    Like, have you seen the one where she recreates a scene from Clueless with her son?


    Ugh! As if... I wouldn't join TikTok. 😉💛😘 #Clueless #AsIf

    She'll always be Cher Horowitz to me.

    Anyway, Alicia's just dropped yet another incredible TikTok — one where she explains that we've been pronouncing her name wrong for years.

    Using the "Tell me what your name is and then tell me what people mispronounce it as," TikTok challenge as a prompt, Alicia says, "My name is Ali-see-yuh... Not Alee-Sha."


    #stitch with @kesha & @mahoganylox: Just an FYI... it’s Ali-SEE-yuh 😉😘

    As if!

    This is just like when we learned Justin Theroux’s last name is pronounced "Tha-roo," and Chrissy Teigen said her surname is "Tie-gan," only a million times worse. I've been saying "Alee-Sha" for, like, 25 years.

    Is your mind blown? Are you totally buggin'?
