Leann Rimes took a style cue from Michelle Obama and had celebrity hairstylist Andy Lacompte give her a trendy set of long, chunky bangs.

"I got banged," Rimes, 30, joked on Twitter. "Love em! Was time for a fun change."

"I woke up one day and wanted a change,” Rimes told People of her new 'do. “I saw a photo [of an artist] at Capitol Records and I loved her hair, so I cut it the next day."

Rimes is often the subject of tabloid fodder thanks to her very public feud Brandi Glanville, the ex-wife of Rimes' husband Eddie Cibrian.
