If you thought Lady Gaga would be recovering from her hip surgery like any other citizen — well, you obviously haven’t been paying enough attention.

After laying low for a few weeks to recover, the perpetually surprising singer rolled out her latest accessory — literally. She wheeled out of her N.Y.C. hotel (see the pic here) in a 24-karat gold-plated wheelchair created for her by jewelry designer Ken Borochov from Mordekai, whom she’d previously tapped to create a gold claw for her fragrance launch.

The chair features a tufted leather seat and a removable canopy, which is why Borochov said in a statement, “I was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the Chariot, a chair fit only for a queen.”

Though Gaga considers herself a trailblazer, she’s not the first star this year to make a style statement out of her injury.

At the 2013 Oscars in February, Kristen Stewart added a pair of crutches to her Reem Acra gown, then completed the avant-garde look by wearing one Bloch flat on her injured foot and a Jimmy Choo heel on the other.

And Demi Lovato refused to let her cast keep her from looking cute last month, bedazzling it with funky studs to really dress the look up for London Fashion Week.

Tell us: What do you think of Gaga’s latest look?

OMGOSH!! What a waste of money, good money at that. Granted she can do with her money what she wants but I am on the frugal side so even if I had the money I would never do this!

This makes headlines the same day I receive news of a young 13 year old orphan being held hostage by a hospital in Kenya that will not release her until she pays a 900.00 medical bill for a life saving surgery. Tell me, why should Gaga be applauded for her style sense? Her blinged out wheelchair could pay this girls medical bill 10x and over. Bleck. Gaga’s lavish and self-indulgent lifestyle is nothing to model your life after.

Only if she gives the chair to an auction house so the money can go to a good charity.
