Janet Jackson is preparing to auction off a vast collection of more than 800 items, including outfits and costumes worn in her music videos and tours. The auction, which will take place live at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York and online at Julien’s Live on May 21, presents a unique opportunity for fans to acquire a piece of music history.
The assortment features instantly recognizable ensembles that the 56-year-old music icon wore during her Rhythm Nation tour and in the iconic 1993 music video for “That’s The Way Love Goes.” Additionally, bedazzled microphones and commemorative CDs celebrating the platinum status of her blockbuster albums will be up for grabs.
One highlight of the collection is a white puckered shirt with long sleeves, which Janet wore in the music video for “Scream,” a collaboration with her brother Michael Jackson. The song served as the lead single from Michael’s 1995 album HIStory: Past, Present, and Future, Book I, and its stylish black and white music video holds the distinction of being one of the most expensive ever made, with a budget of $7 million.
Die-hard Janet Jackson fans will also have the opportunity to bid on personal items such as her 2003 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish and a bed frame made of rosewood and leather, adding a touch of luxury to their collections.
Prior to the auction, a selection of memorabilia is being showcased to the public at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The exhibition will then move to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on May 8, allowing fans to get a closer look at these cherished items before they find new homes.
With such an extensive and diverse collection available, the Janet Jackson auction is sure to attract both avid collectors and dedicated fans eager to own a piece of her remarkable musical legacy.
