The 'Bad Romance' star's drinking vessel attracted 1,300 bids in Japan this week as it was sold for charity.

Lady Gaga's teacup and saucer - which she sipped from during a Tokyo press conference in June last year - has been sold for £47,000 after it went up for auction in Japan this week.

The 'Marry The Night' singer's blue and white items featured the words "We Pray For Japan" on the side and attracted 1,300 bids when they went on sale.

The auction was put on in order to raise funds for artists who suffered following the tsunami that hit the country back in March 2011.

The cup was used by a green haired Gaga as she spoke during an MTV conference to promote the music channel's Music For Japan event.

Other items which fetched impressive amounts on the day included a Kawai crystal piano used by Yoshiki of the band Japan X - which sold for £85,413.

Meanwhile, the singer is currently on her worldwide 'Born This Way Ball' tour and will head to Tokyo later this week to perform three consecutive nights in the city.

The star will also be heading to the UK later this year to perform three dates including two headline shows at Twickenham stadium.
