Gene Simmons is resolute that he has no regrets about his attempt earlier this year to trademark the “devil horns” hand gesture. Simmons spoke with the Windsor Star and said that the application, which he abandoned just two weeks after trying to register it, is something he doesn’t feel bad about.

“I regret nothing,” Simmons told the outlet. Wake up every morning and let your conscience be your guide…People said, ‘You can’t do that.’ Actually, b***h -— I can. I can do anything I want to do.”

Simmons went on to say, “Did you know I own the money bag logo? The dollar sign with the bag of money. I own all kinds of things. I own ‘motion pictures’ as a trademark. Anyone who thinks that’s silly—the silliest thing I’ve ever done is wear more makeup and higher heels than your mommy.”

It is worth noting that while the US Patent and Trademark Office records do in fact show that he has the trademark to the money bag logo, he does not own “motion pictures” as a trademark. Rather, he owns the trademark for the word “Motion” as a title for use of “Entertainment services, namely, production and distribution of theatrical motion pictures” and other forms of filmed entertainment.
