Kim Kardashian, Beyonce NOT Competing Over Kids’ Lines, Despite Claim
“Beyonce Launching Blue Ivy Products: Competes With Kim Kardashian – Kardashian Kids Clothing Line At Risk?” Celeb Dirty Laundry asks in a headline. The accompanying article begins, “It looks like Beyonce and Blue Ivy are giving Kim Kardashian and Kanye West a good run for their money. There’s a new report that says Bey is looking to launch her own kids’ line with her 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. In fact, Beyonce and Jay-Z trademarked the young tot’s name for future use in beauty, fashion and electronics.”
“Of course, many fans couldn’t help but notice that Beyonce’s move to trademark Blue Ivy’s name comes only a few days after Kim Kardashian revealed that she and Kanye West are developing a kids’ clothing line,” says the webloid. The site goes on to wonder, “So does this mean that Blue Ivy and North West will be competing with one another in the fashion and style world?”
Continues the outlet, “Even though they are only toddlers, some believe that might be the case. Beyonce is using her daughter’s name to help make a mark on the world of kids’ fashion while Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are doing the same thing. Time will only tell if one line ends up being more successful than the other.”
Well, it’s virtually a guarantee that one line is going to be “more successful,” as it would be a tremendous coincidence if both had the same exact profit and revenue. But there is no need to pit Kardashian and Beyonce against each other. When news broke last week about the singer trademarking her daughter’s name, the timing had nothing to do with the reality star revealing she had a children’s clothing line in the works.
After all, neither star is the first celebrity to use their kids as a way to get into the retail industry. CDL is simply trying to make this look like a feud, but that’s a tabloid fantasy divorced from reality. Sadly, this isn’t the first time the stars’ innocent children have been used to fuel such a narrative. Last November, OK! actually claimed North and Blue Ivy were in a feud, at 3 and 4 years old, respectively, because of Kanye West’s issues with Jay Z. It’s all just ridiculous.
