Some clothes are really special, for example, her wedding dress. Jackson wears it in 1991. It is her second wedding.

Another special costume is a silver coat. Jackson wears it in a music video. The song is called ’Scream’. Jackson sings it with her famous brother.

Jackson never sells her clothes before. She wants to give all the money to a charity.

Difficult words: music video (a video that is a short movie for a song), wedding (a party where two people get married), charity (an organization which gets money from people and companies and gives them to other people who have little money or who have big problems)
