Now that's fierce.

Beyoncé, aka Sasha Fierce, shocked fans early Thursday when she posted a series of photos to her Instagram account debuting a short, blond pixie cut. Her dark brown roots still visible, Queen Bey poses in front of a mirror, apparently loving her new look.

Fans, who "liked" the photos each nearly 250,000 times (and counting), posted mixed reactions in the comments, from "don't be like Miley" to "CUTE!!!!"

There is much to be considered with this new 'do on the diva of all divas: First, is it a haircut, or is it the au naturel style that has been hiding under a weave for years? Second, did Beyoncé's hair-meets-fan catasrophe at a recent concert have anything to do with her decision to ditch the length? And most importantly, will the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour experience suffer without her lion-mane locks whipping all over the stage?

Let us know: Do you love Beyoncé's short style? Vote in the poll below.
