Michael Jackson

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.

So funny how people are still trading off of Michael's name. And I agree with whoever said the Bodyguard is full of it. Anyone paying attention since 2009 knows those bodyguards are not to be fully believed. One already tried to sell Michael's Orange Pants from TII and got shut down. Now here's one trying to make money off of a Face mask? Even though Michael had barely been seen wearing one in the last years of his life--most definitely not during TII. That phase of his life had passed--even the children weren't covering up anymore....
This story along with the one about the DELUSIONAL Fiddes is just par for the DUMB course...
BTW--It's beautiful to see all of Michael's Supporters here Hey SaraJane, Yvonne, MiMi, LC, Pegasus, Human Nature, Sofi, et al.) I miss him more and more each day so it's AMAZING to be able to come here and feel the love from you guys....
Even the Loonies on board are loyal to Michael. Guess that's why he's STILL the GREATEST ENTERTAINER IN THE WORLD, and has a Tour that's NUMBER ONE even in death!!
No matter what the loonies say, just remember this: they clearly have a LOVE and DEDICATION to Michael that has kept them just as loyal as we are....say what? Guess logic is not exactly their forte.....
There's your DOSE OF REALITY...
BTW--anyone who hasn't seen The IMMORTAL TOUR" should see it asap! This thing really rocks with most of Michael's BEST Music, a GORGEOUS set, and excellent dancers. The only thing is, Michael's not there and it will make you miss him even more....
Sigh.......
MICHAEL I LOVE YOU FOREVER!!

What's the best part of "The Immortal Tour"?
No actual Michael Jackson.


Fewer lawyers at work because there are fewer lawsuits. Not only because of MJ, but the whole family is out of the picture.
Then again, even if MJ was alive, your would still only get 20% of him at best.
The show gives fans what MJ wasn't able to deliver in decades. The fans actually benefited from his death in many ways. Yes stuperfans, keep watching the old footage that was carefully created by the publicists, that's the only thing you have or would accept. The only thing you have to look forward to is being outraged when creepy little details emerge about his creepy little life.


BTW TMZ, the new format is worse then the old one.

I never called all fans stuperfans. Stuperfans are a class all to themselves. I also never said anything negative about the actual show in my opinion. As usual, I stand by my statements, I just think you took them the wrong way.

Very true. Hold on to the little cans, MJ would have wanted it that way. Besides, someday maybe they'll be worth 6 cents!
