Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga Goes ga-ga for Michael Jackson Costumes at Auction

Lady Gaga is famed for her eccentricity so it's no surprise that she covets the items of another great eccentric: Michael Jackson. This is probably why she spent $1,000,000 at an auction of his costumes and clothing. 

The auction, held in Los Angeles on December 2nd at Julien's Auctions, was organised by Jackson's costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush with the aim of raising money for charities including Guide Dogs of America and a Las Vegas hospice reports the BBC. Gaga snapped up 55 items, which she tweeted about:

She also tweeted a photo of herself with her betting paddle, and her total $1m bids helped make the night's total $5m. Among the items sold were a jacket that Jackson wore during his 'Bad' tour, a pair of his jeans and two of his jewel encrusted gloves, which sold for $240,000, $40,000 and $100,000 each, respectively. As yet it's unclear what items Gaga bought, and despite her promise to care for them properly, some fans have expressed their displeasure at her plans to privately archive them, because they argue that he wanted them to be held in a museum. Despite these plans we wouldn't be surprised if she cracked out a few of the items in future videos and performances, to further pay homage to his memory. 

Michael Jackson died in 2009, his doctor has since been charged with manslaughter for which he's serving four years in jail.

Are you stupid? You absolutely don't know the KING OF POP!!! MJ's Thriller jacket (1 of 2 - other one being kept by his family) was auctioned for $1.8 million. MJ's glove was auctioned for $350,000 bought by TGIF, and another glove was auctioned for $330,000. A basketball signed by MJ was auctioned for $294,000. The mailbox from the place where he died was auctioned for $20,000, etc. And they were NOT auctioned by MJ's family but by friends to whom MJ gave those stuff, and the owner of the house where he died. The point is, Michael Jackson is the KING OF POP, and everything about him is EXPENSIVE. This is a good investment for Lady Gaga. She knows that in a few years, if she decides to sell these items she can make a good amount of revenue. By the way, the man you're calling Jacko is the owner of Sony/ATV - a record label of Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Beatles, Elvis, Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas, Cold Play etc. Michael Jackson is not only the KING OF POP but the BOSS of music industry. So before you call him any names, take the time to know the man. He is the KING and the BOSS, and his name is Mr. Michael Jackson!
