The mystery buyer who paid $13,800 at auction last week for Madonna's leather bra and panties outfit has been identified. His name is Brian McFarland, 35, reports the New York Post. "I'm proud to have it," the Grand Island, Neb., resident told the paper. "I'm going to display it, and any of my friends who want to see it can come on by." McFarland plays bass in a heavy metal band. He calls himself a longtime Madonna fan, which is why he anted up the money for the provocative item. Leland's, a sports memorabilia auction house, handled the sale. "(My wife) thinks I'm a little crazy," McFarland said about his purchase. "She just kind of grins and bears it."
