‘Baby Gaga’ is back
By Darren Wilson
It’s back! The ‘Baby Gaga’ ice cream which was taken off the market two weeks ago because of health concerns has been approved by the British Health Council.
Matt O’Connor, the owner of the store selling the ice cream, had said from the start that the breast milk had been thoroughly tested and that any donors are held to the same standard used to screen blood donors and members of breast milk banks.
Despite having the ice cream approved, the store faces another problem with its choice of name for the ice cream, the ‘Baby Gaga’, leading Lady Gaga herself to pursue legal action against the shop.
Lady Gaga’s attorney has sent a letter to the shop to tell them to stop using the Baby Gaga name immediately. The letter accuses the store of ‘cashing in on her name and image’, to which owner O’Connor responded “She claims we have ‘ridden the coattails’ of her reputation. As someone who has plagiarised and recycled, on an industrial scale, the entire back catalogue of pop-culture to create her look, music and videos, she might want to re-consider this allegation.”
But with the possibility of a massive lawsuit hanging over the store it may mean that their famous ice cream will have to be sold under a different name.
