Bratz Dolls Sues Lady Gaga
MGA Entertainment has filied a law suite for more than $10 million claiming pop star Lady Gaga sabotaged a deal, to make a doll in her likeness (crazy costume and all) along with “voice chip” with samples of her songs of her music. The doll would have been relased Fall of 2012. MGA Entertainment – maker of the popular Bratz doll line said the plan was derailed in the spring when the merchandizer, Bravado International, wanted to wait a year for Gaga’s new album and use the new music on the voice chip. Read the crazy comments back and forth between the two companies below, it gets alittle weird but it what do you expect it is Lady Gaga. Also the picture above was done by artist/fan Helen Green.
A representative for Lady Gaga called the lawsuit “ill-conceived” and said there was “no legitimate reason” to drag the singer into a dispute primarily between MGA and Bravado, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group.
Bravado issued a statement through a spokesman calling the lawsuit “meritless.”
In the lawsuit, MGA’s lawyers claimed that Lady Gaga’s representatives were initially thrilled with the doll prototypes, although they had asked for a few tweaks. In one email cited in the lawsuit, Bobby Campbell, the vice president of Gaga’s management company, the Atom Factory, asked if the doll could be “more supermodel-like” with “more of a cat-eye and sexier, poutier lips.” He also discussed a doll with a removable head that would pop off to reveal a bloody stump.
“We would like to see options with and without a bloody stump for comparison,” he wrote.
