On Thursday’s (Sept. 10) “Today,” Justin Bieber brought the Toyota Summer Concert Series 2015 to a close with a couple performances on the plaza. But the big news is that he has gone platinum blonde, which he says took about two and a half hours to do.

Though when Savannah Guthrie asks him if blondes have more fun, Bieber admits that he thinks he has “fun either way.”


Bieber also admits that the recent love and support after the tumultuous year he had in 2014 has been terrific.

“It just feels so great to feel the acceptance. It’s not that that’s where I get my validation, but it shows they’re for me and not against me … I just feel judged and it’s hard, but I’m feeling more confident lately,” says the singer.

The “Today” hosts also ask him if he’d be interested in performing for the Super Bowl halftime show — perhaps with Taylor Swift, which might be a bit of a sticky wicket since she’s BFFs with his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, but Bieber diplomatically says, “I’d be interested. I think that’d be great, I think she’s really talented.”
