You don’t become a massive pop star without going after what you want. And right now, Mariah Carey wants to be the “Queen of Christmas.”

So much so that she has attempted to trademark the moniker.

But not so fast, say several other queens who have made a killing by belting out Christmas tunes.

Granted, Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You is the most streamed holiday song in Spotify history. And her 1994 album Merry Christmas is one of the best-selling Christmas albums of all time.

But that doesn’t make her the Queen of Christmas, according to Elizabeth Chan and Darlene Love, two other Christmas crooners.

“Christmas has come way before any of us on earth, and hopefully will be around way after any of us on earth,” Chan told Variety“And I feel very strongly that no one person should hold onto anything around Christmas or monopolize it in the way that Mariah seeks to in perpetuity. 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.”

For the record, Chan’s 2021 album is actually called Queen of Christmas, and she has been using the title since 2014. We think.

Meanwhile, Love took to Facebook to say she’s been the real Queen of Christmas since long before Carey. Given that Love is 81, and Carey is 53, Love may have a pretty strong case.

“David Letterman officially declared me the Queen of Christmas 29 years ago, a year before she released All I Want For Christmas Is You,” Love posted.

“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!”

Love added that if Carey doesn’t like it, she can call Letterman, “or my lawyer.”

With all this in mind, maybe the forever-talented Carey can come up with a new title. As far as we know, Diva of Christmas is still available.

What do you think?

  1. A Christmas “title” belongs to no one! Can’t we leave the last vestage of Christmas alone, as in the very name, without miring it in commercialism. The ego of anyone wanting to be called the Queen of Christmas, is enough to cancel that person from my Christmas list!
