Don’t mess with Taylor Swift or her catchy little catch phrases/song titles.
I HATE when celebs think they own the English language, especially when they seem so good and nice and wholesome, which is exactly what Tay’s pulling these days. A report came out on Thursday that the pop princess is working on trademarking a whole slew of stuff like “blank space,” “and I’ll write your name,” “Swiftmas,” “a girl named girl,” and “1989.”
Yes, she wants to own A YEAR IN HISTORY.
If her application gets approved, no one else will be able to use those words on clothes, in performances, in books, or on other merchandise, which is a bummer, but at least there are some restrictions with 1989. According to PerezHilton, that trademark will only apply to a “stylized form” of the year. So like, nothing that looks like her album cover, essentially.
The 25-year-old also trademarked “this sick beat,” “nice to meet you, where you been,” and “party like it’s 1989” earlier this year. So she has experience in being a lame-o.
What do you think of her trademark trigger finger?
