Singer Sells Clothes – level 2

22-02-2021 07:00

Janet Jackson is a 54-year-old American singer and Michael Jackson’s sister. Jackson decided to celebrate her birthday in May by selling more than 1,000 pieces of her clothes.

Jackson is going to sell costumes which she wore at concerts, on red carpets, and in her music videos in the last 40 years. One of the most interesting pieces of clothes is a silver coat which Jackson wore in the music video for the song ’Scream’. Jackson is also selling her wedding dress which she wore at her second wedding in 1991. The price of the dress could be between 2,000 and 3,000 dollars.

Julien’s Auction is an auction house in California, US, and it is going to sell Jackson’s clothes. Jackson never sold her clothes in the past and she will give the money to a charity.

Difficult words: wedding (when two people get married), auction house (a company that sells things to people who pay the most money).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
