Megan Thee Stallion is on her hot girl ish. As reported by Billboard, the Houston native is currently in the process of trademarking her viral phrase “Hot Girl Summer.”
According to Billboard, the trademark was filed July 10, the same day Megan responded to one of her fans saying she was actively “in the process” of making it happen.
As the “Hot Girl Summer” meme has taken off online, brands including Wendy’s, Duolingo, Forever 21 and Maybelline have all used it in their marketing.
The trademark will reportedly cover merchandise specifically for products such as hoodies, T-shirts and sportswear, if approved.
Earlier this year, Cardi B attempted to trademark “Okurrr” for merchandising reasons as well, but the request was denied by the U.S. Patent and Trademark officials.
According to People, officials said the phrase was considered a “widely-used commonplace expression,” after learning that the Kardashian family and many of her fans had used “Okurrr” over the years. And the phrase actually derives from RuPaul’s Drag Race season six contestant Laganja Estranja.
However, with Megan coining the phrase “Hot Girl Summer,” she hopefully won’t find herself receiving similar news.
The rapper has teased dropping a summer anthem for the phrase. She’s also running her own “Hot Girl Summer” playlist on Spotify with over 115,000 followers according to Complex.
Megan is definitely having fun and being confident which is apart of her definition for a “hot girl.”
