Will We Soon Be Sipping ‘Bocktails’ with Cardi B?
Looks like the rap superstar wants to get into the drinks business.
The answer may soon be "yes."
The rap superstar is looking to expand her cultural domination into the realm of adult beverages.
She has filed documents to trademark the name “Bocktails with Cardi B,” requesting its use for “entertainment services in the nature of providing ongoing episodes for distribution via television and the Internet featuring celebrities and artists," TMZ reported, suggesting Cardi B was aiming to start her own talk show.
The trademark documents also request exclusive rights to the phrase in relationship to clothes, “including shirts, t-shirts, sweatshirts, hooded sweatshirts, hats, caps, footwear, skirts, dresses, blouses, sweaters, pants and shorts," and, TMZ noted, "alcoholic beverages, except beer and beverages containing beer."
Why not beer? Probably because “bocktails” – meaning cocktails made with beer – are already a thing.
Anyhow, Cardi B has denied that she wants to dominate our TV screens as she does our music radio stations. But at the same time, she confirmed her alcohol dreams.
“No I’m not doing a tv show. I’m just trade marking different drinks name,” she tweeted.
Okurrr. (And by the way, she filed to trademark that one back in March.)
