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

I’m glad that it went to an animal shelter, most people don’t think they’re worth any attention. I’ve been trying to convince people that they deserve help too, but nobody listens. it’s nice to hear that i’m not the only one that thinks that. (:

I am so glad the money is going to an animal rescue foundation! :) He is a very talented and generous young man. It might be a strange thing to auction off, but it went to a very worthy cause nonetheless! You rock Biebs!

Lisa and HG- you should be ashamed of yourselves! It was Ellen’s decision to pick that charity! The world would be a better place if more people treated animals with the respect they deserve! They live on this planet too! This charity is as deserving as the next! Thank You Ellen! I love animals just a much a you do!
