It’s official — Megan Thee Stallion now runs the summer as she’s secured ownership of the “Hot Girl Summer” trademark. The smash-hit was a cultural reset launching various marketing campaigns nationwide. So, it comes as no surprise that Megan Thee Stallion wanted to secure ownership. In a 2019 interview with Allure, the rapper said after seeing traction in places including Forever 21, she knew it was time to trademark her coined phrase. “I really didn’t even know that it was gonna catch on how it did… When I saw Wendy’s and Forever 21 saying, ‘Hey, are you having a Hot Girl Summer?’ I was like, ‘Hell no, Forever 21, you’re going to have to pay me.'” But I just wanted to get it trademarked because it’s me. It’s my thing,” Megan Thee Stallion said, according to Allure.
