Justin Bieber sells lock of his hair for animal charity

A lock of Justin Bieber's hair has been sold for a whopping £25,000 in aid of an animal charity in America.

The teenage superstar chopped off his trademark fringe last month and gave a lock of it to American TV talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres to auction off.

Loads of the Biebster's fans were upset by his new image, but there's no signs of a cure for Bieber Fever in the UK.

Justin arrived in London this week ready to kick off his UK tour in Birmingham on Friday night.
