Lady Gaga commissioned a 24 carat gold plated wheelchair to cart her ass around


If it were just two weeks later I would think this was an April Fool’s joke, but it’s not and this happened. Lady Gaga underwent hip surgery last month after tearing part of her hip joint. Prior to that she canceled her scheduled tour, citing chronic pain and synovitis, which is severe joint inflammation. Now that Gaga is convalescing she’s not riding around in one of those awesome Dean Kamen robotic wheelchairs that can go up stairs (which were discontinued, but you know she could get one if she tried), she isn’t even riding around in a motorized wheelchair. No, Gaga has commissioned a 24 carat gold manual wheelchair with a tufted leather seat that would look tacky at a mafia grandmother’s house. Because why not? It’s even got a little leather sun umbrella, like the stroller that it is. Gaga isn’t going to ride in transportation that she has to drive herself, how gauche!

Here’s more from the designer, thanks to E! Online:

After undergoing hip surgery last month, the singer turned to designer Ken Borochov of luxury label Mordekai to create a custom wheelchair. And Borochov certainly didn’t disappoint, creating a head-turning 24-karat gold plated chair that will have Gaga riding out her recovery in style!

“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,” the designer explained in a statement.

So what exactly went into creating this pop queen’s new ride? For an edgy yet durable look, Burachov styled the tufted leather seats to look like a motorcycle jacket and added some seriously stylish spoke rims that are sure to mesmerize onlookers as Gaga wheels her way through town. But his masterpiece is just as functional as it is fabulous; it features a removable canopy should Mother Monster require a little shade, and even reclines should she start to feel fatigued. She is recovering after all!

This isn’t the first head-turning piece Borochov’s created for Lady Gaga. He’s designed a couple of crowns for the star’s performances, as well as the infamous gold claw she wore to launch her Fame fragrance at Harrods in London. But we’d say the Chariot ranks as one of his fiercest accessories yet!

I guess it’s Gaga’s money, it’s her prerogative. All I can think of when I see Gaga now is that ridiculous rant she went on in court against her ex-assistant. She is so beyond entitled it’s astounding. She also seems to think that perv creeper Terry Richardson is some kind of amazing celebrity artiste, probably just as she thinks about herself. Uncle Terry took that portrait of Gaga in her chair, Kaiser found it for me on his website.

I just had a really gross thought looking at this photo. Do you think Gaga and Uncle Terry are banging? There are not enough “ewwwwws” to accompany that. There are also rumors that Gaga is about to marry her boyfriend, actor Taylor Kinney. I don’t think of her as the faithful type, so it’s not like those two possibilities rule each other out.

    That is such a waste of money it should be a sin.

  2. I.want.shoes says:

    We will all point and laugh the day Gaga goes broke.

  3. Eleonor says:

    Well she has declared herself Queen of Universe after all…

  4. HotPockets says:

    “Do you think Gaga and Uncle Terry are banging?”

    Uncle TerryPedo Bangs everyone. Teenagers, Jared Leto, La Lohan, 15 year old girls and probably Kate Upton. He is a sexual predator and deviant why anyone gives him photography gigs is beyond my understanding. When will the entertainment industry stop embracing pedophiles and perverts? The only reason Terry skates by is because he pays people off to be quiet, not to mention all his connections and celebrity friends.

    Anyways, of course Lady Gaga spent that kind of cash on a wheel chair, anything for her artistic well being. (rolls eyes).

  5. Beka says:

    Gosh! Feels like decades since I heard about this “classy woman”. But being honest, is not like I was looking for news about her.

  6. Reece says:

    I would have thought her far more interesting if that had been a Jazzy and she’d put on old lady clothes.

  7. lady mary. says:

    Poor Taylor kinney ,is he aware what he is getting into

  8. MollyB says:

    And to think there are children in this world going hungry, like Apple and Moses Martin.

  9. epiphany says:

    Along with Bieber, Miley, and the Kartrashians, I can’t wait for the day this idiot’s 15 minutes are up. So tired of people famous for being famous, (and Auto-tuning) and not because of genuine talent.

  10. marie says:

    she’s a top offender on my list of “People I’d like to Punch”

  11. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    What an ass she is.

