Mariah Carey Buys Marilyn Monroe’s Baby Grand Piano

Mariah Carey buys Marilyn Monroe’s baby grand piano. Mariah Carey paid $662,500 for 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.

She explains, “I could have gotten the ‘Happy Birthday, Mr. President’ dress or whatever, but that would have represented Marilyn Monroe’s stardom. 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.
