Vanity Fair’s Naked Lady Gaga Drawing Fetches $30,000

Remember that Lady Gaga Vanity Fair auction we told you about earlier this month? Well it’s over, and the grand prize — a drawing of a naked Gaga by Tony Bennett — fetched a whopping $30,000.

Before you’re all, “wow someone is a creeper,” remember, all the benefits went to Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation and Bennett’s Exploring The Arts charities.

The auction was a boon for the foundations; the total donation from the Vanity Fair pieces was $46,261.
