Showbiz’s One Name Celebrities True Identity
Stardom lights up when you’ve made it and everyone knows you by one name, but they are stage names and their real names are…?
We find some with a one name identity they took from their real name but for the most part they always look for a hook that sucks us in.
A brief rundown of some one name celebrities you may know:
- Pink – Alecia Beth Moore
- Adele – Adele Laurie Blue Adkins
- Jay-Z – Shawn Corey Carter
- Ke$ha – Kesha Rose Sebert
- Usher – Usher Terry Raymond IV
- Will.i.am – William James Adams Jr.
- Bono (U2) – Paul David Hewson
- Flea (U2) – Michael Peter Balzary
- Gotye – Wouter “Wally” DeBacker
- Ice- T – Tracy Morrow
- Ludacris – Christopher Brian bridges
- Drake – Aubrey Drake Graham
Seems not uncommon as children growing up we end up with nicknames that seem to stick throughout our life. I personally have had several as both an on-air personality and growing up.
- Hawaiian Chicken
- The Nitefly
- Marky – Mark
- The Katt
Those names have stuck with me depending where I am that people know me (Mark Alan) as them. What is your nickname and how did you get it? (Would love to read your comments below).
