The sale of costumes and other memorabilia spanning the career of Michael Jackson netted over $5 million this weekend at Julien’s Auctions in Los Angeles.
Among the collectors who got their hands on a piece of the King of Pop’s music history was none other than Lady Gaga, who placed bids on items including a Jackson-worn glitter glove. “The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived & expertly cared for in the spirit & love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, & fans worldwide,” the singer Tweeted. And while winning bidders’ details are kept confidential, if the final price for the hot ticket items are any indication, Mama Monster spent a pretty penny.
Among the coveted costume pieces – from the collection of Jackson’s long time fashion designers, Tompkins & Bush – was a “Beat It” jacket worn by Jackson on his 1992 Dangerous World Tour, which sold for over $200,000.
