We enjoyed hearing Kellie Pickler’s beautiful voice on American Idol and fell in love with the star all over again when she shaved her head to support a friend with breast cancer. Following an initial appearance on Good Morning America, Kellie decided to answer a few more questions on the Ellen Degeneres Show. What did Kellie Pickler have to say about the new ‘do?
Kellie Pickler has received a lot of positive feedback following her decision to shave her head. And the positive feedback isn’t aimed at the style itself (although, as always, Kellie looks stunning). What people are really responding to is the devotion Kellie showed to a childhood best friend recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
We’ve been curious about how the no-hair thing has been going for Kellie, which is why we were excited to hear that Kellie stopped for a chat with Ellen Degeneres on Friday. Kellie revealed that, while she was eager to show support for her best bud, she also felt extremely nervous right before she shaved her head. She and Summer (her friend) were thinking, “I hope we don’t have some crazy birthmark or wart or mole or something.”
Turns out, both women really can pull off the buzzed look! And even if they couldn’t, Kellie thinks she still would have had fun. “I went first and…that is probably one of the most beautiful moments of my life. Just being able to do that with her…she’s my big sister. She really is. We’re not blood kin but we are sisters.”
Summer is not the first of Kellie’s loved ones to be afflicted with cancer. Kellie’s grandmother also was diagnosed with the devastating disease, and sadly lost her life as a result. The unexpected nature of this death was especially difficult for Kellie: “It was a different type of cancer, but she passed away the very next morning after being diagnosed.” The heart-breaking loss ultimately strengthened the singer’s resolve to support a great cause.
Kellie Pickler has proven herself to be a truly stunning person on the inside and out. We think she looks beautiful!
