Was Justin Bieber weeping on the streets of New York because of his hair?

Hailey Baldwin takes Justin Bieber to get a trim at Cutler Salon in SoHo

A few days ago, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber were photographed in New York. That’s no surprise – they’ve been in New York for weeks, seemingly on an endless vacation, not doing anything other than going out to eat and doing some shopping and riding Citi Bikes. And weeping. They were both openly weeping on the streets of New York this week, him more than her:

I’m not going to judge or shade Justin for crying. Man-tears should be embraced, and we need to teach boys and men that it’s okay to cry, it’s okay to show emotion, it’s okay to be upset and let it out with tears instead of with violence or depression or self-medication. But I did wonder why Justin was so “in his feelings.” The answer? Maybe he was just really upset about his hair?

Justin and Hailey were spotted at Cutler Salon yesterday – Hailey didn’t get anything done. She was just there to support Justin, as he got a significant trim and got everything sort of cleaned up. By the looks of things, he easily got three inches taken off the back. Do you think this is why he was crying? He was just tired and exhausted of looking like a mangy dirtbag and Hailey soothed him and told him, “it’s okay, my love, you can always just get a haircut and shave?”

    I just find it a little weird that you’re going to have an emotional scene out in public-maybe you’d head back to the hotel or your apartment for some quiet time?

    • Kashmir says:

      A CDAN blind suggested hailey told Justin she miscarried..it suggests he was pressuring her to get checked an she ‘broke down’ and said she miscarried..nobody knows if she was pregnant to begin with

      • Swack says:

        Believe the other day thete was an article – don’t remember where- that said they were being celibate until the wedding.

    • Wifabif says:

      Have you ever had an overwhelming emotional moment? Sometimes you can’t just put it away for better scenery or different location. And nobody should have to. We all have emotions, and it’s ok to feel them, wherever they arise.

      • SK says:

        Agree. I know he’s not very popular here and I wouldn’t say I am too impressed either BUT he has struck me as someone who is dedicated to music and although I’m sure he wanted all this success, nothing can prepare you for the downsides of global fame – always being watched, potentially unsafe and feeling isolated. I think it must be hard to cope with

      • MaryContrary says:

        Unless you’ve gotten news that someone close has passed away, no, I can’t imagine not being to hold it together until you’re not in a more private spot.

  3. Crumbs says:

    They seem to be doing a lot for attention.

  4. fv says:

    didn’t he also cried in public after he proposed? i thought this was some weird pap stroll but is he having a breakdown?

  5. Mia4s says:

    Men/boys crying is normal and healthy and should never be criticized…and if he wasn’t crying over that hair he should have been. Yikes.

    Yeah this seems like a bit of a show to be honest. (Attention seeking? Bieber and bride? Gasp, I’m shocked said no one ever).

  6. Kitten says:

    It’s probably the drugs, honestly. Opiates can make you moody and more prone to emotional outbursts.

  7. Michelle says:

    What is with his forehead? It’s all I ever see, all scrunched up all the time. Can you imagine how strong his eyebrows must be by now?

    • lobstah says:


      thank you for making me laugh on this fine thursday morning. i loved your comment.

    • Lexilla says:

      It’s the squinty confused look a lot of young male stars mistake for hotness. See also: Jaden Smith

  8. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    He’d be better served by crying over that atrocious color than a trim of a few inches.

  9. HeyThere! says:

    I have no issues with him crying. He’s human and has tear ducts, we cry. I also think the only place he could have a private moment is in his home. I cry in public. LOL it’s normally happy tears. Happy tears are something I didn’t do until I had babies. I just remember when I prayer for the moments I have now with my husband and babies. It’s so great. I’m not saying he had happy tears, that’s just 99% of the reason why I’m emotional in public.

    On to the next, I do not understand his recent style. He is capable of being handsome but he’s going for sloppy. It’s not my thing. Maybe Hailey likes it?? I doubt he was crying over his hair though? I actually think the way they were comforting each other was very sweet. They clearly care about each other. The salon should have accidentally shaved it. Ha!

    • Thatsallfolks says:

      +1 about how they were comforting each other – very sweet, yes. Their heads were together and it seemed almost innocent actually. 2 kids trying to deal and make sense of the world.

    • Beth says:

      I’m also an emotional person, and I have no problem with men crying. If I’m happy, sad,angry, I cry and not usually in private.

      Justins recent style makes him look like he rolled out of bed, and left without showering or changing into clean clothes. I can’t tell if they’re in love or if it’s an act for the paparazzi

  10. Sarah says:

    Oh, I would be crying as well if my hair looked like that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  11. Michael says:

    She is just so……..blah

    • Thatsallfolks says:

      I used to feel that way about her, but she has grown on me significantly. She seems a lot more grounded and stable than he is.

  12. Beth says:

    Is he wearing real shoes instead of slippers? Maybe he’s crying because his feet hurt

  13. me says:

    These two spend way too much time together. Don’t they just wanna be apart sometimes too?

  14. Jordan says:

    I swear this kid reminds me of the pop version of Joe Dirt.

  15. BlueNailsBetty says:

    Maybe he saw his reflection and realized he has permanent douche face.

  16. jkl says:

    You add together the acne, dead eyes, crying, and apparent mood swings – what do you get?

  17. Anonymous says:

    I reads somewhere that he had an anxiety attack. Who knows. Can you imagine just trying to live your life and hang with your significant other and being chased by crowds of people and paparazzi? I think I’d break down every once in a while, too.

  18. Swack says:

    Needs to wash his upper lip.

  19. holly hobby says:

    He needs to shave that peach fuzz off his upper lip. Sorry it is not appealing.

  20. Mrs. Peel says:

    He’s sobbing because he knows he hit his full physical perfection while still a teenager. The rich hobo look ages him severely.

  21. Christina says:

    I sometimes wonder what it is like to not really have many prospects and then get catapulted to stardom. In LA, you meet a ton of emotionally stunted people. Hell, I’m probably one! When you are a kid growing up with adults who don’t know that life or how to protect you in it, it has to be rough. Baldwin’s family has been in show business a long time, so I can see how she helps him in that way. She understands how to survive in that world in a way that he hasn’t really known before getting really close to someone like her.

    He will be trashed for this everywhere by most people. Kaiser, you said you approved and trashed him a little at the end anyway. That’s who we are in this culture, so change will be slow.

  22. themummy says:

    They were also at a cafe the next day (maybe later the same day) also in tears together. Maybe they lost a baby?

  23. LadyLilith says:

    I’m just here to fully support men openly expressing emotion. Hopefully everything works out for them

  24. raincoaster says:

    Well, those looks ARE tragic.
