Justin Bieber's Hair Auctioned Off for $40,668
One week after Justin Bieber gifted Ellen DeGeneres with an autographed container of his freshly chopped locks, the 17-year-old's hair was auctioned off for a whopping $40,668!
"We're doing something special," Bieber told DeGeneres, 53, during a Feb. 23 appearance. "We want you to donate it to whichever charity you want."
Online casino GoldenPalace.com placed the winning bid. Proceeds will go to the Gentle Barn Foundation, which rescues and rehabilitates animals in need of care.
This isn't the first time DeGeneres has sold celebrity items for charity. Elvis Presley's hair recently went for $15,000, while Adam Lambert's Ellen underwear sold for $10,000, and Gwen Stefani's costume nabbed a cool $5,000.
