Perhaps Justin Bieber was trying to evade the paparazzi. Or maybe, at 19, he was trying out a new look.
Either way, after growing an adorable mustache over the last couple of days, the "Baby" singer abruptly shaved off the peach fuzz—alas, disappointing any Beliebers out there who may have wanted to nickname him Don Juan de Bieber.
On Friday, Bieber posted a couple of other photos of the new facial hair with the captions "Growing out the stash lol" and "And Rick my stash." Included along with those were several shots of some of his friends' whiskers as well.
But now that he's reverted to the clean-cut teen idol we're used to seeing, we imagine it's only a matter of time before the debut of the Bieber beard.
After making stops in Barcelona and Madrid, Bieber is currently in Paris on the European leg of his Believe Tour.
