King Kylie is back at it. This time, the 18-year-old is in the spotlight for attempting to trademark the name “Kylie” in the United States. Could this be the beginning of the mononym, “Kylie,” — just like other famous stars, such as Beyoncé, Madonna, Shakira, or Usher.
One person who is not accepting of this name change is Australian singer, Kylie Minogue. Minogue, who is also named “Kylie,” filed a notice of opposition against Jenner’s trademark application. The notice of opposition threw quite some shade at the youngest Jenner, calling her a secondary reality television personality, and detailing information about Jenner’s controversy with the Disability Rights and African-American communities.
The opposition also stated that Minogue is an internationally renowned performing artist, humanitarian, and breast cancer activist, and known worldwide simply as “Kylie.” Clearly, Jenner did not research or think about these facts. Also, Minogue owns the domain, kylie.com.
Hello….. My name is KYLIE #lightyears

In 2014, Jenner’s sister, Kendall decided to drop her last name as well, but only for the purposes of her modelling career. Sister, Kim is synonymous with just her first name, no need for Kardashian. And Khloé’s unique spelling make it easy to know who is being talked about. Also, the reality star goes simply by just Khloé on Twitter and Instagram. Either Kylie might be going in the direction of having solo names, like her sisters or she might truly think she’s a king who runs this.
Who do you think will win the battle of the name, “Kylie?”
