A platinum album entitled "Madonna," one of a collection of art and memorabilia from pop star Madonna’s old roommate, that a St. Petersburg firm will auction, is shown Tuesday Jan. 21, 2014 in St. Petersburg, Fla. Martin Burgoyne was a British-born artist who was Madonna’s roommate in Manhattan and a key figure in her career before she became famous. Burgoyne died of AIDS in 1986. His parents are auctioning off a collection that is like a 1980's time capsule. It includes art from Andy Warhol and Keith Haring and pencil drawings for the cover of Madonna's "Burning Up” album, along with several photos of a young Madonna before she became famous. The auction will take place Feb. 9, 2014. (AP Photo/Chris O'Meara) less
