Despite Lady Gaga's best -- or "breast" -- efforts, a London ice cream parlor has vowed to resume making breast milk ice cream.
Earlier this year, the Icecreamists parlor introduced "Baby Gaga," an ice cream made from a recipe that included 75 percent human breast milk combined with 25 percent cream from cows and some Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest.
Each scoop sold for a whopping $22 U.S., but despite the high price, "Baby Gaga" was a big with most people.
Except Lady Gaga, that is. Although the Lady herself has never explicitly discussed breast milk or ice cream in any of her songs, Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor named the titillating treat after the singer as a tribute.
"We named it 'Baby Gaga' because she's the queen of 'shock and roll,'" O'Connor told AOL Weird News when the flavor was introduced Feb. 25.
At the time, he was confident she'd approve because the flavor was, like her own famous stunts, meant to raise questions and provoke discussion.
"Some people are turned off by the idea," he said. "But, really, it raises the philosophical question: Is it better if we use milk from cows injected with hormones who are artificially induced with pregnancy every few months, or human milk?"
Gaga apparently didn't want any variation of her name connected with that philosophical question and sued the Icecreamists for riding on her coattails with a product she believed was "nausea-inducing."
This, by the way, from a woman who once wore a dress made of raw meat.
Lady Gaga wasn't the only one who reacted negatively to the breast milk frozen treat. Right after the product was introduced, the local town council banned the ice cream over health concerns.
However, Newslite reports the wacky product will this week once again go on sale in London's Covent Garden at a new political ice cream installation.
The recipe is the same, but the name has been changed to "Baby Goo Goo" in hopes of avoiding a hassle with the pop star.
But that doesn't seem to be enough to appease the singer and O'Connor feels the Lady doth protest too much.
"As 'Gagagate' tediously lactates its way towards the courts, this Lady has changed position more times than she has recycled Madonna's image," he wrote on his blog. "First, it was an injunction (offered her a choice of alternative names and then called it Goo Goo instead of Gaga), then it was damages (said we'd see her in court), then it was costs (an unlawful claim as litigation hadn't begun), then she was bizarrely demanding to make a joint statement with me."
"Now she is demanding censorship. Yes, this self-styled champion of internet freedom is throwing her toys out of the pram, screaming (yawn into cornflakes) we remove any reference, anywhere in the universe, to this story and her threats (made public by me) that she threatened to seize my assets and those of my business."
For the record, O'Connor says the only assets he has are "whats sitting on my shoulders and even my wife says thats debatable."
Baby Goo Goo: The Second Coming will be relaunched later this week at something called the "SCREAM" ice cream installation, which is being billed as a new political ice cream installation that O'Connor says will "explore our relationship with food in a witty and provocative way as we began with our breast milk ice cream project.
"Ice cream is in a constant state of flux and is the perfect metaphor to describe our changing world," he said.
