A cup and the brand of lipstick from the lips of Lady Gaga was auctioned online by for $75,000, for the victims of the Japan tsunami in 2011.
The cup was used by the 26-year-old diva, during a press conference in Tokyo in June last year, when she visited Japan to participate in several initiatives to help those affected by the disaster in the northeast. The small white mug with blue and gold stripes came out through an auction website on April 29, with a starting price of a penny. In eight days, the value raised to $75,000.
In addition to the cup, there is a mark of her lips. The cup is signed by Lady Gaga with a Japanese phrase “Pray for Japan”. The money raised will be donated to an organization founded by the government and various companies in EU and will be used for a program of scholarships for young Japanese Americans in the country.
Last June, Lady Gaga used her visit to Japan to participate in a charity gala and design, along with other celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Gwyneth Paltrow and Orlando Bloom.
