The 'Born This Way' star promises to "expertly" care for the pieces after sale in California.

Lady Gaga has bought 55 items from an auction of Michael Jackson memorabilia in California.

The auction of pieces belonging to the late singer's long-time costume designer, Michael Bush, included the 'Bad' tour jacket the star wore on the road and two of his hand-sewn Swarovski crystal gloves.

It is not known what items Lady Gaga purchased, but she told her Twitter followers that she intended to look after her collection.

Taking to Twitter from South Africa, where she is currently performing on her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour, Lady Gaga said: "The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived & expertly cared for in the spirit & love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, & fans worldwide."

The jacket Michael wore during his 'Bad' tour far exceeded its listing price, eventually selling for $240,000, while the two Swarovski crystal gloves both fetched more than $100,000.
