Lohan and Bieber and Sheen, Oh My…

At a time when we have accidental front row seats to the unraveling of teen stars who are all grown up (yes Ms. Lohan and Mr. Sheen…duh…winning), it is nice to see the flipside…when celebrity doesn’t chew up and spit out a young person (I know, Charlie Sheen is old enough to be Lindsay Lohan’s dad, but he was young when he first hit it big as part of a famous entertainment family)

Justin Bieber, he of the most beloved head of hair since Dorothy Hamill, has donated his locks to love (though not directly TO Locks of Love–a fantastic organization.) The teen heart throb, who croons to screaming throngs around the world, cut off a hank of hair and gave it to Ellen DeGeneres to auction in support for her charity, The Gentle Barn, which takes in orphan animals and works with at-risk kids, teaching them how to care for other beings. That little lock of hair was put up on eBay, and brought in nearly 100 bids, with the final selling price of….wait for it….$40,668.00 For his HAIR! Rock on Justin! Keeping in the same vein, Justin reached out to fans around his 17th birthday, asking for donations he hoped would total $17,000 to give to charity:water, and already, that campaign has raised $45.306.95! His birthday was March 1, but you can continue to donate to the cause here.
