Michael Jackson's Handwritten Lyrics Up for Auction


Michael Jackson
The late King of Pop scribbled some notes for 'Beat It' and gave it to a producer pal who kept it at mint condition.


The handwritten lyrics to Michael Jackson's "Beat It" are to go under the hammer at a memorabilia auction in California next month. The late pop superstar gave his scribbled notes, signed by the King of Pop himself, to a producer pal.

Marc Kruskol, spokesman for auction house Profiles in History, says, "This piece has been in private hands since being written. It's an incredible piece from the legendary King of Pop and it's in fine condition."

The "Beat It" lyrics won't be the highlight of the memorabilia sale - the pink satin gown Marilyn Monroe wore in the "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" sequence in the film "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" is sure to be the main lot. Auction house bosses are calling the gown "the most important film dress to ever come to auction".

The summer sale will also feature "The Wicked Witch of the West" 's hat, Johnny Depp's scissorhands from "Edward Scissorhands" and his Jack Sparrow jacket from "Pirates of the Caribbean". Other items include Darth Vader's light saber from "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi", Julie Andrews' carpet bag from "Mary Poppins" and Bruce Lee's 'Kato' signature from "The Green Hornet".

The three-day auction will feature over 1,500 lots of Hollywood memorabilia. Monroe's gown is expected to fetch between $150,000 and $250,000. Jackson's handwritten lyrics are expected to go under the hammer for between $4,000 and $6,000.
