Lady Gaga knows how to milk publicity, but she's not keen on others doing the same.

At least when it's used to sell ice cream made from human breast milk.

Capital FM reports that Gaga is suing the Icecreamists, a London ice cream parlor that recently introduced "Baby Gaga," an ice cream made from human breast milk.

Lady Gaga is suing a London ice cream parlor for naming their new flavor, which is made from human breast milk, "Baby Gaga."
According to legal documents obtained by The Daily Mail, the business is coldly accused of "riding on the coattails" of the singer.

But business owner Matt O'Connor sees the flavor as more of a tribute.

"We named it 'Baby Gaga' because she's the queen of 'shock and roll,'" O'Connor told AOL 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 such as wearing a dress made of meat, meant to raise questions and provoke discussion.

"Some people are turned off by the idea, 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?" O'Connor said.

Gaga apparently doesn't see it that way and reportedly calls the product "nausea inducing."

The outlet has been told to "change the name of the ice cream to something which is not aurally, visually or conceptually similar to Lady Gaga" or court action will be taken.

O'Connor doesn't seem to be fearing a showdown in court and is happily promoting the controversy on his blog.

"The fact that the world's biggest superstar is now prosecuting the world's smallest ice cream parlor, is akin to the actions of a big baby, rocking in a corner with some wet wipes crying over spilt milk," O'Connor wrote on the business's blog, adding, "In this case, breast milk."

O'Connor also notes that the ice cream was on sale for just a few hours before it was confiscated by Westminster City Council.

"So it's not as if it's been a best seller for a parlor where the paint is barely dry and the doors open just over a week. Nobody seems to have told her it is no longer for sale."

He finds it ironic that the superstar calls the product "nausea inducing" when she has been known for "wearing rotting cow's flesh."

"At least our customers are still alive when they contribute to our 'art,'" he added.
