The pop singer recently auctioned off a pair of his skivvies to raise money for victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti. Keep reading to find out all the details about the star’s pricey undies…
Adam Lambert first announcedÂ that he would be auctioning off a pair of his underwear for charityÂ early last week while he was a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show. The undergarments in question were a pair of black boxer briefs with Ellen Degeneres‘ name emblazoned on them. â€œI wore my special Ellen underwear,â€ he told the TV host (and new American Idol judge) while the audience cheered enthusiastically. Lambert added, â€œThey might be a little sweaty, but these are up for auction as well.â€
The underwear were listed for auction on Ellen‘s website until Friday, February 5th. The winning bidder paid a whopping $8,500 for them!Â In addition to winning the American Idol runner-up’s underwear, the bidder also received an autographed picture of Lambert. What does one do with a used pair of celebrity underwear? Wash them? Wear them? Frame them for the world to see?
