Kylie and Kardashian

There’s only one Kylie – and it’s not a Jenner-Kardashian

 

The Kardashians only came to fame because of O. J. Simpson and now one of their number, in attempting to usurp Kylie Minogue, is again showing how utterly preposterous this ragbag of fame hunters truly is.

 

Kylie and Kardashian - Kylie Jenner has had the audacity to dare to take on Kylie Jenner
Ms Jenner has had the audacity to dare to take on Ms Minogue over ownership of their shared Christian name

 

Last August, Kylie Jenner filed a USA trademark application for the name “Kylie” under “advertising” and now, KDB, an Australian-based business representing Minogue, has submitted a notice of opposition. In it, the firm cites Jenner as a “secondary reality television personality” and lists criticism the Keeping Up With the Kardashians participant has received from African-American communities and disability rights groups.

 

Minogue herself joined the fray on Sunday and cryptically tweeted: “Hello… My name is KYLIE #lightyears”. Jenner, meanwhile last week, filed another application under “entertainment services” so sadly for the singer, it looks like this battle won’t be going away anytime soon.

  1. I remember spending a very boozy evening with Kylie’s parents and family friends in the bar of Blakes hotel in Roland Gardens when I stayed there one night. Charming and very down to earth Aussies of the old school “cobber” variety. She comes from good stock.

  2. Charles, thank goodness you mentioned BLAKES. Strangely it had almost slipped my memory. It is ages since I’ve been there. Must go back soon! (Oh. Those Kardashians bemuse me. What are they for? Totally without talent, charm and ugly to boot.)

  3. Glenmore, I simply do not understand how totally talentless people like the Kardashians ever become famous in the first place. It is a sad reflection of the values of our society today. It almost seems that the more moronic these people are, the more they are worshiped by the plebs.

  4. The tale of the Kardashians is, as Charles says, a morality tale of our times. This is a family who seem utterly dysfunctional and crude, yet have captured the imagination of millions: it’s inexplicable except in terms of showing how shallow the masses have become. We must never forget that in terms of money making Armenians excel.
    What was the story about revolving doors? You go in ahead of an Armenian and he comes out before you.
    A bit like the Manoukian family whose money is a source of great mystery.

  5. Kylie is a first name star and has been for years. If, however, you have ever looked after an elderly relative you may know a Kylie as an incontinence aid – google Kylie pads, Perhaps Jenner should go after the Australian company that makes these too.
