The reason this permanent A list singer has always lied about her age is pretty simple.

It is only a one year difference, so why would she do it?

It wasn’t her.

It was the record label owner/significant other.

He wanted her to be able to go through an entire decade with people saying she was in her 20’s.

He didn’t want the blip at the end where people would call her 30 or nearly 30. It was long term marketing.

Mariah Carey BLOCKED from trademarking ‘Queen of Christmas’ title by festive singer Elizabeth Chan – who jubilantly declares: ‘it’s the season of giving, not taking!’

All I Want For Christmas Is You singer Carey, 52, filed an application to trademark the phrase in March 2021 – a move which infuriated festive singers Chan, 42, and Darlene Love, 81

On Tuesday, the United States Trademark Trial and Appeal Board ruled against Carey’s attempt to trademark ‘Queen of Christmas’

It also rejected and denied Carey’s concurrent attempts to register the trademarks ‘Princess Christmas’ and ‘QOC’

Chan said: ‘Christmas is a season of giving, not the season of taking, and it is wrong for an individual to attempt to own and monopolize a nickname like Queen of Christmas for the purposes of abject materialism’

It’s become customary for Carey to promote her mid-90s studio album – Merry Christmas – throughout the last two months of the year

The lead single is ubiquitous around the holiday season as fans push it back to the top of the music charts year after year.

Mariah’s March 2021 application being made public defied her December 2021 claim that she believes the title ‘Queen Of Christmas’ should be bestowed upon the Virgin Mary.

Speaking on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show, Mariah insisted she never chose the festive moniker herself and explained: ‘That was other people, and I just want to humbly say that I don’t consider myself that.

Back in August Darlene Love took to Facebook where she asked: ‘Is it true that Mariah Carey trade marked ‘Queen of Christmas’? What does that mean that I can’t use that title?

‘David Letterman officially declared me the Queen of Christmas 29 years ago, a year before she released ‘All I want For Christmas Is You’ and at 81 years of age I’m NOT changing anything.

‘I’ve been in the business for 52 years, have earned it and can still hit those notes! If Mariah has a problem call David or my lawyer!!’

As well as Chan and Love, there is also Brenda Lee who recorded multiple Christmas songs in the late ’50s and ’60s. – Source
