The reggae pop star Matisyahu sent a Twitter message to his followers this morning announcing that he has shaved his beard. The accompanying photo showed a smooth-cheeked Matisyahu posing in front of a mirror, cell phone camera in hand.
Along with the pic came a post on Matisyahu’s website:
A beardless Matisyahu posted a picture of himself today to Twitter. He has just issued the following statement:
NOTE FROM MATISYAHU
This morning I posted a photo of myself on Twitter.
No more Chassidic reggae superstar.
