Lady Gaga unveils dolls in Japan
Lady Gaga has been replicated - in doll form.
The one-of-a-kind pop star unveiled life-size dolls in her likeness, dressed in her flamboyant costumes, at an event in Tokyo, Japan. Pressing against the doll's chest allows the owner to hear Lady Gaga music and messages.
Gaga said she was honoured to have replicas of herself.
Japanese industrial and design companies teamed with her record label to create the Gagadoll, inspired by her new ARTPOP album. They are prototypes not yet available for sale.
At the news conference, Gaga made her grand entrance wearing a red plaid jumpsuit and wrapped in coils.
Gaga is participating in a charity auction to benefit the 2011 earthquake and tsunami victims. She's hoping that one of two Gaga-styled Hello Kitty dolls will raise a lot of money for the cause.
