Eight Weird Pieces Of Celebrity Memorabilia
The Huffington Post has a list of the Eight Weirdest Pieces of Celebrity Memorabilia Ever Sold. That might be exaggerating things a little bit, but these are all pretty off the wall…
Justin Bieber’s Hair. After Justin cut his hair in 2011, Ellen DeGeneres put a lock of it in a signed box and sold on eBay. It went for $40,668, and the proceeds were donated to an animal rescue foundation.
Scarlett Johansson’s dirty tissue. Scarlett sneezed into a tissue after catching a cold from Samuel L. Jackson. Then she signed it and sold it for $5,300. Again, the money went to charity.
Justin Timberlake’s leftovers. This was back in 2000, when ‘N SYNC was still together. Justin was eating during a morning interview on a New York radio station, and he left some toast behind. The station auctioned it off for $1,025.
Gary Coleman’s Gap Kids Sweatpants. Even as an adult, Gary Coleman was still shopping at Gap Kids. An autographed pair of his sweats went for 500 bucks in 2008. The buyer was Jimmy Kimmel.
Britney Spears’ positive pregnancy test. Britney found out she was knocked up in early 2005 by taking a pregnancy test at a Los Angeles hotel. Someone found it while rooting through her garbage and became richer by a sum of $5,001. The Internet gambling site GoldenPalace.com bought it.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s breath. In 2005, somebody actually made $523 by selling an EMPTY JAR that was supposedly capped off in Brad and Angelina’s presence, thus ensuring that it contained, quote, “air molecules that came in direct contact” with them.
James Blunt’s sister. About 10 years ago, James’ sister needed to get from England to Ireland for a funeral, but the planes were on strike and the ferry was out of season. So he “sold” the opportunity on eBay.
He put up a listing saying a “damsel in distress”, needed a ride. The winning bidder was a guy who had his own helicopter. There’s no word how much he paid, but three years later, he and James’ sister were MARRIED.
John Lennon’s tooth. In the ’60s, Lennon gave an extracted molar to a housekeeper, and said she should give it to her daughter as a souvenir. In 2011, the family sold it for $31,200.
The guy who bought it is a dentist who says he’s going to CLONE Lennon when technology allows.
