Kylie Minogue is speaking out following her win in a trademark battle against Kylie Jenner, who was attempting to trademark the name "Kylie." The singer spoke about the legal battle to Rolling Stone in an interview published on Friday.
"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 - but I honestly don't know them. It's awkward, because fans get so loyal and vocal, and we love that! But it was nothing personal at all, I'm at pains to say," she said.
"Trademark is long, it's boring, it's expensive, and it's really important. I've been doing that for years and years. It was just causing confusion with customers. As long as it's clear, then we can all win. What was upsetting to me was that there was - they attributed a quote to me..." she continued.
That quote in question used to describe Kylie Jenner was: "A secondary reality television personality who appeared on the television series Keeping Up With the Kardashians as a supporting character." "Can you imagine me saying that?!" Minogue said.
"That was just unfortunate that that is how those lawyers speak. So I genuinely hope that it's understood: That certainly did not come from me. Good news is, that's all wrapped up, we didn't have to go to court. That's all done. And I'm sure I'll meet them one day. The weird thing is, in America, when I am there, they would never introduce me just as 'Kylie'; it's still 'Kylie Minogue.' It took so long for people to get my name in the first place. 'Kyle?' 'No, Kyle-E'!"
Kylie released the music video for her latest single, "Dancing," last week.
