According to TMZ Cardi B is apparently itching to have her own TV show, presumably called “Bocktails with Cardi B.”
Clearly a play on the word cocktails, it seems Cardi has moved to trademark the term.
She also recently filed to trademark her signature “okurrr” catchphrase – as well as “okurr” with one less r, too. While it’s unclear if that’ll take hold, we’re guessing a “Bocktails with Cardi B” trademark might be easier to obtain.
According to the new documents filed, Cardi is laying claim to “Bocktails with Cardi B” for “entertainment services in the nature of providing ongoing episodes for distribution via television and the Internet featuring celebrities and artists.”
Sounds interesting. Perhaps it’ll be something of an alcohol-tinged, late-night talk show.
Of course, that’s not the only thing for which she’s seeking to trademark the name.
Like “Okurrr,” Cardi is additionally attempting to trademark the name for use on clothing as well. That includes t-shirts and sweatshirts, footwear, dresses, pants, and more. (“Okurrr” was also trademarked for use on paper goods, like posters and paper cups.)
Plus, it seems she also plans to use the name for “alcoholic beverages, except beer and beverages containing beer.”
We’re not sure what, exactly, Cardi has against beer. However, it sure seems we won’t be seeing any Cardi Brewskis in her line of boozy beverages.
For celebrities like Cardi, trademarks are all just part of the business. The Kardashians have registered well over 50 different trademarks – including both their and their children’s’ names. And Taylor Swift has over 80 of her own as well.
Catchphrases are pretty commonly trademarked, too. Donald Trump’s “Make American Great Again” slogan is trademarked, as is Paris Hilton’s signature phrase: “That’s hot.”
Swift applied for trademarks for the line “This Sick Beat,” from her hit song Shake It Off, as well as “Nice to meet you,” “Where you been?” and “Party like it’s 1989.”
And, of course, Michael Buffer has laid claim to “Let’s get ready to rumble!”
That all said, we expect Cardi to file for plenty more trademarks in the years to come.
