Mariah Carey Loses Battle To Become ‘Queen of Christmas’

Mariah Carey has officially lost her battle to become the ‘Queen of Christmas’.

The Fantasy hitmaker, 52, had attempted to trademark the royal title, the abbreviation ‘QOC’ and the next best name ‘Princess Christmas’.

All the requests were officially denied by the US Patent and Trademark Office after her company failed to respond to a rival’s opposition.

Mariah was already the unofficial queen of the festive season after mammoth success of her 1994 track ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ – which finally topped the UK charts in 2020.

But the singer’s official trademark would have given her the legal right to stop others from using the title on music and merchandise.

Her company Lotion LLC applied for the trademark earlier last year, but they ran into issues despite it being something that would normally be smooth sailing.

Singer Elizabeth Chan put in a legal challenge in August in a bid to stop her from obtaining the registration after disagreeing with Mariah’s merchandise intentions.

Elizabeth, herself dubbed the ‘Queen of Christmas’ by the New Yorker in 2018 after her own string of festive records, wasn’t a fan of Mariah monetising Christmas.
