We know people love celebrities to the point of obsession. Just look at the hordes of tweens with pictures of One Direction in their closets or Beliebers crying over Justin’s latest Instagram. Celebrity auctions are no different, and the stuff getting sold gets weirder by the day, only to be bought off by the rich and stupid.
It’s almost the end of the month and it’s the same story, I’m running dangerously low on money. And you know what, I’m planning to sell some of my possessions.
Umm, maybe my cup of coffee? Because I have seen that people will buy really anything. And I mean anything.
