Kylie and Kendall Jenner Attempt to Trademark Their Names
TMZ reports that Kylie Jenner filed an application last month to trademark her first name to “entertainment in the nature of providing information by means of a global computer network in the fields of entertainment, fashion and pop culture.” Kylie also wants to mark her territory for personal appearances “by a celebrity, actress and model.” Although someone might theoretically use the name “Kylie” with a different font, K.J.’s lawyers could swoop in and argue it creates confusion among consumers. So Kylie Minogue, move over. Kendall has filed an application to trademark her first name for the same purposes. Get the full story here.

Floyd Mayweather Won a Very Boring Fight and Jamie Foxx Butchered the National Anthem
As anyone who shelled out $100 for the pay-per-view will angrily tell you, the Floyd Mayweather /Manny Pacquiao fight was a pretty boring match. Floyd won by avoiding Manny and throwing enough punches to sway the judges in his favor. The decision was unanimous. But Mike Tyson summed up what most people were feeling with this Tweet:

After the fight, Manny said he didn’t want to make excuses, but he had suffered a shoulder injury before the match, and the Nevada State Athletic Commission refused to let him have an anti-inflammatory shot, so he was basically fighting one-handed. Before the fight even happened, somebody put a video up on YouTube that accurately predicted the fight. It’s a parody of the old video game “Punch Out”, but with Pacquaio as Player 1 and Floyd as the boss. Thanks to all the pre-fight hype, pay-per-view revenues topped $400 million. If the fight was bad, Jamie Foxx’s national anthem was worse. Watch:
