Michael Jackson at O2

This Pop Art portrait of Michael Jackson (1984) by Andy Warhol, commissioned to celebrate Thriller's record sales, goes on show at the British Music Experience in the O2 Arena, London. It then moves to New York for auction. With all the hype surrounding the singer's death, the portrait will probably fetch far more than the £14m ($23.7m) paid for Warhol's equally awful portrait of Elizabeth Taylor in 2007. I wouldn't give you 50p for it.
