Lady GaGa may be the queen of avant-garde, but she obviously can’t take it as will as she dishes it out.
Case in point, Baby GaGa icecream, released by a London store and using actual women’s breast milk as a key ingredient. GaGa’s lawyers are apparently furious, initially demanding that the parlour cease production and sale of the stuff, which was taken off the menu after health concerns last week. They’re now threatening legal action, which at GaGa’s economic level, likely involves at least nine of the ten plagues.
But owner Matt O’Connor isn’t going down without a fight. “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?” he’s said on record, as well as claiming that GaGa has no rights to anything, especially seeing as she cribs from the best of them, including Madonna for her new womb-inspired hit, ‘Born This Way’.
“For Lady Gaga to accuse us of stealing her image is laughable when you consider how much she has borrowed from popular culture to create her look and music,” says O’Connor.
GaGa has allegedly claimed that the frozen treat is “detrimental” to her image as it is “deliberately provocative and, to many people, nausea-inducing”, unlike her meat dress, amniotic Grammy sac or recent Terry Richardson shoot, which were all good, clean-cut fun.
