Kellie Pickler has shaved her head for the most important of causes: to show solidarity with good friend Summer Holt Miller, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in June.
Was she afraid to take this step? Does she have any regrets? The former American Idol favorite opened up to Ellen DeGeneres on the latter's talk show Friday.
"It's just hair!" Pickler said. "I will be honest with you, I was a little nervous and she was too. [We thought], 'I hope we don't have some crazy birthmark or wart or mole or something... but we had fun."
Pickler, who lost her grandmother to this disease, said she simply wanted to be there through chemotherapy with Miller.
"I think it's important to have a cancer buddy," Pickler said the experience, adding that her pal is "doing good" despite the obvious difficulties:
"It's hard on your body, it's hard on your mind. It's not an easy thing to go through. But she's a strong woman and she's handled it with such grace."
