Justin Bieber Shaves His Tiny Mustache. We're Equal Parts Glad He Did and Alarmed by the Video

08/21/2014 at 11:35 AM ET

If you’re among the millions of Americans suffering from “Justin Bieber Tiny Mustache Gross-Out Syndrome,” you’re not alone. Many of us have been afflicted by it since he first debuted the wispy, patchy upper-lip look (seen below) last year. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: Bieber has reached for the razor and is clean shaven once more.

Of course, he didn’t do it alone — or in private. Bieber recorded the whole process for the world to see while pal Lil Za cheered him on. Clad in a Buffalo plaid sleeveless shirt and sporting his signature swoop of hair, Bieber brands his razor, leans into the camera to whisper “R.I.P. ‘Stache” (warning: may haunt your nightmares) and finally lathers up to remove his tiny strip of upper-lip hair. Here’s the Instagram for your viewing “pleasure.”

“Ur boy got rid of his stash,” Bieber captioned his follow-up photo, displaying the baby face that propelled him to fame. Immediate fan reaction seemed to be relieved and enthusiastic. “THANK YOU SO MUCH JUSTIN THANK YOU THANK YOU,” wrote one Instagram commenter. “Omg omg omg, PERFECT BABY,” wrote another.

Who cares! I can’t stand him and Kim Kardashian. So sick and tired of seeing him in the press. It was fine when he was singing, but for this other b.s. NO! Go away Justin.

Sometimes I think,”maybe this kid deserves the benefit of the doubt…maybe I shouldn’t blindly loathe his entire existence.” And then there’s moments like this when I feel he has surely owned his loathing. Narcissistic little punk. What disgusts me the most are how many people worship him..,I just threw up in my mouth thinking about them.
