2. Lil’ Bow Wow and all the other Lil’s
Whoever the first Lil’ was, they messed it up for everyone. If you follow the rules of apostrophes, Lil’ Bow Wow, Lil’ Kim and the rest of the giant Lil’ family should actually spell it Li’l’ due to the location of the omitted letters. But that looks weird, so … ugh, we’re just going to have to deal. (They’ll eventually drop the lil’ anyway.)
Nope. Just… nope. You can’t put a money sign in your name, even if it does look like an S. Does everybody else feel the need to do a cash-drawer sound in the middle of her name? Keh-chaching-HA? Yeah, let’s call her that weird sound until she changes it.
She goes by Pink but writes it as P!nk. End punctuation should identify the end of a part of text, which isn’t really happening here. Since there is no universally-agreed-upon sound for an exclamation mark, we imagine it sounding like someone trying to say the word “pink” while being punched in the stomach.
Proper nouns (like names) should be capitalized. Even still, will.i.am has done cool things with his name. His real name is William and he managed to break down that into a “sentence” that still makes sense (with questionable syntax, but still)!
6. Snoop Dogg
Snoop, you weren’t even challenging us. Dog is misspelled, obviously. Though we must admit that “I’m the motherf***ing dee-oh-double-gee” sounds way better than “I’m the motherf***ing dee-oh-single-gee.” In any case, that’s all water under the bridge since he’s Snoop Lion now.
7. Ringo Starr
Darling Ringo, we dig your name. We really do. But we don’t get why you had to add the second “R” to your last name. Richard Starkey (your birth name) doesn’t have two R’s. You had a golden opportunity there – not many rock stars can shorten their name to “Star.” Oh, well.
