Lady Gaga fights unauthorized comic strip biography

A comic strip biography of Lady Gaga has been hit with a legal action by the singer. While the comic strip, “Fame: Lady Gaga” has sold out, she contends that it was not authorized. She joins Justin Bieber who is also suing the comic strip creators Bluewater Productions. His book is due out in October. Bluewater insist they are within their rights to create these biographies.

It seems like bio-comics like this have become very popular (amongst publishers that is) ever since the Obama one (I think that was the first one). Even Charlaine Harris has one. I wonder if any of them are “authorized.”

It should be noted that Bluewater is notorious for its repulsive back-end work-for-hire contracts as discussed here:

Actually, there was a big spate of unauthorized comic book biographies of various musicians in the early 90s. I remember seeing the one about Kriss Kross.

I’ll chime in What Tony said, Bluewater has a very notorious reputation when it comes to paying creative talent on books.
