In case you missed that earth-shattering new last week, Justin Bieber cut his hair. So now Ellen Degeneres is auctioning off a lock of Bieber's hair for charity. Bidding on eBay has currently reached $7,100. Really? Really? Well, at least it's for a good cause. Got $7,101 burning a hole in your pocket? You can place your bid here. [eBay]
