NEW YORK (AP) – The controversy around Michael Jackson after the film “Leaving Neverland” came out has not hurt his bottom line. Forbes magazine says Jackson is the top earning dead celebrity in the past year, with $60 million.

A fun event “greases” the coffers of a good cauce…..

BEVERLY HILLS, California (AP) – The skintight leather pants and leather jacket Olivia Newton-John wore for the final scene of the movie “Grease” has sold at auction for a combined $405,700 to two collectors.   The jacket sold for $243,200.   The pants, which Newton-John famously had to be sewn into, sold for $162,500.  

Julien’s Auctions says the items sold at auction over the weekend in Beverly Hills, California.

A Pink Ladies jacket from the movie sold for $50,000.   A sleeveless white knee-length dress Newton-John wore for her 2008 wedding sold for $2,880.   The torch she carried for the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney sold for $3,840, and her outfit from “Sharknado 5″ sold for $2,240.  

Newton-John has asked people who placed winning bids for her stuff to send her photos of themselves with the items, because she’s curious where the items ended up.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre in Australia.

Krispy Kreme might want to rethink this as a prime marketing opportunity…  “donuts so good, here’s what this guy did…..”

ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) – A Minnesota college student says Krispy Kreme has told him to stop making doughnut runs to Iowa.

Twenty-one-year-old Jayson Gonzalez of Champlin, Minnesota, would make weekend runs to a Krispy Kreme store in Clive, Iowa, and pack his car with boxes of doughnuts that he would deliver to customers around the Twin Cities.   But less than a week after the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported about his road trips, Gonzalez says he received a phone call from Krispy Kreme’s Nebraska office telling him to stop selling the company’s doughnuts in Minnesota.

Krispy Kreme stores left Minnesota 11 years ago.   Gonzalez tells the Pioneer Press he was told his sales created a liability for the North Carolina-based company.  

In a statement Sunday night, Krispy Kreme said it’s looking into the matter.

The 3M company will no longer participate in the time change…..

MAPLEWOOD, Minnesota (AP) – While most everyone wishes they could turn back time, one of the largest corporations in the country is sick of it.

Minnesota-based 3M is taking advantage of the end of daylight saving time and removing about 1,000 wall clocks at its 400-acre Maplewood campus.  For decades, nearly two dozen people worked in 12-hour shifts for two weekends a year to adjust the time and put in new batteries.

Plant engineering supervisor Tom Berg tells Minnesota Public Radio that the cost of the time changes averaged about $35,000 a year. Berg says this is a way for the company to be more efficient and get rid of something it doesn’t need.  

A few of the timepieces are being donated and the rest recycled.
