Lady Gaga threatens pants suit

Lady Gaga is threatening to sue a pants company for calling a questionable line of sexy jeans “Gaga.”

The story is a doozy. According to Radar Online, designer Philip Scott’s Gagajeans are billed as “sexitized easy access” trousers with a horizontal, not vertical, zipper across the crotch.

Never mind that only the most brazen of hussies would wear jeans that basically say, “Yep, I’m that easy!”

“When you see someone real fine-looking wearing them,” says Scott on his website, “your mind can only go one place and that is to the zipper.”

Ingenious! Gaga’s lawyer sent the dude a cease and desist notice, natch.
