Australian City Is Mad At CherApr-25-2012
The Australian city of Adelaide isn't singing the praises of Cher after the entertainer chose to auction off a key to the city bestowed upon the artist in 1990.
Cher recently decided to clean house and put a variety of artifacts up for auction on eBay, including an engraved plaque and brass key to the city of Adelaide, Australia.
The auction ends April 26 and the winning bid could be in excess of $100,000, a price that shocks eBay experts like James Massey, who runs WhatSellsBest, a website that tracks sales of rare and unusual items being sold online.
"It's taking off more than other celebrity items, especially considering what it is," Massey told The Huffington Post. "But, sometimes, the people who bid don't actually have the money to buy an item."
Even if the key sells for that much, Cher could be paying a price for it in the form of negative publicity among prominent Australians like Adelaide's current mayor Stephen Yarwood, who told Adelaide Now that he is "exceptionally disappointed."
