In other news: Lady Gaga threatens to sue over breast milk ice cream
Lady Gaga is asking a London ice cream parlor to stop selling "Baby Gaga," an ice cream made with human breast milk. The shop sold out of the flavor (pasteurized and mixed with vanilla pods and lemon zest; a serving sells for the American equivalent of $22.50) when it was introduced last week, but government officials confiscated the double-scoop treat over health concerns. Now Gaga is weighing in: 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 he's prepared to fight: "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."
