GaGa Threatens To Sue Over Breast Milk Ice Cream
It's named 'Baby Gaga'...
Lady GaGa has threatened to sue the British makers of Baby Gaga ice cream unless they change the name.
The controversial breast milk ice cream was the brainchild of Icecreamists parlour in Covent Garden, who made the dessert by combining donated breast milk with vanilla pods and lemon zest.
But the Born This Way star’s lawyers have penned a harshly-worded letter to the store, claiming they have "ridden the coattails of her reputation" by using the name Baby Gaga.
Icecreamists owner Matt O'Connor defended his use of the term in an interview with The Guardian, and said he felt like he was "wielding two spoons engaged in hand-to-hand combat".
"A global superstar has taken umbrage at what she describes as a 'nausea-inducing' product. This from a woman with a penchant for wearing rotting cows' flesh,” he said of the singer’s controversial meat dress. “At least our customers are still alive when they contribute to our 'art'.
“How can she possibly claim ownership of the word 'gaga', which since the dawn of time has been one of the first discernable phrases to come from a baby's mouth?”
Lady GaGa will be pleased to hear that Westminster Council has now confiscated all stocks of the breast milk ice cream amid fears that it didn’t meet hygiene requirements.
