The Alexander McQueen‘s Armadillo boots Lady Gaga displayed on her Instagram page two days ago, that some fans described as “ugly” have been reported to have cost a whopping $295,000 and they were bought by her fiance, Taylor Jacks Kinney!
Lady Gaga posted a photograph of herself wearing just a swim suit proudly trying the shoes on and captioned it;
When a gift comes to you from Heaven photo by Taylor Kinney best fiancée ever
The pop star has been criticized for paying so much money for shoes that were made out of “sentient beings” like Armadillos. A fan wrote;
This is miserable. Killing sentient beings to tunr them into shoes is disgusting. And those shoes are ugly…
The shoes were expected to cost between $30,000 to $45,000 altogether but Taylor Jacks Kinney bought them at $295,000 for his fiance. Proceeds from the auction that the shoes were purchased are reportedly being donated to UNICEF‘s relief efforts in Nepal after the earthquake they experienced.
This is not the first time Taylor Kinney is showering Lady Gaga (real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) with expensive stuff (or should I say Expensive Shit like Wizkid?…lol). The engagement ring he gave to her last February was said to have been worth about $500,000!
