Taylor Swift, One Direction, Coldplay Auction Tickets for Charity

Artists like Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Maroon 5 and One Direction have generously offered up show tickets and other special prizes to auction off for charity.

The charity in question is Get Prepared California drive, which benefits earthquake response programs in California.

Coldplay has offered up show tickets in Paris, a vineyard tour and four nights in a Parisian hotel. Taylor Swift is offering up show tickets to see her in Canada, and early estimates say the tickets will probably go for $15,000 each.

British boyband One Direction is giving away tickets to see them play in Los Angeles, a Hollywood shopping spree, and a trip to a day spa.

Ehhh, not worth it. Unless I get a shopping spree with the guys of One Direction, this gift is worthless. Oh don’t act like you haven’t searched for “Harry Styles One Direction” on youtube!

Celine Dion is also offering up tickets, soccer star Landon Donovan is auctioning a meet-and-greet, and the cast of The Jersey Shore are throwing a party for the auction winner. I would love to know the person that bids on that auction item…and then judge them.

In other One Direction news (I know it’s not a segue but do you really want to read more about Celine Dion? Exactly), the boys sold out a gig in Madison Square Garden in less than a minute!

Madison Square Garden is the third largest venue in the world! This sell-out sets a record for the venue. If they sell out Madison Square Garden that quickly, how fast do they sell out The Staples Center? In a blink!?
