Michael Jackson's surgical face mask is set to go under the hammer at an auction in California this weekend (28Apr12).
The odd accessory is the one the King of Pop was wearing on the eve of his death in 2009.
The macabre item, which features traces of Jackson's make-up and a strand of his hair, is expected to fetch up to $150,000 (£93,750).
The silky mask will be sold by the Nate D. Sanders Auction House.

Michael jackson was a freak. This item is just another reason that shows he was a freak. Wearing a mask in public. Freak and attention seeking. Very little about him was normal and his whole life was suspicious. As for the tabloids. Are fans so up themselves that they think people can't think for themselves? I don't give a fig what is written about anyone. I listened to the man in his many interviews and knew he was soft in the head and a liar. Yes there it is. Independant thinking from someone who is not as gullible as his fans who hung on his every lying word. Jackson was an idiot and that he could dance does not null and void his dishonesty and idiocy. He lied about almost everything about his life down to his children and his fans carry that on and think the rest of the world is wrong. Now a mask is being sold and we are supposed to think there is nothing strange about constant mask wearing. What's not freakish and stupid about that? And Random Axe and the rest of the world are entitled to read and comment on any part of this site. It's not a Michael Jackson site it's a celeb gossip site and is not restricted to just wacko jacko fano's. Anyone can read and comment on anything they want. You think that not being a fan means we cannot make our own determinations. That shows again how blinkered the fans are. He was not the king of pop to us and Liz Taylor saying so does not make it fact but her opinion. Something that others can agree or disagree to. He was a dubious character with a reputation that should not be celebrated. He was dishonest, a druggie and liar. You want to praise that as an ideal then thank god I'm not part of that. He was a disgrace and that is not worthy. He raised children in a house that he brought drugs and dishonest people into. Great parenting. Go ahead and foam at the mouth at that. But if you don't want to hear what the rest of the world think about him, stick to registered and monitored fan sites where you can all gush until your hearts content. Out in the real world, just be aware that the world will not gush over a perv.

So fans claim the rest of the world believe what it written in the tabloids and think we are unable to come to our own conclusions? Are MJ fans really that stupid? How about this for free thinking. Not only do I, also, not pay attention to what tabloids write, I don't believe their nonsense that Gaga is a male or shemale. I dont believe that Will Smith is on the verge of divorce or any other trash that they might publish. I, also, am able to make my own determinations about people but on what they say and do, not what others think. I did form my opinion of Jackson from listening to him and his words. I formed the view that he was a sandwich short of a picnic. Not the full shilling. So this auction is not only stupid, but is a reminder of why he gained the nickname Wacko Jacko. Because it was never a gimmick but some stupid thought formed in his fuddled mind. Fans, there are millions and millions of people who have no interest in him or belief in the words or world of Michael Jackson. But that does not mean they are not allowed to comment. You may not like it and you may not like how their comments are worded but whenever I read fan responses to non fans, it's usually aggressive and insulting. I don't see anyone talking to YOU in that manner. What does that show? Celebs have to take the positive and negative opinions and non appreciation of them, as much as they will accept the praise. It's part and parcel of their chosen life and career. I can say that I considered Michael jackson to be a generally weak voiced singer who could dance. I found him and his life questionable and he lived it in a manner I considered to be dishonorable. I believe he was a liar and incapable of facing and admitting his mistakes and blamed others for them. He was abusive towards substances which he was addicted to when he brought children into his home. Which he continued to use despite children being in his home. I disliked Michael Jackson before he died and I'm not going to change that opinion because he's dead. Because he died does not mean that what was said or thought before no longer applies. It does and fan insults will not change those views and opinions. It's more likely the fans will be part of the formed views as well. I find his fans to be hostile. Like the previous poster commented ..... I don't want to be part of that. And I can say so without abuse and threats.

I no more believe what I read in papers than I do of what floons spout. I am more than capable of forming my views without relying on trashy publications. He was a digusting excuse for a human being and I needed no National Equirer to help me with that. This is not a fan site and is not dedicated to Wacko Jacko. Anyone can read and comment on any article. You don't like what I think of your hero, tough cheese. Go find like minded gullibles like yourself and live in happy ignorance.

People saying that it's wrong to be selling off his mask and no-one should be making money out of him. Not a word that it was odd that a grown man went out in public wearing surgical masks tho lol Now that's the talking point really. And who cares if it's being sold? I mean it's like wanting to own the Elephant Mans bones lololololol

I wouldnt pay a dime to go to any of the tributes because they are still cashing in on MJ and he cant be here to enjoy his life!!! because they took it from him and everything he had !!!

To be clear Random Axe of Kindless, Michael Jackson was not a freak. Be respectful of the dead. He was and is the World's Best Entertainer. He was kind and loving. Stop paying attention to all the tabloid junk.
