Lady Gaga threw a huge tantrum after losing her favorite teacup.
The 'Poker Face' singer, who refuses to drink from any other cup and saucer, was furious when she accidentally left it at the Metropolitan Hotel's restaurant in London.
After realizing her error she sent a taxi on a £35 round trip from her suite at Blakes Hotel to collect the blue flowered china cup.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "She kicked up a fuss and demanded someone get her cup and saucer back.
"She wouldn't drink out of anything else. It just looked like any other cup and saucer to me and said 'Made in China' on the bottom. It seemed a lot of fuss over nothing."
It is unknown why the 23-year-old singer takes the cup with her everywhere, or where her obsession with crockery comes from.
The blonde star appeared on BBC TV talk show 'Friday Night with Jonathan Ross' drinking ginger tea from the same cup over the weekend (17.04.09).
A spokesman for the singer said: "Lady Gaga does not want to reveal anything about the teacup itself, but drinking ginger tea is very good for singers."
