While you're mulling over whether or not it's a travesty that Katy Perry tied his singles record, check out Michael Jackson's art collection, which our sister blog Style Council got the very first peek at.

This isn't art that MJ collected, mind you, it's mainly paintings and drawings that he created himself, now stashed in a Santa Monica Airport hangar under the curation of Brett-Livingstone Strong, Jackson's art mentor. And it's surprisingly good. Sound hard to believe? See for yourself.
