MEMO TO LADY GAGA : YOUR SHAWL AND YOUR ORTHOPEDIC SHOES ARE READY!
Think fame is fickle? Fame is FOREVER, when measured against edgy and outrageous. Ask Google. Ask David Bowie. Ask Madonna
And now ask Lady Gaga.
Lady G has filed a lawsuit against the small London ice cream boutique that has produced BABY GAGA ice cream. Made from breast milk.
You think such ice cream is gross? Well of course you do. And so does Lady Gaga. She is offended by any association with such a product. And how did she describe her displeasure? That's what is so telling.
As her lawyers put it with such irony,ice cream made from breast milk is "deliberately provocative and, to many people, nausea-inducing".
As she clawed her way to the top I suspect that Lady G's guiding star was to, at all costs, be deliberately provocative and to many people nausea-inducing. But once one is touched by fame the oh so powerful urge is to stay famous. When you can't put all your fame at risk by yet another outrageous undertaking you have begun the slow descent into obscurity. Any one for shuffleboard?
