The following are some of the Lady Gaga-branded items available for purchase in her official Web store: a USB drive, headphones, tote bags, stickable "body beadz," Christmas cards, sunglasses, temporary tattoos and Bluetooth sets. Noticeably lacking? Action figures. Now, efforts to develop a new Gaga action figure have hit a serious snag. Multiple outlets have reported that MGA Entertainment, the company behind the popular, snotty Bratz doll toy line, has filed a $10-million lawsuit against the pop star.

Call her super-talented or super-insane, there's no denying that Lady Gaga has a magnetic effect on young girls, inspiring thousands of young fans to don blond wigs, sheer lace leggings, yellow caution tape and even sunglasses made out of cigarettes. But, the latest Gaga trend — circle lenses, has got not only fashion critics worried, but eye doctors as well.

It's no surprise that Lady Gaga would take a shine to Berlin's storied Berghain nightclub. The place combines pretty much of all of her interests - dark dance music, public sexuality, elaborate fashion and a veneer of inscrutability. It's widely regarded as the best electronic music club on the planet, full stop. So in the same way that Jay-Z pals around with Marina Abramovic for art-world cred, Gaga will dip back into danceland when she hosts a release party for her forthcoming "Artpop" album there on Oct. 24, according to Spin .

She asked for applause , and she got it -- though perhaps quite a bit less than she'd hoped for. Lady Gaga's "Artpop" entered the Billboard 200 on Wednesday at No. 1, the singer's second chart-topper following "Born This Way" in 2011. Whereas "Born" sold 1.1 million copies in its first week in sales -- thanks in part to an Amazon promotion that offered the album for 99 cents -- "Artpop" moved merely 258,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That wasn't terribly more than Eminem's "The Marshall Mathers LP 2," which dropped from No. 1 to No. 2 on second-week sales of 210,000.
