America, you've GONE TOO FAR. It's one thing for you to make an American-health-care-hating Canuck our national obsession. But to pay $40,000 for some of Justin Bieber's hair scraps is crossing the line. I've had enough!

eBay won't reveal who the winning bidder was, but the second coming of Justin Timberlake appeared on the Ellen show, hair in hand, for Ellen Degeneres to hawk on her eBay account. The bidding started on February 26 and ended yesterday, with the winner dropping $40,688 on these Anti-American locks. Apparently, the money will go to some charity that lets kids play with cows or something (great!). 

But seriously, what do you do with the chopped off hair of some 16-year-old kid? Build some sort of Voodoo shrine? Implant it into your own scalp? Show it to people? It's all seriously creepy if you ask me.

The hair probably got thrown out. The winner gets to meet Justin Bieber and the money goes to a good cause. I think it is a good thing that the auction went well.

It was bought by the online casino goldenpalace.com, which is known for buying weird shit. On the other hand, they'll probably receive over $40,000 in shoutouts and free advertising, so maybe it's looked at as an investment.

Dear previous comments/idiots: they are making an allusion to Justin Timberlake. Do any of you know what the second coming means? As for the charity, no one is getting down on the farm animals, it just seems like a random choice; congrats to the cows and potential hoodlums!

The hair was bought by goldenpalace.com, an online casino in the UK. Apparently they are going to use it to do more charity stuff in the future.

you're ignorant and disgusting. the money is going to The Gentle Barn, an organization that rescues abused animals and also works with special needs children and at-risk youth. that $40,000 is going to a good cause,regardless where it came from.

The hair belonged to Justin Bieber not Justin Timberlake. What should you care what happens to the hair? The key thing is that a charity that helps children and orphan animals will receive a HUGE donation.

The article said "the second coming of Justin Timberlake", meaning another teen sensation with a fan demographic of white females between the ages of 8 and 15. To these girls the second coming of Timberlake is akin to the second coming of Christ. The article does not refer to Bieber as Timberlake, it merely compares the two individuals.
