Gaga For Lady Gaga! Singer's teacup & saucer sell for £46.5k

A teacup and saucer used just once by Lady Gaga has sold for a staggering £46.5k at an auction in Japan.

Attracting more than 1,300 bids from fans of the pop diva in a week-long auction, when the hammer finally came down yesterday afternoon, the cup and saucer had drawn bids reaching an impressive six million yen.

The china cup, which the U.S. singer sipped tea from during a Tokyo press conference in June 2011, was sold to raise money for artists who suffered following the tsunami that hit Japan in March last year. The massive natural disaster ravaged a large stretch of Japan's coastline, leaving 19,000 dead on Japan's North East coast and leaving many more homeless and destitute.

The Born This Way singer used the cup at an event organised by MTV to promote the music channel's Music For Japan event, organised to aid victims of the tsunami. Lady Gaga told reporters at the time that she would auction the cup, marked with her lipstick and bearing the Japanese message 'We pray for Japan' along with the star's autograph.

All the money raised will be used to help young Japanese artists who want to study in the United States. The teacup was one of a number of items being sold to raise money for those affected by Japan's worst post-war calamity, and was the second most expensive lot.

The top-priced item was a Kawai crystal piano used by Yoshiki of rock band Japan X, which went for £85,413 (11,001,000 yen).

As well as the high number of lives the natural disaster claimed, it also sparked the world's worst nuclear accident since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, leading to a dramatic fall in number of tourists visiting the country.

Lady Gaga visited Japan twice after the disaster and called on tourists from around the world to follow suit. The singer, who recently split from The Vampire Diaries actor Taylor Kinney, is due back in Japan this week as part of an Asian tour.
