When Justin Bieber chopped his famous hair two weeks ago, he mentioned that he would be donating his locks to charity to be auctioned off. Well, the results are in and one lucky eBay bidder paid a whopping $40,668 for the autographed box o’ Bieber hair. Bieber gave the hair to Ellen DeGeneres on her show last week, and Ellen put it on eBay, noting that all the proceeds would go to The Gentle Barn Foundation, an animal rescue. Ninety-eight bids later some lucky, wealthy girl and/or her crazy mom is the proud owner of Bieber DNA. Don’t go getting any cloning ideas, whoever you are.
While it seems ridiculous that someone would pay that much for old, dead bangs, the winner will also get the chance to meet Bieber the next time he appears on Ellen’s show, which is a bonus. Not sure it’s a $40,668 bonus, but still, it’s nice that they threw that in.
