Before Lady GaGa could even fully celebrate her home State of New York’s decision to legalize gay marriage, she has been hit with a law suit. A class action lawsuit has reportedly been filed against GaGa, regarding the sale of her We Pray For Japan wristbands.
GaGa charged $5 for the wristbands plus an extra $3.99 for shipping and handling, and an additional 60¢ for taxes. The people who filed the lawsuit believe that she add extra costs so that she could retain some of the money.
Although the singer promised that “all” proceeds would go towards relief efforts for the people of Japan, nobody knows exactly where they went.
To entice fans to buy her wristbands, GaGa wrote on her website:
“I designed a Japan Prayer Bracelet. Buy it/Donate here and ALL proceeds will go to Tsunami Relief Efforts. Go Monsters,” wrote the hitmaker. “Little Monsters, show your support for Japan with this We Pray for Japan wristband!”
It is possible that Lady GaGa needed the money to create her outlandish outfits, and for her unusual stage performances. But hopefully there is a good explanation for all of this.
