*Cardi B obviously knows her value and is making moves to capitalize on it. The latest is that she’s getting set to lockdown her famous catch-phrase, “Okurrr.” Look for it to be used in conjuction with a gang of upcoming products.
The rapper filed to trademark “Okurrr” for merchandising purposes, reports The Blast. Don’t be surprised if you see the expression on paper goods, like cups and posters, as well as a clothing line featuring pants, shirts and hoodies, etc.
Cardi, who described her catchphrase as a “cold pigeon in New York City,” to Jimmy Fallon, has obviously noticed how popular the word has become and wants to make sure nobody else can cash in.
By the way, “Okurrr” will officially have 3 R’s … even though Cardi also made sure to file documents for a version with only 2 R’s … for the trolls, The Blast noted.
*In other entertainment news, Tamron Hall recently let folks know that she had to set the situation straight at ABC regarding her upcoming talk show
“When I came to [an early] meeting to discuss my new show . . . there were only men in the room,” she told the audience at Rolling Stone’s Women Shaping the Future brunch Wednesday. “And I had to say, ‘Sorry to tell you, but we are going to have a lot of women on staff. Sorry, but I don’t want to just talk to you men all day. We need some women in here.’ ”
As we also reported Hall revealed earlier this month that, at 48 years old, she’s not only married, but she’s pregnant, too!
She said she’s received a lot of support online — but she’s also received some hurtful criticism from Instagram users because of her age.
Hall’s new self-titled show premieres Sept. 9.
