Lady Gaga is rolling around in an exclusively designed gold plated wheelchair. AREN’T WE FANCY? Gaga injured herself badly enough to have to stay off of her feet. (She has a labral tear of the right hip and synovitis, severe inflammation of the joints.) She last tweeted a photo of a normal wheelchair with, “This is Emma” so I guess this means Gaga and Emma broke up.
MTV details on this fancy-ass wheelchair:
We’ve received an exclusive scoop from the chair’s designer, Ken Borochov, that he was commissioned specifically by Lady Gaga herself to design the wheelchair. Ken is the creative force behind MORDEKAI, and has designed pieces for Mama Monster in the past, but nonetheless, he was still surprised to get the call. “I certainly wasn’t expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the Chariot, a chair fit only for a queen,” Ken said in an official statement.
Logically, Ken looked first to a throne for his inspiration. He then fashioned the Chariot from tufted calf leather, inspired by classic motorcycle jackets, adding a removable leather canopy that we REALLY want to get a look at. The wheels and hardware are 24-Karat gold plated. Maybe the craziest detail of all of this, the whole business had to be completed in a single week! Well done, Ken Borochov, well done.
lololol “logically, Ken looked first to a throne for his inspiration” ahhhhh.
What upsets me most is that this photo was taken by her friend Terry Richardson. Why are we letting Terry Richardson out? He is one of the most disgusting human beings on the planet and yet celebrities around the world clamor to be his BFF. His photos are great but I’m pretty sure any kid with a DSLR and a lighting kit can achieve the same thing AND without sexually harassing anyone!
