The power of Marilyn Monroe, y'all!

Decades after her untimely death, the actress' mystique continues to draw people in. It works so well, in fact, that some people are willing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a pair of rhinestone earrings that she once wore.

Rhinestone! NOT diamond! Not even a sapphire or ruby!

At a recent two-day auction of Hollywood memorabilia at Julien's Beverly Hills gallery, a pair of rhinestone drop earrings that Marilyn wore to the premiere of The Rose Tattoo in 1955 sold for a whopping $185,000 to a foreign collector.

Dayum!!! Those have got to be the most expensive rhinestones ever!

Other items that sold included a lighter once used by Humphrey Bogart that went for $19,200, and a Pontiac Firebird owned by David Hasselhoff that went for $152,600.

The car was still cheaper than the earrings! Cray!!!

Johnny Cash's Jumpsuit Auctioned For $50k!

Wow! This is INSANE!

A jumpsuit once worn by Johnny Cash during a rehearsal at San Quentin prison was auctioned off yesterday, after a bidding war that ultimately peaked at the selling price of $50,000!

Darren Julien, President and CEO of Julien's Auction, says:

"Johnny Cash is a true legend and his collectibility spans all continents. Bidders from around the world participated in the auction, proving that the Man in Black's legacy will forever live on."

Indeed it, will!

But apparently his legacy doesn't come for cheap!

The 321 lots offered - including the aforementioned jumpsuit, an acoustic guitar he used to write I Walk The Line, and various handwritten lyrics - ended up pulling in over $700,000 combined!

Unbelievable!

Thoughts??
