Move over Rihanna and Kylie Jenner — Cardi B may be breaking into the beauty business!
On Thursday, TMZ reported that the “WAP” rapper’s company, Washpoppin Inc., filed legal documents to trademark the phrase “Bardi Beauty” — a reference to one of her nicknames, “Bardi.”
Per the outlet, the 28-year-old is hoping to use the phrase on a variety of products, including cosmetics, fragrances, haircare, skin care, nail polish, and nail enamel.
The paperwork also features Cardi’s signature and her real name, Belcalis Almanzar.
Of course, this isn’t the first time the mother of one has tried to cash in on one of her signature sayings.
In 2019, the MC’s attorney filed applications to trademark the term “okurrr” to use on paper goods, like cups and posters, and clothing, like T-shirts and undergarments.
However, months later, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office denied the request because the chirp is a “commonplace term, message, or expression widely used by a variety of sources that merely conveys an ordinary, familiar, well-recognized concept or sentiment.”
They also noted that the expression is “commonly used in the drag community and by celebrities as an alternate way of saying ‘OK’ or ‘something that is said to affirm when someone is being put in their place.’”
Hopefully, Cardi will have better luck this time around!
