Lady GaGa thinks she's Southampton Football Club

Lady GaGa continues her downward spiral from hero to Madonna-wrapped-in-meat with an attempt to force photographers to give her their work:

In addition to standard release restrictions regarding the use of images shot at her concerts, the document states that any photos taken at the show become the property of Lady Gaga. This an especially bold demand as the government has established that copyright exists the moment when a work is created, which in this case is the moment when a photographer clicks their shutter button.
According to Rolling Stone, there's actually a less-restrictive release being presented to photographers from larger organisations. That makes it look even worse - not just an attempt to grab rights, but a calculated attempt to only grab the rights from smaller organisations who don't have the power to fight back.

It's starting to look a lot like the funny smell wasn't coming from the meat dress.
