Lady Gaga signs wheelchair for young fan

LADY GAGA took time out from her world tour to meet a young spina bifida sufferer and even signed his customised wheelchair backstage at her recent show in Ireland.

The pop superstar performed in Dublin, Ireland earlier this month (Sep12) and six-year-old Oran Murphy was in the audience to see his idol.

A member of Gaga's entourage spotted Murphy and later told the youngster and his mother, Laura Rossborough, that the Poker Face hitmaker had arranged a surprise backstage visit for him.

Gaga chatted to Murphy, posed for photographs, and signed his chair, which has been customised with the singer's Born This Way logo on both wheels.

Rossborough tells the BBC, "His favorite picture is the Born This Way album cover. He is a really happy wee (little) boy and he likes to say that he was 'born this way' so it seemed appropriate to get it put on the chair... I couldn't believe when (she) said she would see us. Oran was so excited."

The youngster adds, "I was shaking, it was so exciting. She really liked my wheels and I asked her if she would sign them. She said yes and wrote Lady Gaga on them... She gave me a big hug and a kiss."
