Lady Gaga's teacup up for auction
A teacup that was used by pop star Lady Gaga is being auctioned in Japan at a charity event.
The highest bid so far has exceeded US$50,000 (RM151,625) and is continuing to rise.
Lady Gaga had used the china cup and saucer at a press conference in Tokyo last year - three months after the earthquake and tsunami disaster that struck Japan.
She told journalists at the time that the cup, marked with her lipstick and the message "We pray for Japan", would be auctioned later.
The cup was put on Yahoo! Japan Auctions on Monday, with the starting price of one yen.
The auction will close on Sunday afternoon.
