Boston-based auction house RR Auction is putting Madge’s handwritten note from May 1994 on the auction block at the end of the month. What’s puzzling … she apparently published the letter on her fansite ICON, but no one took notice.
As for what the letter said … she wrote about “how sexist the world we live in really is” following her disastrous appearance on ‘The Late Show,’ when she dropped the f-bomb 14 times in an excruciatingly awkward interview with David Letterman. It made censorship history.
She goes on … “In this country you are not allowed to be a girl, look good, have a point of view and have a good time all at once. Need I say more.”
The auctioneers say they expect the letter will fetch $2k-$3k … but we know the drill. If the bidding gets hot, it will go way higher.
Online bids will start being accepted Thursday, and the live auction is on Sept. 25.
