Lady Gaga is outraged at a London based ice cream parlor for naming a flavor of ice-cream after her name. The ice-cream, made of human breast milk, has been named Baby Gaga and attempts to take advantage of the singer’s fame. She has threatened the owners of the ice-cream parlor of legal action if they continued it.
Her lawyers have already dispatched an official letter to the owner, Matt O’Connor at London’s Covent Garden, making clear that they have to think of another name for the flavor if they wished to carry on producing it.
Gaga’s lawyers also blame the owners of misusing the singer’s name to promote something that might be unacceptable to many, owing to its unusual chief ingredient and health issues that might arise due to its consumption. Human breast milk is feared to have viruses that might lead to hepatitis.
The store owners, however, justified their use of the name by stating that the association is with an infant’s first words as they learn how to speak and not with Lady Gaga. They are optimistic that they will win the case easily, accusing Lady Gaga of copying a lot from pop culture to devise her own image.
