Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez at Maggiano's Justin Bieber celebrates his 17th birthday with girlfriend Selena Gomez. As they left Maggiano's at The Grove, Bieber's lady seemed very keen to hide her face from photographers, perhaps becuase she was sporting a large red lump on her lip.

The pop star, who recently cut his famous 'do in favor a shorter style, donated a lock of his hair to Ellen DeGeneres when appearing on her program.

Ellen put the bit of Bieber on eBay, and bidding quickly heated up, as fans attempted to own a piece of the magic. By the time bidding ran out, the price was skyrocketing. In fact, in the final hour of bidding, the price rose from $16,800 to the winning bid of $40,668.00.

The winning bidder? Golden Palace, a casino known for shelling out for publicity stunts. All of the proceeds from the sale will go to The Gentle Barn Foundation, an animal rescue charity.
