Matisyahu shaved off his trademark: mixed reaction


American Hasidic Jewish reggae and alternative rock musician  Matisyahu (original name Matthew Paul Miller)  revealed to the Twitterverse yesterday that he shaved off his trademark beard. He is the only man  who brought Orthodox Judaism to mainstream music. Had Matisyahu left Judaism all together with her beard?

“No more Chassidic reggae superstar,” 32-year-old Matisyahu wrote on his Web site. “Sorry folks, all you get is me … no alias.” The musician, best known for his hit “King Without a Crown,” explained that he once thought he needed rules “to become a good person,” but said he is now “reclaiming myself. Trusting my goodness and my divine mission.”

He continues, "Get ready for an amazing year filled with music of rebirth.  And for those concerned with my naked face, don't worry…you haven't seen the last of my facial hair." Mixed reaction are coming from fans for his action and dont know how he answers his fans.
