At least it wasn't a meat suit. The London Sun (via the Daily Mail) claims Lady Gaga bought boyfriend Taylor Kinney a $55,000, circle-covered crocodile backpack designed by Damien Hirst for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's label The Row. The ostensible gift was for the "Chicago Fire" actor's 32nd birthday this month.
"Taylor loves his backpacks," says a source, "so she wanted to get him a real one-of-a-kind -- only 12 have been made." Lady G also apparently arranged to fly his family to the Windy City for a visit.
"Gaga knows Taylor takes his birthday really seriously," adds the insider, "but it's always difficult for her to get him something because he doesn't like fast cars, big houses or smart suits."
So presenting a luxury item-eschewing guy with an ostentatious backpack that's an invitation for muggers? Nailed it.
