Records, nail polish, movie tickets, hair: it’s official, Justin Bieber can sell anything. A lock of his freshly-chopped tresses, which he’d gifted to Ellen DeGeneres in a signed box the day after his much-buzzed-about cut, was put to auction on eBay last week, and today, sold for a whopping $40,668. The entire sum will be donated to animal rescue organization The Gentle Barn Foundation, per DeGeneres, and the winning bidder will get to meet the teen superstar the next time he appears on The Ellen Show. Bieber and DeGeneres shared a few silly Tweets leading up to his talk show appearance last week, with the host asking the singer to bring her a “surprise” when he visited. After receiving Bieber’s hair, DeGeneres immediately put it on eBay, and within an hour the bid was already up to $10,000. No word on who Wednesday’s winning bidder was just yet, but no doubt that today there’s one less lonely girl out there. –Kate Hogan

um lisa I’m just going to say Justin Bieber could have his hair like it was because he knew that his fans loved it and he loved it too but instead he took a risk and cut it and then he found out who his real fans where and donated for a GOOD charity so stop dissing him ok? You’re making yourself look bad.

Charity is charity. Does it really matter which organization the money went to? All the money Ellen gets from selling celebrity items on ebay gets donated to a charity of her choosing. I think Justin Bieber is a great kid. I have all the respect in the world for who he is and what he does. It’s too bad people don’t like him because they’re jealous of his fame and success.

Hey HG – Do some research. This kid raises tons of money for a variety of charities that cater to children with special needs. And those haters that think the money should have gone to single moms, I am a single mom of three and I do just fine. It’s called education and hard work. America is SUPPOSED to be a country of humanity and as such, we have a civic duty to protect life, including animals. Since the money didn’t come from your pocket maybe you don’t need to worry about where it’s going. And if you are so concerned about the lack of money and effort given to your charity of choice, get out YOUR checkbook. JB is an amazing kid that has been raised right, with strong values and has more heart in his pinky than most people do in their entire being.
