Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga Buys Michael Jackson Costumes At Auction

Lady Gaga is now the proud owner of 55 pieces of Michael Jackson memorabilia she purchased at an auction on Sunday (02Dec12).

A number of the King of Pop's most iconic stage costumes went under the hammer at Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles, and Gaga was among the collectors who turned up to bid.

The Bad Romance singer tweeted photos of herself and her bidding paddle at the sale, and later promised followers she would look after the 55 lots she purchased.

In a post on Twitter.com, she writes, "The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived & expertly cared for in the spirit & love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, & fans worldwide."

The star attraction was Jackson's Bad tour jacket, which fetched $240,000 (£150,000), while a white Swarovski crystal-encrusted glove pulled in more than $100,000 (£625,000).

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Guide Dogs of America and Nathan Adelson Hospice of Las Vegas.

Perfect!! I'm so glad that someone has bought MJ's things that will definitely not only take care of them, but will not see fit in a year or two to try and score some money from them. I hate it when any of MJ's things have been auctioned off like he had no family especially his children. People are always trying to use MJ's family claiming that their greed is why they have no rights to his things and the Estate seems also at times so against MJ's family by claiming they are looking out 100% for MJ's image and his mom and kids, but they themselves also benefit from MJ's image monetarily to, but that part they never want to talk about. There has even been talks that some of these items are fake. Maybe what the Estate along with MJ's mom and kids should reopen Neverland as an Michael Jackson Museum and instead of selling off his life one piece at a time they should put them on display for all the world to see and they can even charge if that's what they want to do. If Priscilla and Lisa Marie can make a Graceland out of Elvis' life I truly don't see the problem. I hope other stars who loved, respected and honors MJ legacy do what Lady Gaga has done!!
