Earlier this week, Gaga took to Twitter to tell fans of her plan to help the relief efforts, in a post which read: ‘I Designed a Japan Prayer Bracelet. Buy It/Donate here and ALL proceeds will go to Tsunami Relief Efforts. Go Monsters.’

And the eccentric star – who has totted up the amazing $250,000 total in just 48-hours – is showing no sign of stopping.

Urging fans to purchase the sleek $5 red and white band – of which 100 per cent of the proceeds go directly to Japan relief funds – from her website, the star Tweeted: ‘It’s important we help.’
