Lady Gaga Threatens Lawsuit Against 'Baby Gaga' Breast-Milk Ice Cream

Lady Gaga has threatened legal action against Icecreamists, a shop in central London that had been selling an ice cream made from human breast milk called Baby Gaga. In a cease-and-desist notice issued to shop owner Matt O'Connor, Gaga described the product as "nausea-inducing."

She's a bit late in going after the ice cream makers though, as the product was pulled last week when inspectors from Westminster's food standards department seized the remaining breast milk ice cream to be tested for health code violations. Selling foodstuffs made with human bodily fluids is banned in London to combat the spread of disease.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
