Pop superstar Lady Gaga has successfully halted a British company from promoting a look-alike animated character called Lady Goo Goo.
Lady Goo Goo is a sunglasses-wearing blonde baby created for the Moshi Monsters site, which allows children to adopt virtual pet monsters. Another character in the game is Dustbin Beaver, based on teen heartthrob Justin Bieber.
Mind Candy's founder Michael Acton Smith told the Associated Press he hoped the award-winning diva would have reacted differently. "It was all done in the name of fun, and we would have thought that Lady Gaga could have seen the humor behind this parody."
