If you can't get enough of your favorite A-list pop star, consider a little gourmet celebrity meat.

BiteLabs take celebrity tissue and injects them in ground meat to produce Italian-style salamis. BiteLabs uses biopsied cells to grow meats in its bioreactors laboratories. Although its yet to get any celebrities on board, it encourages people to Tweet their favorite celebrities asking for tissue samples, so it can isolate the muscle stem cells and turn it into artisan salami. BiteLabs has reached out to James Franco, Jennifer Lawrence, Kanye West and Ellen DeGeneres.

The recipe for the Kanye West salami is said to be heavy and bold with pure Kanye West meat and a blend of rich, ground pork. Included in this salami will be Hungarian paprika and Worcestershire -- but first celebs, have to agree to sending over samples. If you have a specific celebrity in mind, use the hashtag #EatCelebrityMeat to get them on board.
