Demos from Lady Gaga’s early days will be up for bid in a new online auction, alongside handwritten lyrics, clothing and various ephemera from the likes of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Michael Jackson.

It’s all part of an expansive collection going under the gavel as the Rock & Roll Pop Culture Auction, starting on Wednesday at GottaHaveRockAndRoll.com. And for Gaga completists, there’s plenty to get excited about.

In total, six CDs of early recordings will be up for auction, including a pair of demo discs from her first days as Lady Gaga. One, from 2006 and complete with a handwritten track listing, features six songs (“Wonderful,” “Retrosexual,” “Rock Show,” “Spin You Around,” “Yay Ha” and “Oh Well”) and was donated by her then-manager Bob Leone. The second disc, also from ’06, is a single version of the song “Wonderful.”

The four other albums in the auction feature music recorded by Gaga when she was still going by her real name, Stefani Germanotta, and include a CDR (labeled “Stefani Germanotta, 2001″) with four songs, and three albums: Stefani, Red And Blue; Stefani Germanotta; and Words, which is credited to the “Stefani Germanotta Band.” A performance DVD, shot at the Cutting Room in New York, is also up for bid.

Bidding on all six CDs will start at $1,000. Two autographed items — an 11-by-14 photograph and a copy of Gaga’s The Fame album — are also up for auction, with opening bids starting at $100. That’s a pretty good deal, especially considering that bidding on a life-size Arnold Schwarzenegger-autographed T-800 prop from “T2: Judgment Day” begins at $79,000. And Arnie has never even had a hit record.

Lady GaGa wants to marry boyfriend Luc Carl in a British castle, according to reports.

The Bad Romance star is apparently planning a showbiz wedding of epic proportions to take place when her world tour returns to Blighty in December.

The Monster Ball Tour hits London’s O2 Arena on December 16 and 17. GaGa then has two months off before she goes back on the road in the States – the perfect time for a romantic winter wedding and honeymoon.

A member of her touring crew told The Sun: “Lady GaGa has told everyone she plans to get married. She has said she wants a fairytale wedding in a castle. We finish the European leg in London just before Christmas and the timing is perfect for the wedding.”

Speculation is already growing as to the scale of the nuptials – reports suggest she’s keen to marry in a castle in the north of England or Scotland, with Dita Von Teese jumping out of an enormous wedding cake.

GaGa and Luc, a heavy metal drummer, dated in 2005 but broke up when the star hit the big time. They recently reunited after she told anyone who’d listen that she still loved him. “I’ve never really loved anyone like I loved him,” the singer admitted earlier this year. “Or like I love him. That relationship really shaped me.”

The flamboyant star has long been a fan of the British way of life – she’s a big tea drinker and loves our traditional pubs, and earlier this week it was reported GaGa is considering buying a home in the UK.
