As a father of an infant, I can tell you first hand, that babies go through a phase where they say "gaga gaga" quite frequently. This is not new. So it's not too surprising that the makers of the somewhat controversial "breastmilk ice cream" that's been a controversial hit, decided to name it "Baby Gaga." However, now there are reports (as many of you sent in) that Lady Gaga is threatening the shop for violating her rights. Does this mean pretty much every baby ever can sue Lady Gaga for copying their schtick? Look, if you're going to pick a common baby phrase as your silly stage name, don't be surprised when others use it too. But don't go legal over it. It just makes you look like a baby.
