Lady Gaga Gets A 24-Karat Gold Plated Wheelchair
Lady Gaga has been out and about over the last couple of days, but she’s not exactly looking fit as a fiddle. The 26-year-old singer recently was forced to cancel tour dates after determining she had synovitis and a hip tear. Taking her injury in stride, the singer opted to create a swanky gold and black wheelchair to move about with ease and finesse.
According to MTV, designer Ken Borochov got a call from Gaga, who asked him to put together the signature piece. The designer has totally worked with the pop singer in the past, but putting together a fancy schmancy wheelchair was certainly a challenge. However, Gaga’s new ride looks incredible, and yes, the wheels and hardware are 24-Karat gold plated. It’s a beautiful design that Borochov has dubbed “The Chariot.”
The above photo is brought to fans courtesy of famous photographer Terry Richardson, who is both Lady Gaga’s friend and has also been putting together a documentary based on the singer. Richardson posted some photos from a recent New York City adventure to his blog Terry’s Diary on Tuesday, which also happens to show off Mama Monster’s wheelchair. After having surgery, Lady Gaga has several long months of recovery ahead of her, but on the bright side, at least she gets a fun accessory out of the injury.
