    Lady Gaga has responded to the lawsuit over the Japan prayer bracelets soon after the earthquake and tsunami hit the country on March 11. Each $5 rubber wrist band was stamped with "We Pray for Japan" and all proceeds, according to Gaga's site, were going to charity. She donated over $1 million to the relief effort when all was said and done...until a class action suit was brought against her.

    The suit claims she did not donate all of the money. The lawsuit notes that an unnecessary sales tax and a $3.99 shipping charge were added to each order.

    The lawsuit seeks class-action status and possible refunds for people who bought wristbands. Gaga's rep issued a statement today, saying: "This misguided lawsuit is without merit and unfortunately takes attention away from the kind deeds of the fans around the world who are supporting the people of Japan. The entire $5 donation made with the purchase of each bracelet is going to support the disaster relief. No profit is being made on shipping costs. Sales tax charges were made in accordance with local legal requirements. Lady Gaga has personally pledged her own funds to this cause and continues to support the victims of the disaster."

    What do you think of Gaga's response to the lawsuit?
