MJ glove has Macao hotelier moonwalking

  近日在美国纽约时代广场硬石餐厅的迈克尔·杰克逊物品拍卖会上,流行天王在1983年首次表演“太空舞步”时戴的那双镶满水晶石的手套以35万美元的高价被拍出,买家为中国澳门的十六浦度假村酒店。如果算上拍卖的各项交易手续费用,这双手套的最终身家为42万美元,为此次拍卖中的最高价。拍卖主办方最初估计这双手套的成交价在4万到6万美元之间,但是来自世界各地疯狂的歌迷们不断竞价,使其价格迅速飙升。十六浦度假村酒店的竞拍代表认为他们以此价格得手算是占了很大的便宜。同时出现在此次拍卖会上的,还有一双嵌着金属片的袜子、杰克逊小时候画的一副卓别林像,以及他在《颤栗者》MV中穿的那件衬衫。



For a whopping $420,000, Michael Jackson's rhinestone-encrusted glove is coming to a hotel in the glitzy Asian gambling haven of Macao.
  For a whopping $420,000, Michael Jackson's rhinestone-encrusted glove is coming to a hotel in the glitzy Asian gambling haven of Macao.

  Hoffman Ma, deputy chief executive of the Ponte 16 gaming resort, made the winning bid of $350,000 at an auction in New York on the hotel's behalf. With commission included, the glove cost $420,000 in total, hotel spokeswoman Jennie Yeung said.

  Jackson wore the sparkling glove when he performed his first "moonwalk" dance in 1983. The auction on Saturday featured more than 70 items from the late pop icon's career.

  Legendary gambling tycoon Stanley Ho's Sociedade de Jogos de Macau owns half of the five-star hotel, which will open a gallery next year to showcase the glove and nine other Jackson items from the auction, Yeung said.

  Among the items were a pair of sequin-encrusted socks, portraits of Charlie Chaplin drawn by Jackson as a child, and a shirt he wore in his iconic Thriller video.

  Macao is the only city on Chinese soil to allow casino gambling.

  The decision to buy Jackson memorabilia had been discussed by Ponte 16's senior executives for several months, Yeung said.

  "Michael Jackson is a legendary entertainer and so it was very important to buy some of his collectables," she said.

  In a statement, Ma said: "We aim to create a 'Rendezvous' to reminisce this great performer of the 20th century."

  Ma, a 36-year-old Jackson fan, looked happy after winning the bid on Saturday.

  "It was a fairly good discount," he said.

  During the auction, the price of the glove was increasing rapidly with fans roaring and squealing - similar to the kind of frenzy that accompanied the late pop star when he toured the world.

  The glove was the top item in a collection of Jackson memorabilia on the block at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square. Its pre-auction estimate was $40,000 to $60,000.

  But with Jackson mania surging five months after his death, frenzied bidders from around the world and in New York sent the price rocketing.

  The pop icon, who died June 25 at 50, had given the glove to Walter "Clyde" Orange, of the singing group the Commodores.

  A jacket that Jackson wore on his 1989 Bad tour fetched $225,000 - 20 times its estimate of $8,000.

  The sale, held by Los Angeles-based Julien's Auctions, also included a fedora Jackson wore for the moonwalk. It sold for $22,000 against a $2,000 high estimate.

  New Yorker Linda Derogene said she was willing to spend up to $5,000 for a material link to the performer she's idolized all her life, but never got a chance to see in concert.
