Lady Gaga recently underwent hip surgery. But rather than roll in a regular old wheelchair like a regular old person, the constant spectacle commissioned an ultra-swanky custom ride which, the Daily Beast reports, contains about $2,600 worth of solid gold.

The chair, which is functional and can even fully recline, has a leather seat and was, thankfully, immortalized in this photo by Terry Richardson. It was designed by jewelry designer Ken Borochov, who called it a "huge undertaking." It also features an overhang to keep the singer safe from the elements. She has named the chair "Emma," according to her Instagram account.

Gaga sustained a tear in her right hip, which required extensive surger and forced her to cancel her tour.
