Matisyahu Explains About the Beard Thing

Matisyahu did a radio interview on WNYC where he discussed his reasons for shaving off his beard and payos. Apparently he is still going to the synagogue, still hitting the mikveh and still rocking a big ol’ kippah. Below is the video of the interview in two parts. It doesn’t seem as if he’s given up on his Judaism and he remains soft spoken, understated and modest.

Part 1

Part 2

So what’s your take on Matisyahu’s “transformation?” Is he selling out? Or is this a non-story?
