You won't believe what items of Madonna's is being auctioned -- with no profit for her

21 August 2014 / 2 years 2 months ago

Underwear worn by Madonna, her diary from 1988 and the outfit she wore in the 'Material Girl' video are among the unusual items being auctioned in a sale of memorabilia.

Madonna's used underwear is being auctioned.

The biggest collection of memorabilia relating to the 'Material Girl' hitmaker will be sold by Julien's Auctions of Beverly Hills on November 7 and among the lots up for grabs is "the latex mask, waspie, gloves, bra and panties worn with Katy Perry for a 2014 V Magazine cover photo shoot", which is worth $1,000-$4,000.

Asked if it was "creepy" that someone will own Madonna's pants, her publicist Liz Rosenberg told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column:

"If the shoe fits, then wear them in good health."

Among the more unusual items up for grabs are the star's diary from 1988, which includes hand-written entries detailing an appearance on 'Late Night with David Letterman' and dates with then-husband Sean Penn, and a signed document relating to the former couple's separation.

Also on sale are costumes the 56-year-old star wore in her movies 'A League of Their Own', 'Evita', and 'The Next Big Thing', negatives and prints of nude pictures Madonna posed for in 1979 - some of which later appeared in Penthouse magazine - and the Marilyn Monroe-inspired red dress, stole and jewellery from her 'Material Girl' video, which are expected to fetch $20,000-$40,000 in the sale.

Madonna's publicist said the singer is currently on vacation with her four children and is unaware the auction - which she will not profit from - is taking place.

She added: "I do not believe any of what is being auctioned off was in Madonna's possession.

"Designers often supply clothes for shoots that are then returned to the designers."
