LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Madonna memorabilia including nude photographs of the Queen of Pop will go on sale in November at an auction that will also include some of her most famous outfits and some of her lyrics.

The Marilyn Monroe-inspired gown and jewellery that Madonna donned in her 1984 Material Girl music video will also be up for grabs, Beverly Hills-based Julien's Auctions said Tuesday.

Highest bidders will also be able to take home some of the many awards won by Madonna, as well as handwritten notes on concert choreography and working lyrics.

The personal and professional collection includes a day planner from 1988 in which Madonna jotted down notes on everything from dates with her then-husband Sean Penn to an appearance on Late Night With David Letterman.
