Kellie Pickler rocks. 

When a sexy female celeb shaves off her locks, it’s usually for a film role or because she’s having a meltdown, but when country singer Kellie Pickler did it this week, she had a much more serious reason. She’s showing solidarity with her best friend and hoping to raise awareness about breast cancer.

On the episode of “Good Morning America” airing today, former “American Idol” contestant Kellie Pickler shocked viewers by buzzing off all of her blonde hair. Also coming clean was her longtime best friend Summer Holt Miller, who is currently fighting breast cancer and is about to begin chemotherapy.

Pickler explained, “If this compels even one person to change their mentality toward waiting until the age of 40 for their mammogram, then it will be worth it.”

This message is an important one for women in their 30s, who often feel they are too young to get breast cancer. The sad truth is that when women are diagnosed with this cancer before the age of 40, they have a much higher chance of dying from the disease. Women who have a family history of breast cancer must be much more vigilant about being checked regularly.

Best of luck to these BFFs!
