Alanis Morissette has chopped off her famous waist-length long hair because she was getting sick of having to take care of it.

Morissette recently told pal Ellen Degeneres on a taping of the comedienne's new chat show she was thinking of having a hair cut. DeGeneres actually offered to cut it for her.

But now, days later, the singer has gone for a new look - appearing on America's TODAY show this morning, her hair is now shoulder length.

Morissette says, "It wasn't a tough decision. It's much easier to get up for the world and get ready for the world and tend to more important things than getting tangles out."
