at home, eating a Trump Steak? Tweeting out insults to Angela Merkel? What's he doing?" He makes a good point...

Somewhere, Gloria Steinem is cringing!
Kylie Jenner covers the latest issue of Glamour, and while she looks gorgeous, we can't even with her quotes about being a feminist in the accompanying interview.
"I mean, of course I do, but I don't think I stand up in public that way a lot. Not that I don't feel things in my personal life, but yes: I do consider myself a feminist. I'm a young woman, for one thing, and I don't depend on a man or anybody else. I make my own money and start my own businesses, and I feel like I'm an inspiration for a lot of young girls who want to stand on their own," she dished to the mag.
The only reason she's "making it on her own" is because of her savvy momager Kris Jenner and her sister Kim's sex tape, which skyrocketed the whole family into fame and thus led to lucrative endorsement deals and businesses.
The barely legal plastic surgery princess also wants us to know she's a big girl and supports herself financially. "I haven't had a dollar of my mum's money for five years. Ever since I started earning my own money, I've paid for everything: all my cars, houses, clothes, everything. I like to know exactly what's going on and I'm actually quite careful with what I spend. We all are as a family," she revealed.

A new police report has been released detailing the calls made from Prince's Paisley Park. The report states that 47 calls were made to the police from the residence (which seems like A LOT) in the past five years and that three calls were made in the past nine months for unspecified medical emergencies. The last call was made at the time of Prince's death.
The report also details how emergency services battled to save the superstar after he was found unresponsive in an elevator in his Minnesota manor last Thursday. The 57-year-old was pronounced dead less than 20 minutes after an ambulance arrived at his home at 9: 48 AM.
Jason Kamerud, chief deputy of Carver County Sheriff’s Office, wrote in the report, "On 4/21/2016 at about 0943 hours, sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a medical call at Paisley Park. Sheriff's deputies and emergency personnel from Chanhassen Fire and Ridgeview Ambulance arrived at about 0948 hours and found an unresponsive adult male in the elevator."
The report continued, "They tried to provide lifesaving CPR, but were unable to revive the victim. He was pronounced deceased at 1007 hours."
The information comes on the heels of reports that the authorities are looking into whether or not the Purple One died of an overdose, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press on Thursday, April 28. The official also explained that since Prince was found with prescription pills at the time of his death, official would be investigating what drugs he had and whether or not a doctor had prescribed the medications before his death on April 21.

Wow -- Kelly Ripa's claws are out.
On Friday's episode of Live With Kelly and Michael, Kelly Ripa made some passive aggressive digs at her co-host Michael Strahan when she brought up his divorce on national TV. Low blow, skinny lady!
In an early segment of the show, Ripa brought up the "Bird's Nesting" topic about divorced couples who instead of moving their kids between one parent's house to the other, keep the kids and keep their kids in the same housewith Strahan and said, "There’s a great article in the paper and I want to get your take on it because I don’t have a take on it. But I want yours. So you’ve gotten divorced..."
Strahan, who has been divorced twice, looked stunned at the barb -- giving a shocked look to the camera. We were pretty shocked to -- that's a pretty bitchy move if you ask us!
Ripa, who just celebrated her 20th wedding anniversary with husband Mark Consuelos, seemed unfazed by Strahan's obvious irritation and just kept talking and talking. The whole thing was just uncalled for and uncomfortable.
The latest insult comes a day after a segment in which a squealing armadillo shot something into Ripa's mouth and the petite co-host's yelled, "I should bring him into contract negotiations!" Yiiiiikes!
Ripa should really learn to take the high road -- because she's coming off as catty and it's doing nothing for her.
We have a feeling now Strahan's probably pretty happy that he's got two weeks left dealing with her. Earlier this week, ABC announced that due to recent events, the former NFL star would be leaving the show sooner than expected and that his final show would be May 13. We bet May 13 can't come soon enough for the future full-time Good Morning America host!
