Singer Mariah Carey has revealed that she paid a whopping $662,500 to buy a piano owned by Marilyn Monroe, because she identifies so closely with the legendary star.
The singer splurged on the piano at a Christie's auction featuring Monroe's memorabilia and put it in her newly remodeled penthouse in New York City.
"I could have gotten the 'Happy Birthday, Mr President' dress or whatever, but that would have represented Marilyn Monroe's stardom,” she was quoted by Contactmusic, as saying.
"The piano belonged to her mother and was a piece of her childhood." Carey has also decorated one of her bathrooms with photographs of the star and other Monroe memorabilia,” she added.
