Mariah Carey's request to trademark the title of "Queen of Christmas,"which would have allowed her to stop others from using the title, has been denied by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Carey’s company, Lotion LLC, applied for the trademark last year, seeking to add the name on all of Mariah Carey's products: from albums to perfume to even dog leashes.
Another musician, Elizabeth Chan, filed an opposition in August to stop that from happening. Chan claims that she has been called “The Queen Of Christmas” for years, even releasing a Christmas album last year titled "The Queen of Christmas." She has recorded Christmas music for more than a decade and was worried Carey could sue her if the pop star was granted the trademark.
Darlene Love, another musician who was in opposition of the request, is often considered the "Queen of Christmas" by many of her fans. However, the singer's representative confirmed that Love will not be assuming the name, stating that she feels many musicians call themself the Queen and have had huge success with Christmas records.
Who do you think is the "Queen of Christmas?"
