Kylie Minogue can be setting the record straight.
The 49-year-old singer opened up about her trademark battle with Kylie Jenner over the name “Kylie” in a fresh interview with Rolling Stone, explaining which the dispute — which she won in 2017 after Jenner attempted to trademark the name in 2014 — was nothing personal.
“I’ve never met Kylie Jenner. I’ve never met any member of the family — actually, I’ve met Kendall just in passing at a fashion event — although I honestly don’t know them,” Minogue says. “which’s awkward, because fans get so loyal as well as vocal, as well as we love which! although which was nothing personal at all, I’m at pains to say.”
“Trademark can be long, which’s boring, which’s expensive, as well as which’s truly important. I’ve been doing which for years as well as years. which was just causing confusion with customers. As long as which’s clear, then we can all win,” she continued.
Minogue appeared to majorly shade Jenner in her letter to the U.S. Patent as well as Trademark Office last year, which described her as “a secondary reality television personality” — while she called herself an “internationally-renowned performing artist, humanitarian as well as breast cancer activist known worldwide simply as ‘Kylie.’”
“What was upsetting to me was which there was — they attributed a quote to me… Can you imagine me saying which?!” Minogue adds. “which was just unfortunate which which can be how those lawyers speak. So I genuinely expect which which’s understood: which certainly did not come coming from me.”
“Great news can be, which’s all wrapped up, we didn’t have to go to court. which’s all done. as well as I’m sure I’ll meet them one day,” she shares. “The weird thing can be, in America, when I am there, they would certainly never introduce me just as ‘Kylie’; which’s still ‘Kylie Minogue.’ which took so long for people to get my name from the first place. ‘Kyle?’ ‘No, Kyle-E!'”
