Lady Gaga Fingernail Sells for $13K In Online Auction [PHOTOS]
A bedazzled fingernail worn by Lady Gaga has sold for $13K at an online auction. The elaborate black-and-gold acrylic fingernail flew off the superstar's hand during a performance in Dublin, Ireland last year and was later found by an event crewmember who put it up for auction at ArtFact.com. The seller also included a staff handbook from the arena, an event crew wristband from the show, a tour shirt and a letter that explains how he discovered the nail. The letter reads:
"I noticed an object on the floor of the stage, which at first I thought was a guitar plectrum. When I picked it up, I saw it was an acrylic nail," it reads. That's a sharp eye for a very lucky crew worker who now has quite a bit more money.
The exact number of bids remains unknown, but it's safe to say the nail created quite a stir before being snatched up for thirteen thousand dollars.
"This piece of Lady Gaga's personal style could appeal to both passionate collectors of pop culture relics or one of Gaga's Monsters," Rob Weisberg, CEO of ArtFact said in a statement about Gaga's fingernail.
