Justin Bieber's hair officially sold: $40,668 well spent

bieber-ellen-hair.jpgHow much would you (or rather, your parents) pay for a lock of Justin Bieber's hair? If the answer is any less than $40K, you must have missed out on the eBay auction for the Bieb's freshly trimmed locks.

Right after the haircut that rocked the world, JB donated his hair in a signed box to Ellen DeGeneres. She then put the item up on eBay with all the proceeds to benefit The Gentle Barn Foundation, an animal rescue charity.

The winning bid came in at $40,668 on Wednesday (Mar. 2). Not only will the winning bidder get to keep the Bieber follicles all to themselves, they will also get a chance to meet the teen dream during his next appearance on "The Ellen Show."

No word yet on who the lucky lady -- or gent -- is, but we are more than a little curious what kind of Belieber had that much money to blow. We are eagerly anticipating the undoubtedly awkward run-in that will ensue.
