Mary Carey vs. Mariah Carey: Porn Star-Whore vs Pop Star-Whore – The Bastardly Whore Matchup

Before we bring in the Bastardly Jury on this one, let’s get a close look @ case.

Mariah’s Lawyer & Spokeswoman:

“MARY CAREY and MARIAH CAREY share the identical surname and have first names that are very similar,” attorney Robert Becker wrote. And in part because the porn star was seeking the trademark for audio and video recordings, he said, “Confusion between your client and her MARY CAREY trademark and our client and its MARIAH CAREY trademark is therefore likely.”

Becker also demanded that Mary Carey use her name only for “adult entertainment” and that she not sing or perform music. “This is a technical procedure to stop a trademark registration. Mariah Carey has no affiliation with Mary Carey,” said Mariah Carey’s spokeswoman, Leslie Sloane-Zelnik. [Billboard.com]

And here’s Mary Carey….representing herself:

I’m ready to battle Mariah over this because I’ve been Mary Carey for a long time. It’s kind of funny because I’m a porn star and I’ve been being myself for a long time. I think she’s being silly.

My first thought was, does Mariah Carey realize what her lawyer is comparing her to and are they seriously concerned? Do they seriously think the fans are going to be confused?

So with that in hand, please pretend you were on some jury & lay down the law on this one.
