A skateboard used by US singer Olivia Rodrigo for her music video Bad Idea Right? is one of the items being auctioned for charity ahead of this year’s Grammy Awards.

The charity auction is being held at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on February 4, preceding the 66th annual awards ceremony.

More than 50 one-of-a-kind instruments, outfits, personal items and memorabilia from some of the world’s biggest musicians – including Sir Paul McCartney and Lionel Richie – have been donated for the auction.
