The ‘star system’ requires the artist to a name or nickname that you can remember easily and that will endure out from the crowd of ‘celebrities’ that the industry throws every year. That is why, many chose to start their career by giving side to their first name, and sought a designation much more eye-catching and attractive. In many cases, the decision is even more justified when the figure is called Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’connor and would prefer to shorten everything to just Lorde. Although there are also those who resist it, look at the example of Emily Ratajkowski or Nicole Scherzinger. Although many of the famous that have changed their real names they have only modified part of your name or played with the same.
It is the case of Miley Cyrus, Meghan Markle, Tom Cruise, Lady Gaga —ok, this was obvious that it was not called so— or, without going much further, Pastora Soler AKA Pili. Learn this list by heart if some day you have to call for the street to Maluma, it will be long before the return if exclamas José Luis.
