Over $20,000 at Auction

A black surgical mask that Michael Jackson allegedly wore the night before he died in 2009 has hit the auction block -- and the bids have already surpassed $20,000.

According to the auction house -- Nate D. Sanders Auctions -- MJ wore the mask (above) while rehearsing for his "This Is It" concert tour on June 24th, 2009 ... the singer's last ever rehearsal.

The auction house claims the mask  -- made of silk fabric, personally designed by the King of Pop -- contains visible traces of MJ's stage make-up along with a strand of his black hair.

One of MJ's former bodyguards was in possession of the mask, and swears by its authenticity. MJ famously wore surgical masks outdoors as a form of disguise.

No Ohwell, not a fan. Just amused at what MiMi posted about your nic posting even before Michael died. Talk about a fanatic. And you talk about others. Gees.

That's funny, he used the mask as a disguise, ha ha ha. Meanwhile he dressed like a reject from Liberace's army.
If he want to disguise himself, he should have tried to look normal and not like a reject from the alien autopsy videos.


The only thing to surpass the freakshow that was Michael Jackson, is the freakshow that is his fan base. I always love how they say to "get a life" and "move on" when themselves can't move beyond where MJ was 20 years before his death. Yes, move on you desperate old heifers, MJ was never going to be your prince charming coming to rescue you from your miserable lives, you never even had a chance. In the same way you speak against MJ's non-supporters for believing the negative press, you insist on believing the fairytale that his publicist fed you. You were played for fools for so many years and you still ask for more.


dose of reality,

you rock!

this is the truth. the fans are the worst people on earth. its clear that all that has been michael jackson within the last 20 of his life, have been devoted to these misfits. its all been lies, propoganda, media tales and tabloid controversey to create this victim that "he" coated his fans with. they all went for all his crap. they bought it all, and are still willing to buy anything he puts out, including this freakin mask and the orange pants (MIMI is willing to be evicted for these pants, just to smell this guys crotch)! she would probly give her left arm for his gold pants (pants MIMI, wholeheartdly).

the fans like human error, kim, nan, they wait patiently (creating new nics to come after people that oppose their distorted views) for a story here on tmz because they cant get enough. well, i on the other hand, like to come here to bash them because they lead non productive lives. leave it to human error to suggest that she has multiple screens to function, (real dumb crap coming from someone that longs for Dr. Murrays crap going down the tubes) she is the rabid-est of them all. she does not sleep nor bath because she lies in waiting for a michael jackson drip/story.

there is something wrong with this kind of behaviour these people exhibit. however, it actually blends well with michael jacksons behaviour. its a strange, impulsive kind that lacks the common sense for reality. that guy michael jackson, in the last 20 years of his life was a freak, and so are his devoted fans, subjects, losers, or what ever you dummies call yourselves.

Thanks Black or White.

StupidNature (AKA Duckie), why would I compare MJ to Jesus? I would think that you would have to consider that sacrilegious. Besides, can you deny any of the comparisons to Hitler I've laid out? In fact, I used your own hero worship and propaganda to prove my point.


Fame and popularity are no indicator of greatness. As much as his fans made him famous, his freakish ways made him infamous. As much as you claim to hate reports on the negative aspects about MJ, you can wait to read them just so you could be outraged. For example, I know you were disgusted at the MJ "death photo", yet I'm sure you just had to see it. You couldn't help yourself and I'm sure you didn't leave the webpage or TV channel it was displayed on until you got a good look.


MJ always wanted to play the victim role and get people's sympathy and claim to be a prisoner of his fame. Well, if that's true, his fans are to blame.


Simply being popular does not make you great. I've stated before that his talents, especially in the second half of his life were greatly exaggerated. His fans (fan being short for fanatic) would have lined up to listen to him fart in a cardboard tube and called it the most innovative art form in over a century. He was not a consummate performer, a performer performs, they have to. If he was, he would have been performing in front of any crowd, showing up unannounced at local places just for the joy of it, just as many musicians and comedians do. Sure, he did 2 or 3 big tours in the past but they are no comparison to the amount of shows that acts like Springstein, Metallica, U2 etc. do on a consistent basis. Just as "a writer writes" "a performer performs".


Michael Jackson's flaws greatly outweigh anything he was ever a part of doing. He had immense wealth and the love of millions of fans and squandered it all and took everyone for a ride, suckers.

See, I did all that without mentioning that he was a monster that profiled and preyed on pubescent boys from troubled homes. If there is a hell, I'm sure he's right there keeping Adolph company.

I also think it's funny how the stuperfans call everyone else haters when they themselves take every opportunity spew hatred. They associate MJ with "love" yet that's not what they are about. If what you say about MJ was true, would he approve of your actions and words? I doubt it.


Another funny thing is how they try to associate MJ with their own twisted beliefs in religion and insist that he somehow fits into them. If you did not give the hypocritical allowance for MJ being MJ, I doubt that they could approve of many aspects of his public persona, crotch grabbing, acceptance of people that are homosexuals, and his relationships (for the sake of argument, just the relationships you acknowledge).


OK, back to the freakshow!

It has always surprised me how little attention philosophers have paid to humor, since it is a more significant process of mind than reason. Reason can only sort out perceptions, but the humor process is involved in changing them.

Most executives, many scientists, and almost all business school graduates believe that if you analyze data, this will give you new ideas. Unfortunately, this belief is totally wrong. The mind can only see what it is prepared to see.
