Megan Thee Stallion is officially having a Hot Girl Summer.
The rapper announced she successfully secured the trademark to Hot Girl Summer in an interview with Virginia’s 103 Jamz.
“It’s trademarked. We did it,” she said, just days after discussing her reason for wanting the trademark in an interview with Allure.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office database says Theory Entertainment LLC (300 Entertainment, Megan’s label) has a live trademark for Hot Girl Summer, Hot Nerd Shit and Hot Girl Semester.
“I really didn’t even know that it was gonna catch on how it did. It was just me talking shit, telling everybody I was gonna be me for the summer, and they should be them too, like as free as they can be,” she said about her desire for the trademark. “When I saw Wendy’s and Forever 21 saying, ‘Hey, are you having a Hot Girl Summer?’ I was like, ‘Hell no, Forever 21, you’re going to have to pay me.’ But I just wanted to get it trademarked because it’s me. It’s my thing.”
Good for her.
