Katy Perry Chopped Off Her Hair For The Most Relatable Reason

It's very common.

Katy Perry’s recent buzzcut made fans compare her look to Justin Bieber. But as she revealed in an interview on Tuesday, the singer didn’t necessarily want to go that short ― she simply had to.

During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the “Chained To The Rhythm” songstress explained the inspiration behind her new ‘do.

“I did it about a month and change ago,” Perry said, before turning to speak to the studio audience. “I don’t know if you’ve ever dyed your hair blonde ― and too blonde ― sometimes your hair falls out when you go too blonde. So, that’s the way I handled it.”

The singer then said that her hair falling out (and subsequent haircut) was all a part of the universe’s plan. Plus, she said also gotten a few nice compliments on the cut.

“People are saying, ‘Now you can really see the beauty of your face,” Perry said, waving her hand toward Ellen’s face. “Now I can really see how beautiful you are.”

Sort of an awkward compliment, but nowhere near as awkward as Ellen forgetting the singer’s brief marriage to Russell Brand. Whoops!
