In honour and in celebration of Janet Jackson’s birthday, Kim Kardashian spent a small fortune to bid on one of Jackson’s classic music video outfits.
With a winning bid of $25,000, Kardashian became the proud owner of a custom-made top and pants worn by Jackson in her 1993 “If” video.
And we know this because she posted about it on her Instagram story, right after wishing Ms. Jackson a Happy Birthday.
