For About $2M, You Can Own a Piece of Beyoncé History
There are two and a half hours of unedited, never-before-seen Beyoncé footage up for grabs, and if you want to see it, it will cost you—millions. London-based auction house Ted Owen & Co. is selling the ultimate Beyoncé boxed set, which is slated to go for anywhere between $2 and $3.8 million. Yep, 12 Betacam videotapes with unreleased footage dating back to 1992 (circa Queen Bey fronting the group Girls Tyme) can be yours by the auction's end on January 10, 2017.
If the price isn't right for you, here's the silver lining: The auction house released a two-minute preview of the archives for free. In the short clip, you're treated to the throwback performances of the hip-hop group, which Ted Owen & Co. calls "original footage used to product Beyoncé's first music video, lost for twenty years." The recently unearthed tapes are currently up for sale in a closed auction, but if you don't have that kind of spare change, check out the free preview below.
