Michael Jackson's Death Bed For Sale, Thanks But No Thanks

mj-embed
It doesn't really surprise us that the contents of the late Michael Jackson's house went up for auction, but there was one item that really threw us for a loop. The bed that MJ passed away in will soon be put up for bids and has already amassed a hefty price tag. The auction starts at around $3,000, with the option to go way up from there. Don't get us wrong: We would all love to get our hands on an item from the King of Pop's house, but we were thinking more like a studded glove than a dead man's bed. (Haunted much?)

Along with the bed, an antique headboard and pricey paintings are expected to gain a lot of attention, as well as some even more personal items including a chalkboard with "I (heart) Daddy. SMILE, it's for free" written on it, and an antique armoire mirror where Jackson posted a message to himself regarding this unfinished final tour. Auctioning off the contents of his house is definitely a great way to spread MJ's music legacy to his fans (and, given the Jackson's propensity for cash, unsurprising), but we'd rather spend our money on something maybe a little less morbid than a death bed.
