Ellen DeGeneres wants to make sure pop star Joe Jonas – who took a spill onstage last year – is safe.

On her show, which airs Monday, the talk show host presents the singer with a helmet to wear onstage.

"I hate to cover up that hair," says DeGeneres, "because it¹s good hair, but it's more important that you stay safe."

Accepting the gift, Jonas quipped: "I can pick up some cute chicks."

On the show, DeGeneres plays footage of Jonas falling on broken glass at the American Music Awards last year. Jonas, 18, cut his hand when he tripped over an exploding-glass window prop at the start of the group's hit "SOS."

Earlier this month, Jonas also ended up in the emergency room due to a fall after a concert in Atlantic City.

In that accident he suffered a small cut when he tripped and hit his forehead on a grate while taping one of the group's popular YouTube videos, according to his Hollywood Records rep Lillian Matulic.
