Celebrities are the most influential people on the face of this planet. Not only do they influence us on the silver screen, tabloids, and on TV, but also leave a major mark on the various aspects of our lives – fashion, lifestyle, and even our food. Literally. There are popular food items out there that are named after a bunch of popular celebs. Take a look at some of them.

Pop singer, Avril Lavigne is quite an admired celebrity in Canada-based La Pizzeria, which used to be the singers favorite hometown hang-out spots when she was in high school.

Lady Gaga’s meat dress is not unknown to us. Especially those of us living in China, who can even eat a version of the dress.

The ingredients do vary widely from restaurant to restaurant, but most of them include a tuna element.
