If some celebrities’ names sound too good to be true, it’s likely because they are.
Believe it or not, many celebs change their names when they enter the entertainment industry. Whether fans have a hard time pronouncing it or there is a childhood nickname that has lingered over the years, many famous faces swap their monikers.
Some stars, like Miley Cyrus and Frank Ocean, have even legalized their name change. As Frank Ocean sees it: “None of us is our name. If you don’t like your name, change your name.”
And it seems that many other singers and actors agree with him.
Jennifer Aniston, Lady Gaga and even Jamie Foxx reinvented themselves by switching years ago, and now it’s strange to think they could use anything other than their stage names.
