Beyonce gets sued


NEW YORK (Reuters) - The singer Beyonce Knowles has been sued by Abercrombie & Fitch Co over her intent to use its "Fierce" trademark on a fragrance to be launched in early 2010.

In a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio, Abercrombie said Knowles' plan "poses a likelihood of confusion" for consumers that could deprive it of control over a mark it has used since 2002, and perhaps cost it sales.

Representatives of Knowles were not immediately available for comment.

Abercrombie said it has sold more than $190 million worth of fragrance under the Fierce name, and expects $64 million of sales in 2009.

The New Albany, Ohio-based company said the fragrance gives off a "signature" scent that is regularly dispersed in its 350 retail stores through scent machines or by employees.

"A&F's intent is that all garments that leave the store have the Fierce scent attached to them," the company said.

The fragrance maker Coty Inc has signed an agreement to market Knowles' fragrance.

CB sending indirect shots at RiRi?

After hearing  the song “Famous Girl.” a few times.(yes i have it on repeat lol) some of the lines stuck out to me a lil bit that sounded a lil indirect.  the lines are as follows: "Since I thought I found my woman/ There were other guys who thought the same thing about it/ Like damn, you let me down, down, down/ 'Cause you're famous, girl, for breaking hearts." "Drake would say that you're the best he ever had. Rumors come and go but you keep a shadow. Everywhere you go it follows." "Sorry B i dont where no halo/ u were the first to play the game though/Sorry i busts the windows out your car" "Too much pressure I wish I was frozen. Seems we lost our way. I hope you're happy being famous girl." Bam's Commentary: Maybe its just me idk but this is just my thoughts. But that Sorry B line gets me cause rumor has it that he did bust the window out of RiRi car in barbados. plus if ya listen he says watch the blogs t
