Then try to imagine waking up one day and seeing your old photos and emails strewn all over the internet… and even for sale! For Madonna, this is a popular trend in her life!

Radaronlinereports the details of the Madonna items to be auctioned… “Gotta Have It!”, an online rock n’ roll memorabilia house, is selling a bundle of letters faxed from all around the world, to Albright from Madonna.

Starting off at $2,000, Madonna frequently closed the letters as “Lola Montez,” who was an Irish-born danced known as a King’s mistress, courtesan and dancer. The audio tapes contain voice messages, some sweet and pleading, some barking and accusatory. The phone messages are starting at $25k, the VHS expected to fetch up to $10k.
