LONDON (AP) _ One of Madonna's eye-popping conical bras sold for $21,150 on Thursday at a pop memorabilia auction, snapped up by a Chilean fashion museum.

The memorable fashion statement, a fixture of the pop diva's 1990 Blond Ambition Tour, rivaled a page of handwritten lyrics by Beatles legend Paul McCartney, which was bought by an unidentified private collector for $29,960, Christie's auction house said.

The auction featured more than 200 pieces of memorabilia, including an autographed letter sent by John Lennon to a fan and a suit worn on stage by Eric Clapton.

The Museum of Fashion and Textiles in Santiago, Chile, emerged the winner of unexpectedly high bidding for Madonna's black and fuchsia Jean-Paul Gaultier bra. A Christie's spokeswoman said the bra was expected to fetch only $4,500.

The seller, who was not identified, won the bra in a British radio contest, the spokeswoman said on customary condition of anonymity.
