Lady Gaga has no problem calling foul on anyone that tries to cash in on the Gaga name.
In the past, the cases have been pretty standard: the trademarks were registered after Lady Gaga’s rise to fame and have directly tried to profit from an association. But now Gaga’s cosmetic company, Ate My Heart Inc., may have found themselves on the side of a losing battle with Gaga Pure Platinum. The Albany makeup brand not only holds the trademark name, but filed it long before Stefani Germanotta transformed herself into the queen of the Little Monsters.
Paris Hilton is no Kim Kardashian*, but she’s still rolling in dough. And no, not her parents money.
The blonde heiress with the dwindling cultural cache is set to debut her 15th fragrance, Dazzle, which will add an expected $20 million onto what is already a $1.5 billion fragrance brand. So before the sale of her 15th perfume, Paris Hilton has made $1,500,000,000 off of smells.
Just let that sink in for a moment.