  12. Sam says:

    And it’s not even motorized. Which means, unless she’s pumping her own arms to move it (and I think she isn’t), some poor assistant/work monkey is having to push that damn thing around – and 24k gold isn’t light! But what does she care?

  13. littlestar says:

    I’m with you Celebitchy. I’ve always enjoyed Gaga’s music but I was starting to get tired of her ridiculous costumes etc. My turning point of being completely over Gaga was her tirade against her ex-assistant. She’s nothing but a fraud in my eyes now.

  14. gg says:

    Hm, funny, everybody I know that undergoes hip surgery is forced to walk on it very quickly post surgery to aid recovery and get strong again. Lying around in a wheelchair? Nobody normal is allowed to do this by their doctor.

  15. Eileen says:

    My 12 year old uses a wheelchair and I honestly think he would be terrified of that contraption! It looks like a cross between a Victorian wheelchair/hearse! I’ll stick with his electric blue one,which took over 6 months to get waiting on insurance–$ talks

  16. mar says:

    why do I despise her lately??????

  17. dcypher1 says:

    she is so banging uncle terry u can tell so gross.

  18. EscapedConvent says:

    And I didn’t think she could get any more repulsive.

    So she could spend money on gold spokes, but not on a motor for her stroller? Of course not! Someone has to push her!

    I don’t know why she stopped there. Wouldn’t it be more attention-grabbing if she were carried around on an old-school silk-cushioned Cleopatra-style litter? With some hot muscular dudes carrying her braindead ass around.

  19. Faye says:

    Of course it’s her money to spend as she wishes, and it’s not as if I never buy things that are frivolous, but a gold wheelchair — for real? How about donating the money to a charity for disabled people who are confined to a wheelchair; think of what a statement that would be.

    This just shows what a self-obsessed creature this woman is. Whose mind goes to “gold wheelchair” when you have surgery? I had to have eye surgery a few years ago, and although it wasn’t necessarily serious, I was terrified my eyesight would be affected. When I recovered the first thing I did was make a donation to a charity for the blind, because I was so grateful for my sight. Guess I should have commissioned platinum sunglasses instead.

    • Jazz Fabulous says:

      Exactly! Anyway, speaking of wheelchairs, remember when she ripped off Bette Midler’s stage act–dressing up as a mermaid and singing in a wheelchair onstage? Some disability rights groups ripped Lady Caca a new hole for bringing that to another new low.

  20. Jazz Fabulous says:

    I don’t care what people do with their money. But that being said, Lady Caca is such a joke, and this news just makes me hate her even more. What a pretentious twat.

  21. elceibeno08 says:

    I have head that some celebrities have ordered gold toilets and diamond -encrusted iphone covers.

  22. Devon says:

    I get why she has the wheelchair, but I had the same surgery (albeit with a few more complications thrown in) and my doctors encouraged me to be up on crutches as much as possible. She’s in great shape but she doesn’t want both legs to atrophy. It was my right hip as well and over a year later, I’m still not back to the same level of muscle tone as my left leg. It’s almost there, with a lot of hard work, but not quite.

    And that photo of her almost crossing her legs? It makes me squirm so much because that’s a HUGE no no for someone who’s had that surgery!

  23. logan says:

    I would have been more impressed if she had donated 100 regular wheel chairs to a needy cause, like veterans.

  24. Jenn says:

    Too much time on her hands, too much money on her hands, and just looking for attention is all! She looks ridiculous!

  25. erika says:

    what a sick waste of $$$ and earthly resources…really. and i can’t pin why but sort of an insult to people who are actually in need of their wheelchair, like they have no choice.

    and i can tell by the looks of it that’s a sh**ty designed ‘wheelchair’. it’s pure fashion and not function.

    she used to have me at attention always, i liked her music, but her personal antics have grossed me out, 1. terry 2.lindsay and 3. psycho rant against her assistant..

    why do celebs always treat their assistants like sh**t? why?

