Secrets Up for Auction

Stop the Press: New fundraising idea. Reuters News agency reports that singer Carly Simon is willing to finally reveal who the mysterious subject of her 1972 mega-hit “You’re So Vain” is to raise money for charity but to only one person for a winning bid of $US50,000.

NBC Sports President Dick Ebersol says he’s prepared to pay $50,000 to learn the secret.

However, Ebersol announced on NBC’s “Today Show” that he has to sign a confidentiality agreement before Simon spills the beans.

Simon, aged 58, offered to reveal the inspiration in order to raise money for a Martha’s Vineyard charity.

Past speculation about the man behind the song included Warren Beatty, whom Simon dated, ex-husband James Taylor and Mick Jagger, who sang backup on the song.

Put on your thinking caps…there must be some Aussie secrets that can be sold at charity auctions in Australia!
