A teacup and saucer used by Lady Gaga sold for more than $75,000 at auction on Monday. Gaga used the cup at a news conference in Tokyo after the tsunami in March 2011.
The cup was kissed with her lipstick, autographed and marked “We pray for Japan”. All the proceeds will help Japanese students who want to study in the United States.
Payment was required before the winning bid could be confirmed. The cup and saucer were brought in the second highest bid for the charity. The largest was for a crystal piano used by a Japanese rock star.