    • Jarredsgirl says:

      Erika I have a theory why celebs treat their assistants like shit:

      When you become a celeb, you are marketed as a ‘star’. You are shown to the world in the context of being ‘somebody special’ & ‘amazing’ and suddenly all these people believe the marketing and think you’re above them (fans). But as a celeb, you know the truth. You know that it is just marketing and you know how much work goes into producing this particular image. Most of all, you know that you are not really any better than anybody else and that it’s all a fake construct. (Can you imagine? People constantly coming up to you, gushing over you and in the back of your head, you know it’s all just marketing). And that makes you grumpy and therefore, a c-u-next-tuesday, but you can’t take it out on your fans, the fashion designers, the hair and makeup team etc, the journalists. So you take it out on your personal assistant, the one person in your team who is easily replacable and will follow you everywhere.

      This is why it’s so funny when celebs get so egotistical. They actually believe the hype that was created as a tool for them to sell more X (whatever, songs, clothes, movies etc). Dum-de-dum-de-dum!

  26. Stubbylove says:

    She’s a skag. That last pic made me throw up a bit.

  27. TrustMeOnThis says:

    Just like Larry Flynt’s!
    Actually, his is a lot less tacky.

  28. Gemini08 says:

    You know what? If I had to be relegated to a wheelchair for whatever reason (God forbid), and had the money, I would want a customized blinged out one too. Why not? She’s rich she can afford it. But it’s Gaga and haters gonna hate!

  29. Decloo says:

    Man, look at the size of her foot!

  30. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Exactly epiphany and others; does anyone really believe it’s about the “music” and her “fans”; she’s a brittle little mediocre narcissist that vaunted to fame,all her juvenile political ramblings about gay rights,the environment,etc. are just ways to keep her in the limelight and sell her crappy drivel. Why not donate that money to organizations helping syrian refugees or an Aids foundation?

  31. Ryan says:

    I love the juxtaposition of the tacky laptop stickers and tacky Gaga.

  32. Beatriz says:

    I’m inclined to believe she didn’t have a hip surgery, but rather plastic surgery. If the story about her getting married is true (and it comes from Lady Starlight, not just any source), maybe she wanted to do some tweaking or whatever to look “great” on her day. Dunno, there’s just some things that don’t add up.

  33. Jayna says:

    Actually, I believe Gaga is very faithful when in a committed relationship. I just don’t get what that down-to-earth hunk from Chicago Fire sees in her.

  34. JRenee says:

    Too bad she allows talent to take a backseat to showmanship…

  35. jacquie109 says:

    Well I guess she has to spend her money somehow (eye roll)

  36. TalkyTina says:

    Like the chair isn’t bad enough, she hangs around that child molester!!!
    There is NO excuse for that in my eyes.
    Disgusting idiot!

  37. Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

    She really is ugly inside AND out.

  38. Jarredsgirl says:

    Ugh. This ‘woman’ is disgusting. She can’t just have a normal wheelchair, no no. Not good enough for Gag!

    I can’t stop thinking of the court case either. Her ego disgusts me. You would think she has the talent of Mariah Carey. Somebody needs to tell her she is mediocre at best… It’s going to be real painful [for her] when her 15 minutes finish up. Can you imagine?? Breakdown!!

  39. Jarredsgirl says:

  40. Tania says:

    What a total moron. I can’t stand her and will no longer listen to her music.

  41. Deeana says:

    Gaga did not have her hip replaced. She had a torn muscle repaired. In addition to the muscle tear she was diagnosed with synovitis. This is an inflammation of the lining of a joint capsule. It is known to be very painful.

    Unlike the recovery from a hip replacement, which encourages early weight bearing as tolerated, the recovery from either a muscle repair or synovitis would not include early weight bearing.

    This is an entirely different surgery. And she may be using a wheelchair for some time to come.

    I had tickets for one of the cancelled concerts. I was taking my grandchildren and they were so excited.
    Oh well…maybe next year.

  42. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    I started to type a comment, but, honestly, I am lost for words. She is simply revolting.

  43. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Is it any worse than Guy Caballero doing the wheelchair thing ‘for respect’? Ha, I love that guy.

  44. henderswife says:

    I just recently started listening to Lady Gaga’s music. I do find her over the top and attention seeking but I saw a video of her visiting a fan backstage that had very sever medical disabilities. Gaga seemed very genuine with her and made her feel like she was the only person in the room. She even repeatedly told people to back off b/c they were stealing the girl’s moment. I have a daughter like this girl so it really touched my heart to see her being so kind to her. However, I find Gaga’s wheelchair ri-god-damn-diculous!
