The world is full of misunderstandings. And, they say life imitates art. Or is it the other way around? Either way, like life, sometimes music can be a total mind-f***.
Check out these super confusing names in music today.
Chance the Rapper
: I was introduced to this charismatic, high energy rapper by a friend of mine, who suggested I check him out. In my mind, she urged me to check out "Chance," the rapper not "Chance The Rapper." In the consequent conversations we had about how great he is, I couldnt figure out why she felt the need to always clarify that this guy Chance was a rapper, I knew that by then!
I Love Makonnen
: Second verse, same as the first; "Do you know 'I Love Makonnen'?" "You love 'Makonnen'!? Who is 'Makonnen'?"
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
:Looks like a typo. Isn't.
Crosses † † †
: Following in the footsteps of the timeless Prince, LA based " † † †" have opted for a symbol instead of a traditional name. Wait, or is their name still "Crosses" because you can say it? Still not sure if the name is the symbol itself or the word then the symbols or just the word, ughhhhhhhhh.
: Okay, this isnt a confusing name, but she just seems like a confused and confusing person! I have no evidence to back this up, but are you with me? Whats going on behind those big eyes, girl?
Snoop Doggy Dogg
: I mean Snoop Dogg. I mean Snoop Lion. I mean Snoopzilla?
: Classic, but still at times confusing! There are LOTS of BANDS, guys. Lots.
: Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy, Puff, Sean Combs...OMFG just pick a name and go with it!
She was Jennifer Lopez, then J.Lo, who sang about being Jenny From The Block. Then she decided she didn't want to be J.Lo anymore and tried to lose the moniker, but it stuck so now...who knows. #whatever
It's not so much her name, but her super confusing face that she keeps hacking up with plastic surgery...jeeezus girl...slow your roll on getting knifed in the face. We barely recognize you anymore!
None of these lads from Manchester were born in '75...so what does The 1975 even mean? According to their Wikipedia page (always on-point and factual...lol) the name comes from the "back page of an old Beat poetry book dated '1 June, The 1975.'"
Who was Eden and Who was Eden's 'crush'? Hopefully someone hot, like Jared Leto.
30 Seconds To Mars
Speaking of Jared...what the hell? Most band names are weird, but his band name just doesn't make sense.
