Lady Gaga Asks London Ice Cream Parlor to Cease Selling "Baby Gaga Ice Cream"

Nothing is sacred! Lady Gaga is asking a London ice cream parlor to stop selling "Baby Gaga," an ice cream made with human breast milk. The treat has already sold out and it is reportedly a pasteurized blend mixed with vanilla pods and lemon zest that goes for a steep price that is equivalent to $22 American dollars. There are health concerns about the ingredients, as well!
Gaga isn't into the idea that her name is a part of the treat and lawyers for the pop superstar contacted the owner and gave him until Wednesday to change the name or face trademark infringement, reports Britain's Evening Standard. The lawyers call the ice cream "deliberately provocative and, to many people, nausea-inducing."
Shop owner Matt O'Connor said that the name isn't directly reflective of Gaga herself. He said, "Since the dawn of time the word 'gaga' has been one of the first discernible phrases to come from a baby's mouth. This is why we chose the name."
Team Lady Gaga or Team Baby Gaga?
