The War on Christmas

Then there’s a diva smackdown which started when Mariah Carey decided to trademark the title Queen of Christmas due to her hit “All I Want For Christmas” (which someone else claims to have written).  This has enraged Darlene Love – who recorded “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” back in 1963.  Since 1986, Love sang her song every year for David Letterman, who termed her the Queen of Christmas – although I don’t believe anyone filled out that pesky paperwork.  When Darlene heard of Carey’s intentions, she made a statement of her own: “Is it true that Mariah trademarked Queen of Christmas?  What does that mean, that I can’t use the title?  David Letterman officially declared me the Queen of Christmas 29 years ago, a year before she released ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ and at 81 years of age, I’m NOT changing anything.  I’ve been in the business for 52 years, have earned it and can still hit those notes!  If Mariah has a problem, call David Letterman or my lawyer!”
