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.

If only he would use Preparation H and disappear.

Preparation H used as shaving cream might make him go away.

Justin Bieber will wake up some day and realize that his career is over and that he shot half of it. He had this wonderful, golden opportunity and he squandered half of it by acting up and misbehaving. The world that he has turned his back on will have moved on to new, fresh entertainers and he will be this worn, tattooed up used-to-be.

Where is the video of him shaving his legs?

He doesn’t make music and if he did it would suck and bomb. At this point he is just an internet celebrity.
