Lady Gaga Puts the Squeeze on Breast Milk Ice Cream

By Stephanie Rabiner, Esq. on March 15, 2011 1:08 PM

The last person one would ever expect to accuse an item of being distasteful and "nausea-inducing" is Lady Gaga. 

After all, she wears meat dresses and performs drenched in (hopefully) fake blood. But when it comes to someone cashing in on her provocative image, she's in it for the kill.

A U.K. ice cream parlor--The Icecreamists--made headlines when it began to sell Baby Gaga--a breast milk ice cream flavored with vanilla and lemon zest. Local officials confiscated the concoction, returning it only after it tested safe.

But while Baby Gaga may be safe it eat, it's still catching the ire of the Lady herself. Lady Gaga has put the mother's milk in jeopardy yet again--she's threatening to sue.

In an odd turn of events, Lady Gaga is accusing the parlor of promoting a nauseating and intentionally provocative product. When combined with the play on her name, her lawyer argues that it is clear that Baby Gaga is intended to capitalize on the pop star's image.

Yes, you read that right. Because Baby Gaga is disgusting and potentially carries diseases, it encroaches on Lady Gaga's carefully-crafted image.

Matt O'Conner, the ice cream's proprietor, is not taking the assault on his beloved Baby Gaga sitting down. He asserts that the name is based on the first noise a baby makes, reports Wenn, and has filed to register the name as a trademark. Vowing to fight for Baby Gaga's honor, he's also planning on taking action against the agency that insisted on ensuring the ice cream is safe for consumption.
