London: Teen singing sensation Justin Bieber, who recently got a haircut, has his locks being sold on internet auction site eBay for charity.

A website reported that his locks are listed on the internet auction site with the current top bid at $7,200. The sale is said to end March 2 and the unusual item has so far attracted interest from 61 users.

The locks are being sold by Ellen DeGeneres, who received some of his hair as a gift when Bieber appeared on her talk show this week.

As he handed the strands to the 53-year-old star, he said: "That`s my hair. I`m giving pieces of it to different people. We`re doing something special. We want you to donate it to whatever charity you want to."

DeGeneres is donating all proceeds from the auction to animal rescue foundation The Gentle Barn.
