The auction of Michael Jackon's belongings has been called off, after a settlement between the auctioneer and Jacko's lawyers have been reached, and we have to say we're feeling a little bittersweet about it all. The thought of owning Michael Jackson's belongings is a surreal thought in itself. The man has more bizarre collectibles than anyone else we can think of, and the idea of paying money for one of his diamond encrusted gloves is all too much for us to fathom. So we thought we'd show you what exactly MJ would be giving away and what you might be missing out on, with some help of Videothing.com.
Aside from the standard Platinum records, ridiculous costumes, Disney memorabilia and the occasional self-indulgent Michael Jackson portrait, Videothing [via LA Weekly] showed us the massive collection of children statues the king of pop owns. We don't know how to say this in the most tasteful of manners, but if all the other bizarre collectibles don't make it apparent, at least the statues of small children playing indicate that Jacko is a whacko, and probably a creep as well. We did enjoy the painting from Macaulay Culkin circa 1991, though. Perhaps he missed his true calling as the next Jackson Pollock.
If you missed your chance to get a piece of the Neverland Ranch this time around, don't worry. This probably won't be your last opportunity. Just give it another few years, and a few more inappropriate allegations against Jackson, and you'll probably have one more chance to get your paws on that authentic Pinocchio doll you always wanted.
