Australian pop-star Kylie Minogue doesn’t want anyone trademarking her precious name!
KDB, an Australian-based business representing Minogue, filed a notice of opposition for Kylie Jenner’s US trademark application for the term ‘Kylie’, which was filed in August of last year.
KDB claimed that if the US Patent and Trademark Office approved Jenner’s application then it would cause confusion among consumers between the two Kylies and dilute her brand. That doesn’t make a lot of sense, I don’t think, as to me the two represent very different demographics.
The company also cited existing trademark registrations for the term ‘Kylie’ that cover entertainment services and music recordings, though Minogue owns her own trademarks for the terms ‘Kylie Minogue darling’, ‘Lucky – the Kylie Minogue musical’ and ‘Kylie Minogue’.
Minogue called Jenner a “secondary reality television personality” who has received criticism from disability rights groups and African-American communities. Not sure if that’ll make the difference, but who knows?
Do you think Kylie Jenner should have rights to “Kylie?”

They’re certainly walking, if anything.
Kylie Minogue and Chris Martin went for a very late-night walk in Hyde Park after she performed to a packed house at the British Summer Time festival Sunday night, Dailymail reports.
Hours later, the causally-dressed pop princess and Coldplay frontman strolled through the park together. The two were walking very close and apparently cuddling as they talked and walked past Parliament and Buckingham Palace, then disappeared into lovers lane AKA St James’s Park.
So what’s the DEAL WITH THESE TWO? Kylie’s been in lots of relationships as has Chris, most recently with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lawrence. Is Kylie his next blonde conquest? Or are they just a couple musical buds, trying to keep warm during a chilly London night?
Would you like to see these two date?

Kris Jenner bared her cleavage in a risqué minidress and Kylie called it out!
The momager was in in Paris, France yesterday, wearing the hell out of a sexy black-and-white number from Balmain’s spring 2015 collection, which featured a plunging neckline. Jenner covered up in a long black velvet blazer, but still showed off some toned legs and frankly, a pretty banging bod.
Naturally, the skin-baring outfit choice prompted her teenage daughter to react via social media. “Damn ma!” 17-year-old Kylie wrote on Instagram, alongside glamorous paparazzi shots of her mother. “I hope I look this good at ur fine age #momgoals.”
Yeah, I hope I look good at HALF Kris’ age. DANG.

Kylie Minogue‘s newest single, ‘Sexercise’, has got a ton of attention, and also spawned its own website which hosts variations on the original single’s/video’s theme. Of course, the controversy surrounding the song and accompanying clip means people want to know where it all came from, what it’s all about. Turns out, there’s a simple answer to that… kinda.
How did you come up with Sexercize.tv? What was the inspiration to come up with so many variations on the “sexercize” theme?
Well, what is sexercize? It’s everything, it’s nothing, it’s everything, it’s whatever, really. It was important with that song to have a lot of fun with it — it’s not a single, but it’s a song that we could get some traction with, have some fun, be a bit saucy. I’ve been talking to my friend Richard Christiansen, who founded Chandelier Creative, for years, saying, “We’ve got to do something together.” This seemed like the perfect vehicle. It was fantastic to have such great and varied artists take the time and join in on the fun of this project. I’ve never done anything like this — and I actually can’t think of another artist who has, so maybe it’s a first? I’m not sure.
It might be. You have the videos for the songs themselves, and the horoscopes and the gifs…
Sextrology! I think one of my favorites might be National Geographic. They blessed our crazy little project. It’s quite amazing.
It also shows the universal nature of sexercize, I guess.
All I can say is there are a lot of fans tweeting me pictures of bounce balls and other interpretations of the video. I sent an e-mail to the director when we were going for edits, and I signed off, “Love, Kylie, fully qualified Sexercize instructor (TM).”
I have to admit, I wasn’t sold on ‘Sexercise’ or Kiss Me Once as an album just yet, but I do love Kylie so I’m sorta on board even if I’m not 100% on the material. You’ve gotta admit she’s pretty great anyway.
