We couldn’t help but notice that Bieber’s new ‘do looks like one of the fuzzy ‘Star Trek’ furballs landed on his head!

In case you’ve never seen Star Trek, a Tribble is a galactically adorable furball that multiplies quickly and makes this strange, weirdly soothing purring noise. And now we’ve found one in the wild. On top of Justin Bieber‘s head.

Yesterday, Justin made big Internet waves with a new haircut — a few strands pushed this way, a little cowlick turned that way were all it took — but for us, it brought to mind a lost Tribble.

Not sure if Biebz is a Trekker, but we hope this latest cut isn’t one that … klings on.
