The 40-year-old reality star’s sisters could not let her get off that easily, though. “The sun is shining / Hooray, hooray / Have a good day,” Kim, 39, and Khloé, 35, sang in unison.
The moment was inspired by Jenner’s “Rise and Shine” ditty, which went viral in October after the Kylie Cosmetics CEO, 22, sang the tune to wake up 21-month-old daughter Stormi — whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Travis Scott — in a YouTube video.
Many celebrities have recreated the song since, including Ariana Grande. The pop star, 26, asked, “Can I sample?” via her Instagram Story, to which Jenner replied: “Yes, yes you can @arianagrande. As long as I’m in the music video.”
Jenner later revived the meme-worthy moment for her brother Rob Kardashian’s Instagram account. She silently mouthed the words in a video posted by the 32-year-old in October. “Rise and shine,” he added in the caption.
The Life of Kylie alum also capitalized on the popularity, dropping merchandise with the phrase “riiise and shiiine.”
Jenner even filed legal paperwork to trademark the catchphrase. The move would allow her to use it on apparel and cosmetics. Twitter had mixed reactions about the news. One user wrote that she “cannot trademark a phrase that has been used since before you were born,” while another tweeted, “Everyone was bugging [Jenner] to do a rise and shine palette and now that she’s working on it everyone says they don’t want it.”
A third user pointed out: “I don’t think celebrities should be able to trademark everyday phrases. Like, Kylie Jenner did not coin the phrase rise and shine.”
