The Michael Jackson Auction - Part 1

What I learned from The Michael Jackson Auction:

However rich and successful you are, nobody really knows how you'll be several years down the road. Back in the day, you can't be more successful than Michael Jackson. But now...?

June Update: Just a few weeks before the "This is it" farewell concert, Michael Jackson passed away due to cardiac arrest. Watch the famous dancing inmates as they pay tribute to the King of Pop for the lat time - Click here for Michael Jackson's Thriller.

April update: This auction was eventually called off. He had filed suit to halt sale of items from Neverland ranch. All items will be returned back to him. He sold his Neverland ranch last year, but he claims he didn't authorize sale of items.
