Lady Gaga's Golden Wheelchair
It's worth a fortune!

Trust Lady Gaga to make an injury a fashion statement!
Gags recently had surgery for a hip injury – she had a joint infection called synovitis – and her bestie/photographer Terry Richardson posted the above photo of Lady G post-surgery sitting in a very sqanky and VERY expensive gold wheelchair.
Gaga recently put the rest of her Born This Way Ball tour on hold because of the injury, and since the successful surgery she’s certainly been getting around in style!
A jewellery designer named Ken Borochov was hired to create the chair, which is made mostly from 24 carat gold. Yep. You heard me.
The fancy schmancy chair was designed and built within a week, with the help of manufacturers all over the United States.
The seat is made from black leather and a removable canopy to protect our poor Gags from the sun.
Not to mention the 1.5 ounces of pure gold built into it, making the approximate overall value $2,600. To put that in perspective, a normal wheelchair will set you back around $300-$500.
Wowza. Nobody does it like Gaga.
Has she gone too far?
