Mariah Carey is officially not the "Queen of Christmas" after having a trademark rejected for the phrase by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
If the 'All I Want For Christmas' singer had been granted the trademark, it would have allowed her to stop others from using the words in music and advertising.
Carey also failed in her attempt to trademark "CCC" and "Princess Christmas".
The pop star was denied the trademarks after her company failed to respond to an objection by another singer.
Elizabeth Chan put in a legal challenge in August to try and stop Carey securing the trademark. She had previously been dubbed the "Queen of Christmas" by The New Yorker in 2018.
Both Carey and Chan have become synonymous with the Christmas period but Chan said in an interview with Variety: "I feel very strongly that no one person should hold onto anything around Christmas or monopolise it in the way that Mariah seeks to in perpetuity."
She added: "That's just not the right thing to do. Christmas is for everyone. It's meant to be shared; it's not meant to be owned."
Chan also argued that people should be free to use the phrase however they wish: "If you knit a 'Queen of Christmas' sweater, you should be able to sell it on Etsy to somebody else so they can buy it for their grandma. It's crazy - it would have that breadth of registration."
Carey's best known Christmas tune is 'All I Want for Christmas is You' which was released in 1994. The song has sold over 10 million copies in the US and is the best selling Christmas song of all time, earning her a reported $60m by 2021.
The Christmas classic finally hit the top of the UK charts in 2020 after it was originally kept from number one by East 17 and 'Stay Another Day'.
