Have you ever seen a family less aware of the world around them than the Kardashian/Jenner clan? Every single member – save for maybe Bruce, but he stayed with Kris for, like, 25 years, so I question his judgment, as well – lives in the clouds and has no idea how life actually works for most people. That’s the only reason I can imagine that Kylie and Kendall Jenner thought it would be a great idea to try and trademark their names.
It’s all part of the Kardashian’s blitzkrieg campaign. We’ve learned Kylie Jenner has filed an application last month to trademark her first name to “entertainment in the nature of providing information by means of a global computer network in the fields of entertainment, fashion and pop culture.”
Kylie also wants to mark her territory for personal appearances “by a celebrity, actress and model.”
Although someone might theoretically use the name “Kylie” with a different font, K.J.’s lawyers could swoop in and argue it creates confusion among consumers. So Kylie Minogue, move over.
BTW … Kendall has filed an application to trademark her first name for the same purposes.
Guys, I wish I was joking. When I first read this, I thought I had accidentally clicked on The Onion because it’s too ridiculous even for them. At least Kendall has a “job” as a model for now, while she’s the flavour of the month. Kylie does absolutely fuck all besides try to look like Kim and date a grown ass man who’s been with her since before she was legal.
Plus, clearly no one has introduced Kylie to the ORIGINAL and forever queen of the name:
The last weekend of Coachella just finished, and it wouldn’t be the same if all the celebs didn’t come out to play. Take, for instance, some of the biggest celebrities in the world – Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner and Khloe Kardashian. They went! Oh, and Kylie’s grown man boyfriend, Tyga. He was there, too. We know all this because they had to publicize their exploits on Instagram. Can we talk about what the hell was happening with Kylie’s hair, please??? I mean, don’t even get me started on the outfit, either.
I don’t even think anyone in this family is a legit music fan, so clearly going to a music festival was just another chance for them to get press. It worked!
Meanwhile, this is what Kourtney was up to over in Las Vegas…
Nothing new to see here – just Kendall Jenner taking her clothes off, this time for GQ magazine. I’m not quite sure that there’s any point to this spread, so to speak, other than that Kendall is all the rage right now, and dudes love to see ladies naked (or nearly naked – close enough).
Kendall looks great, mostly because she’s a pretty girl who, unlike the rest of her family, hasn’t felt the need to go under the knife 900 times to entirely change her face and body. She’s fine as she is, and that’s what’s making her the big bucks now, so good for her.
So if you want my take on it, I think they’re totally “hooking up”, as the kids say. Though Bieber and Jenner have previously been linked together, Bieber has, of late, been linked to one Ashley Moore. But who’s to say they’re not exclusive? Maybe he’s ~~playing the field~~. There are plenty of hapless women out there who would love some Biebs. I am not one of them, but they’re out there.
What do you think? (“I don’t give an eff” is a totally acceptable answer, FYI.)
Yesterday, US Weekly published a story (which has since been removed from the site) which featured “quotes” from Kendall Jenner about her father, Bruce, and his transition into becoming a woman. I read the original story, but since I don’t have the exact quotes now, it was something along the lines of how she’ll always love her dad for being there for her throughout her life and she supports him whether he’s a man or a woman. Now, is all of that true? I’m sure. Did Kendall actually say it? Uh… definitely not.
Kendall took to Twitter a few hours after the story was published to express her outrage:
In what is probably the most respectable move they’ve ever made, US Weekly decided to retract their original statement and issue an apology… although not really, because instead of taking ownership of their bullshit, they’ve blamed it on a “freelance journalist” who did the “interview” and whose story they can no longer “verify”. Fuck off, US Weekly.
On Wednesday, March 18, Us Weekly published on UsMagazine.com an interview with model and reality star Kendall Jenner entitled “Kendall Jenner Breaks Silence on Bruce Jenner’s Transition: ‘I Will Always Love My Dad.’” The interview was allegedly conducted by an independent freelance journalist at the Saturday, March 14, taping of Comedy Central’s roast of Justin Bieber in Los Angeles. When Ms. Jenner denied, via Twitter, that the interview took place, Us Weekly immediately reached out to the freelance reporter. He stood by the interview, and continues to maintain that the quotes are accurate. However, after attempting to reconfirm his account, editors of Us have concerns about the veracity of this interview and the circumstances under which it was obtained. We would like to retract the story entirely and have removed it from our website. We sincerely apologize to Ms. Jenner and her family.
Ridiculous… and yet, how are these magazines not having to issue retractions/apologies every day?
Kendall Jenner is perhaps the smartest member of the entire Kardashian/Jenner family. She’s certainly the one with the least amount of cosmetic procedures – but that’s neither here nor there. Kendall has managed to carve out an actual modeling career for herself and is one of the most sought-after models in the business at the moment. She’s already booked a spot as the face of Estee Lauder, but now it seems she’s kicking things up yet another notch and is going to be the new face of Calvin Klein, as well.
Add Kendall Jenner to the list of people for whom nothing comes between them and their Calvins.
Sources tell us the in-demand model and junior member of the Kardashian klan has signed on to be a face, or rather body, for the underwear brand.
Jenner, who’s been walking runways for Chanel and Balmain at Paris fashion week, has been posting photos of herself wearing Calvin Klein undies on her Instagram since last year, often tagging the line to show her support.
Huh. This wouldn’t surprise me, really – I mean, look at the picture above! I’m not trying to say I’m a fashion plate by any means, by the way, but is Calvin Klein still cool? I know they got Bieber to do that ad for them, but I feel like Calvin is quintessential ’90s?
Hey guys, awesome news! Just when you thought you couldn’t get enough of the Kardashian clan – after all, there’s only Keeping Up with the Kardsahians, Kim & Kourtney Take New York, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons,Whateverthefuck Kardashian Takes My Butt, etc – we’re about to get one more treat sent our way. That’s right: Kendall and Kylie Jenner are getting their own spinoff show.
The prospect of a “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” spinoff series focusing on the two teen members of the reality TV clan has been discussed at E! and Ryan Seacrest Prods.
A show insider tells Variety that a spinoff is on the drawing board, although it’s unclear how quickly it might come together. Sources caution that there have been no formal negotiations with the Jenner siblings. A spokesperson for E! says there is no spinoff in the works.
But putting a bigger spotlight on the daughters of Kris Kardashian and Bruce Jenner is an obvious next step for E! as Kendall’s and Kylie’s celebrity and social-media following has grown by leaps and bounds during the past year.
Huh. To be honest, I imagine it’d be slightly less obnoxious than Kim’s blank staring and high-pitched airheadedness that fills all the other Kardashian shows, but not by much. After all, Kylie is shaping herself into Kim Jr, so it doesn’t look good. Kylie’s okay, though (for now). If you can’t beat ‘em, might as well try and find a way to tolerate them.
