"Off with his head!" might as well be the U.K.’s response to Justin Bieber's remarks about the receding hairline of Prince William.
"I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia. I don't know why he doesn't just get those things, those products. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?" Justin asked Rollercoaster magazine.
But now the teenager with a luscious head of hair has found himself at the center of a backlash in the U.K. from fans of William who have jumped to his defense.
"The Brits are viewing Justin Bieber's diss about Prince William's challenging hair problem in the same way you view an annoying fly buzzing around you. He needs to be swatted away," British journalist and author of "Wicked Whispers," Jessica Callan, told me. "Wills and Prince Harry may joke about William's thinning hair, but that doesn't mean a kid like Justin can come sauntering in and join in the joke. It's like inviting someone over for dinner and they tell you how awful your carpet is. Even if you agree, how dare they say it? So the Biebs had better watch out! Wills may be thinning on top but he is one cool royal and landed himself the hottest future queen England has ever had. How can Justin and his girly hairstyle possibly compete with that?"
However, it's not just the Brits who think Justin should shut up. Leigh Rossini, director of publicity for Louis Licari Salons and star of Oxygen's new reality show "Girlfriend Confidential," says that Bieber should worry about his own haircut, "instead of worrying about how a prince wears his hair!" Ouch.
