'It's clear Michael was worth more dead than alive,' he told me, choking back tears. But he added:'I can assure you Conrad Murray is not the only person who should stand trial.' Frank Dileo

Andy Warhol's painting called, "Eight Elvises" is one of the most expensive contempory works of art ever sold. It went for a staggering $100 million dollars in 2008. Of course, it will only go up in value but it is quite hilarious that Warhol had painted this piece in 1963 from an image of Elvis from his 1960 film, "Flaming Star" It is not the Mona Lisa but then again, that painting is over 500 years old. Elvis being the subject of one of the most highly sought modern day artists in the world is certainly more impressive than greedy Mama Jacky selling off her dead son for whatever she can get and cheapening his tarnished legacy into the ground. Since I take everything the greedy Jacksons claim with a grain of salt, they still owe the IRS $900 million dollars in back taxes. Besides, in the long internet article, it claims that Wacko's posthumous CD "Xscape" went to number one in the US. We know that is definitely false. lol.

It does not matter how much Elvis makes. He has been dead for almost forty years.

Warhol's Campbell's soup cans fetch more money and Manzoni's canned shit sell for more.

Look up the world's most expensive paintings and Andy Warhol was a modern artist. He just recently died in the fairly modern era of 1987 and he can command one hundred million dollars for some of his art already. Pretty impressive if you ask me. You are just sore because Wacko will never be a real artist like Leonardo Da Vinci. If Warhol is selling with the big boys, that means his famous "Eight Elvises" painting will be priceless five hundred years from now. It will be like the Mona Lisa. Therefore, Elvis will definitely live forever. Andy Warhol also painted the clown but it only sold for a lowly one million in 2009. I am laughing my ass off.

Every time I read up on deceased artists' fortunes after they die, the old saying is true: "you're worth more dead than alive".

Post Modern artist, Jeff Koons is alive and sells works for millions now. MJ and Bubbles have been his subjects. When Koons dies his art will continue to increase too. He made lots of MJ sculptures.

In 1991, one version of Michael Jackson and Bubbles sold for $5.6 million.

There are several and they are worth lots more now.

Do you actually attribute the value of the work directly to Wacko Jacko, fool? Do you consider the depiction to be flattering?

8 Elvises is not a painting, it's a silk screen print.

MJ never claimed to be an artist, to him drawing was a creative outlet. The fact that his drawings can fetch so much money is an unexpected bonus.

Jeff Koons is not a sixies cultural icon like Andy Warhol. Besides, I was really surprised that Warhol's art has soared in price so quickly that his work is becoming more valuable. It is because of its personality and rarity among art lovers around the world. The demand is apparently there. One of his Marilyn Monroe paintings went for a staggering eighty million dollars. That is definitely impressive anyway you slice it. Yes, Warhol was considered a modern artist that worked with such artists as Velvet Underground. He also is a huge inspiration to David Bowie and others.

Yes, I've read that Anday Warhol's "Eight Elvis's" is a silk screen print that is still considered a painting. Still, it went for one hundred million bucks. Wacko had to know that he sucked as an artist since he commissioned other artists to do his paintings with himself on the throne with crowns on his head, robes, on horses with swords being knighted and so forth. Michael's drawings can probably be sold to fans. No one else would be interested because they are not that good. Wacko's stuff would be laughed out of any true art gallery. They would be painfully embarrassing displayed next to talented and experienced artists.

No Jeff Koons is a post modern artist from the 80's and very much alive today. BTW Andy Warhol did a painting of MJ too.

Here it is.
