Lady Gaga treated herself to an early Christmas gift this weekend by purchasing some of Michael Jackson‘s most memorable costumes. She spent over hundreds of thousands of dollars on 55 items once owned by the King of Pop himself.
The jacket that Michael wore on his Bad Tour was sold at $240,000, and a pair of crystal encrusted gloves sold at $100,000 each, which were both purchased by Lady Gaga.
She ensured fans that these purchases aren’t just for her own pleasure but that it is to keep Michael’s legacy safe. She tweeted, “The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived & expertly cared for in the spirit & love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, & fans worldwide.”
Some proceeds will benefit Guide Dogs of America and Nathan Adelson Hospice of Las Vegas.
