Out of all the insane things that can be associated with Lady Gaga … ice cream made of breast milk? That ranks pretty high up there. Anyway, an ice cream shop in London released a flavor of ice cream called Baby Gaga made from real breast milk, and now Gaga is suing them for associating her name with something weird and outlandish, which is soooooo the opposite of Gaga, amirite?
Gaga’s attorneys at the law firm of Mishcon de Reya sent the owners a legal letter asking them to stop using the name ‘Gaga’ in their ice cream, calling their concoction “deliberately provocative and, to many people, nausea-inducing.” The singer’s lawyers are accusing Icecreamists owner Matt O’Connor of trying to promote his ice cream by linking it to her name, stating, “The references you are making to Lady Gaga are thus clearly deliberate and intended to take advantage of her reputation and good will. Associating the Lady Gaga mark with a food product which may be unsafe for human consumption (owing to the risk of it carrying such viruses as hepatitis) is also highly detrimental.” SOURCE
That’s right, let this be a lesson to all you ice cream maker people out there (what’s the job title for something like that anyway?): Don’t steal the name that Gaga stole from a Queen song (Radio Ga Ga) that no one really remembers, okay? And certainly don’t associate it with titty cream, that’s just the insane craziness that Gaga doesn’t want tied to her name. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go watch the music she made where she gives birth to a machine gun!
