Say Goodbye To Neverland: Michael Jackson To Auction 2,000 Items

December 10, 2008 2:49 PM ET

Maybe it's the recession, maybe because the loss of the Neverland Ranch he has left him with nowhere to house his stuff or maybe because he's just feeling charitable, Michael Jackson will auction over 2,000 items next April through Julien's Auctions, with a portion of the proceeds going to the MusiCares charity. Among the items up for bid include "an astounding array of Fine & Decorative Art items," life-size sculptures, paintings, arcade games and memorabilia from the King of Pop's career, including the highlight: Jacko's glittery glove from the "Billie Jean" video. The auction is so extensive, a six-volume book was printed just to detail every lot. Bids can be submitted starting in February, with the auction kicking off with a live telecast on the Auction Network on April 21st.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
