Whitney Houston’s Thongs From The Shows

WANNA buy Whitney Houston’s old knickers?

Long gone are the days when a keen fan would be forced to break into their idol’s dressing room and make off with a used hankie or hang about the stage door in the hope of getting an autograph or a shag.

Now you can actually buy the knickers and other lingerie worn by singing legends like Whitney Houston.

A load of Whitney’s goods are on sale. The singer needs money to pay off her debts. As auctioneer Steve Newmark tells the Star: “There’s some pretty personal stuff, even her underwear.”

For Star readers well versed in buying second-hand ladies’ underwear, we cannot confirm or deny that the garments have been laundered. As they know, soiled underwear is where the big money in used knickers is at. And we can only say that you pay your money and hope for the best. Highest bid wins.

But what else is “Debtney Houston” (Mirror) selling off to raise the £76,000 she needs to pay the bill for having them stored. Although the Sun says she needs £500,000 to meet an overdue tax demand.

Among the 400-plus items for sale, the Mirror notes a Schimmel custom-made see-through piano worth up to £200,000, a chair described as ‘Whitney’s Throne’, shoes, music equipment and 29 bustiers.

And there is an award. For any fantasists out there, know that this is your chance to get hold of a Boston Music Award for outstanding male vocalist.

Indeed, this is an eye-opener, a clue perhaps to problems that lurk deep within the Houston psyche. Are those knickers for sale or reassuringly Comfi Y-fronts customised for a more feminine fit? Is Houston a man, a drag act?

The Mail says not. It says this award belonged to Whitney’s former husband, the male singer Bobby Brown.

But it would still be a nice enough thing to own, to sit proudly in your pop museum, alongside that used Cliff Richard tissue, a hair from Noddy Holder’s beard and Gareth Gates…
