Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner Has Shaved All His Hair Off And The Internet Can't Deal
Arctic Monkeys front man Alex Turner has given his locks the chop, and is now sporting a shaved head - which is one way to combat this never-ending heatwave, I guess.
Woah, check out the haircut on #AlexTurner! @ArcticMonkeys fans, what do you think??
Tune in to #LSSC tonight to see #ArcticMonkeys perform 'The Ultracheese' :guitar: pic.twitter.com/L3zQhjIwtH

The musician's new 'do will be debuted on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight, where alongside showing off his newly cropped hair, he'll also be performing new track The Ultracheese.
Fans have mixed feelings about Al bae's new hair. Some love it, some don't. Some don't think it matters (it doesn't).
those that disrespect alex turner over a simple hairstyle don't deserve him.

Anyways it's 4:30, I'm tired, today was fun and i hope Alex knows that he could tattoo a lizard on his bald head and we would still love him because at the end of the day
he's Alex Turner and he's a genius, regardless of how he looks. Have a nice day.

It's a drastic change from the teddy-boy-look he used to rock, or his more recent style, which I like to call 'man who smokes roll ups at a social club'.
The highly anticipated sixth studio album, which was released in May, was a massive smash for the Sheffield band, managing to outsell the rest of the UK Top 20 combined, according to the Official Charts Company.
But for as many fans that loved it, there was a few who were less than happy with the band's latest offering, with some questioning why Turner ditched the guitar and played piano.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1, Turner said: "The guitar had lost its ability to give me ideas. Every time I sat with a guitar I was suspicious of where it was gonna go. I had a pretty good idea of what it might be which is completely contrary to what I felt when I sat at the piano."
Going further, he explained to the Sydney Morning Herald: "I've written loads of songs on that guitar, but then I reached a point where I knew the types of moves I always tend to make on the guitar. So, I scurried off towards the piano and started to look for ideas there."
