How much is Justin Bieber's hair worth? $40,668. Roughly.

Justin Bieber and his (former) locks of love. (Associated Press) Justin Bieber's hair has sold on eBay for a reported $40,668, according to People magazine. Yes, that's the same hair he recently cut, and subsequently donated to Ellen DeGeneres, who in turn auctioned it off as a benefit for the Gentle Barn, an animal rescue organization. The identity of the lucky bidder is unknown at the moment. And what said bidder plans to do with the hair also remains unknown. (Maybe sell it on eBay for $81,336 and immediately double his/her money?) This much is clear: You can still get access to Bieber hair courtesy of this fabulous doll, which will retail for a far more affordable $17.99 in stores later this year....

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez: The Twitter response

After photos of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez kissing leaked on the Internet Monday, the Twitter-verse naturally blew up with expressions of outrage, shock, positive thoughts for the seemingly happy couple and, of course, threats against Gomez's life. And the Tweets are still rolling in. Here's a round-up of some of the more, um, notable comments, which provide a sense of the spectrum of emotions sparked by the most controversial canoodling of our time. Or at least of 2011 so far. This Tweeter bluntly suggests that the star of "The Wizards of Waverly Place" must die. And she's not the only one. .bbpBox22144864913203200 {background:url(http://a3.twimg.com/a/1292975674/images/themes/theme1/bg.png) #C0DEED;padding:20px;} p.bbpTweet{background:#fff;padding:10px 12px 10px 12px;margin:0;min-height:48px;color:#000;font-size:18px !important;line-height:22px;-moz-border-radius:5px;-webkit-border-radius:5px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata{display:block;width:100%;clear:both;margin-top:8px;padding-top:12px;height:40px;border-top:1px solid #fff;border-top:1px solid #e6e6e6} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author{line-height:19px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author img{float:left;margin:0 7px 0 0px;width:38px;height:38px} p.bbpTweet a:hover{text-decoration:underline}p.bbpTweet span.timestamp{font-size:12px;display:block} @selenagomez I hate you.

Justin Bieber gets biopicized (wink wink)

I often find myself wondering where did that Justin Bieber kid come from. I mean, I know he was -- much like Celine Dion -- inflicted on us by Canada, but beyond that and a vague idea that the kid did some subway busking and is kind of a klutz, well, he remains a mystery wrapped in an enigma hidden behind a fringe of heavy sandy brown hair. And I even read his memoir. Lucky for me, and you, the Upright Citizens Brigade has stepped in to fill our Bieber knowledge void with the biopic "8 Kilometer: The Gritty Life Story of Justin Bieber" -- or at least the ridiculously well-done trailer for it: As the folks over at Best Week Ever noted, "Kudos to the casting people for getting a actor who looks exactly like Justin Bieber... maybe a tad bit more masculine." And thank you to the folks...

Justin Bieber, in action figure form

Justin Bieber, in doll form. (Justinbiebertoys.com) It's unclear why it's taken this long for Justin Bieber action figures to hit the market place. But at least those suffering from Bieber Fever don't have to wait much longer to buy them. As Reuters reports, two lines of Bieber dolls -- one that focuses on his style, and another, dubbed the Music Video Collection, that features a pair of singing Bieber figures -- are slated to arrive in stores in early December, just in time for holiday shopping. (On a personal note, this definitely makes choosing a Christmas present for Liz soooo much easier.) The best thing about having a Justin Bieber doll, obviously, is that it will allow people to reenact all those Bieb-related Internet memes and classic moments in doll form. So you can make like Todd Haynes directing "Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story" and create YouTube videos featuring...

Justin Bieber on 'CSI': How did he do?

Justin Bieber made his much-touted appearance on the season premiere of "CSI" last night, forcing 9-year-old girls across America to sit through roughly 23 minutes of bomb explosions, fist fights, scenes featuring disturbing serial killer Nate Haskell and at least one autopsy until the Bieb finally showed up onscreen. Well-played, CBS. Fortunately, the good people at New York Magazine's Vulture blog have compiled all the Bieber scenes into a single video, in what is surely an attempt to stem any further TV-viewing trauma for this nation's youth. The question is: how did Bieber do?...
