Lady Miss Appropriated


Lady Miss Kier, flamboyant leader of early-90s dance-pop trio Deee-Lite, demands $750,000 from Sega for unauthorized use of her female drag-queen image. A lawsuit in Los Angeles claims the video gamer offered Miss Kier $15,000 to base the character Ulala, in the games Space Channel 5 and Space Channel 5 Part 2, on the club diva, but she refused. The suit has already achieved its primary purpose of reminding people that Lady Miss Kier is still alive, and making ends meet through her DJing company B.I.T.C.H. (Being In Technological Courageous Harmony). Sadly, Super DJ Dmitry and Jungle DJ Towa, currently in the rave witness protection program, were unavailable for comment. You can compare a picture of Lady Miss Kier in her heyday with a screen shot of Ulala. If you ask me, a lawsuit by Tickled Pink would have a better chance in court.
