1 minute read

Taylor Swift wants to trademark the word “Swiftmas” and four other phrases associated with the 25-year-old pop star.

The “Bad Blood” singer has filed trademark applications for “Swiftmas,” which her fans use to describe her random acts of kindness, as well as “Blank Space,” “And I’ll Write Your Name,” “A Girl Named Girl” and the name of her most recent album, “1989,” USA Today reports.

The requests were filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Dec. 3.

This isn’t the first time Swift has used trademarks to lock up some of her iconic phrases. The pop star in January had sought trademarks for some references to her songs, including “this sick beat,” “nice to meet you; where you been” and “party like it’s 1989.
