Lady Gaga was amongst the music fans attending an auction of Michael Jackson memorabilia over the weekend, snapping up 55 items at the sale.

The US sale took place at Julien's Auctions on Sunday, December 2 and saw a host of Jackson's most iconic items available including the 'Bad' jacket and a pair of white spangled gloves. Tweeting about the items of clothing she had bought at the auction, Gaga wrote: "The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived & expertly cared for in the spirit & love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, & fans worldwide."

Gaga also posted a picture of herself holding a paddle with the number 462 written on it alongside a quote of Jackson's which reads: “Study the greats and become greater.”

It is not clear which items Gaga bought at the auction but it is reported that the jacket Jackson wore on his Bad tour was sold to a mystery bidder for £150,000, while two of Jacksons gloves also sold for more than £60,000 each. The auction was organised by Jackson's costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush and raised more than $5 million for a variety of charities, including Guide Dogs of America.

Lady Gaga will release a new album titled 'ARTPOP' in 2013, and recently revealed that she has over 50 songs written for the record.
