I got you, babe

We never saw moving vans at Cher's place here in Malibu. No sweaty men hauling boxes. Not a trace of activity, in fact, in her hilltop hideaway, a Mediterranean mansion with a bit of goth around the edges. But as everyone from The Star to NPR has breathlessly reported, Cher went the garage sale route, getting rid of everything from her clothes, crucifixes and car to wigs, her high school yearbook and a table lamp made from a taxidermied armadillo.

The sale grossed $3.5 million. The loot's going to charity. Oh, and Cher wants to see what you're going to do with her stuff.

Cher asks that winning bidders send her pictures of the hot stuff in their new homes.

"She jokingly said to me, 'I want to know they're appreciated and cared for and I can call those people in case I want to buy them back,' " said Darren Julien, president of Julien Auction which handled the two-day event with Sotherby's.
