Lady GaGa has designer Ken Borochov create a 24-carat gold wheelchair

Lady GaGa's an extravagant, eccentric — some might even say excessive — popstar, but her new mode of transport has managed to surpass even the egg vessel. GaGa's commissioned a New York designer to create a golden wheelchair.

GaGa had surgery last month to repair a labral tear and is now recuperating under strict rest orders. Since she needs a way of getting around, the eccentric popstar has decided that only a bejewelled, sparkly and leather-lined chair will do.

The designer in question is Ken Borochov, who has named this particular monstrosity The Chariot and plated it in 24-carat gold. It even comes with a removable leather canopy, a special leg-rest and Wisconsin-made spoke rim wheels. If GaGa's feeling sleepy during the day, she can recline the seat back and power-nap.

"I certainly wasn't expecting that phone call," Ken Borochov revealed to the New York Post. "I 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."
