Of Course Lady Gaga’s Fingernail Sold For $12,000
Well, sh*t. And here I thought my bid of 48 cents was enough to take it down.
The acrylic fingernail was hand painted by Aya Fukuda and sold by a crew member who found it on stage cleaning after the show at Lady Gaga’s Born This Way concert in Dublin this past year. The man was able to cash in a cool $12K off of some buyer who I have to assume already purchased Madonna’s used tampons from a homeless man for a couple grand at some point in his life.
The auction was held on artifact.com, because honestly, when you think of historic artifacts, Lady Gaga’s discarded fingernail has to rank up there with the Magna Carta and the Lost Ark of the Covenant.
