THE military-style jacket that Janet Jackson wore during her 1990 Rhythm Nation tour sold for $81 250 at a Beverly Hills auction on Friday.
The Rhythm Nation cropped black jacket was one of the highlights of a three-day sale of stage costumes.
The tour was her first as a headline solo artist.
The five-time Grammy winner, is selling more than 1 000 of the costumes she wore on stage, on tour, on red carpets and in music videos.
The singer’s most famous outfit – the black leather bustier that was ripped, briefly exposing her breast at the 2004 SuperBowl halftime show – is not included in the auction.
A portion of the auction proceeds will go to the Christian child sponsorship group Compassion International.
