Lady Gaga Auctions Costume for Haiti

— February 9, 2010 — Social Good
The amazing artist we all know and love, Lady Gaga, auctions her bedazzled costume for charity. Her Gary Card-designed skeleton corset will be auctioned off on the website Charity Buzz. The money raised will go to Oxfam International, which will benefit the victims of Haiti’s terrible earthquake.

So, somewhere out there is a lucky somebody who will get to own a piece of genuine Gaga memorabilia, but they also get to make a difference. The auction’s write-up also includes a few juicy tidbits about Gaga’s childhood. For instance, did you know that as a child little Gaga greeted new babysitters in nothing but her birthday suit?
