DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY BIDDING ON MICHAEL JACKSON’S SURGICAL MASK!
We’re always fascinated to learn about rich people spending money in ways that never occurred to us. Who knew that Michael Jackson had custom-made surgical masks designed to his own specification? He had BLACK silky fabric instead of the usual white cotton blend to give the item a hipper edge. (Wouldn’t skin color have been less intrusive?) He wore the masks whenever he was out in public but we’re not sure if it was to avoid germs or to cover up his crumbling nose. (Did his housekeeper wash and iron them?) There must have been quite a few left behind when he died. We were surprised to learn that he even wore the masks when he was rehearsing for his final “This is It” tour. TMZ says the last mask he wore to rehearsal was put up for auction by one of his bodyguards and already has a bid of $20,000. It’s expected to bring up to $150,000! THIS mask has smudges of Michael’s makeup on it and a black wig hair. We advise fans to hold off – many more of these masks will probably pop up for sale at a better price.
