Justin Bieber Changes His Name & It's Totally Bizarre

Eye Roll 6

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber has not only changed his entire personality, he's now apparently changed his name. And, no, not into a symbol a la Prince. The Biebs may now be going by the nom de guerre of ... Bizzle. Fo' shizzle! Biebs changed his name to "Bizzle" on Instagram, but then less than a day later, he changed it back. The name still remains below his real one though. "Bizzle" -- at least according to Beliebers on Twitter -- has long been a sort of "secret" name that only the most Belieberrific fan knew about. But this name change does not surprise me. It makes his transformation into douchebag totally complete.

Some other celebrities who changed their names mid-fame are:

Prince, who changed it to some sort of symbol. Surprisingly, that never really caught on.

Jay Z, who dropped the hyphen from his name. No idea why.

Snoop Dogg, who upgraded to Snoop Lion.

Puff Daddy, who morphed into P. Diddy, and then just Diddy. (Possibly the only rapper whose name change was for the better.)

Cat Stevens, hit songmaker from the 1970s, who almost drowned, converted to Islam and then changed his name to Yusuf Islam.

Some names that Bieber may have considered before settling on Bizzle:

Bozzle (which means "screw-up" in urban-speak)

He is so annoying. I thought he was retiring or has he just been to busy gettin arrested? Kids do not need to be looking at him as a role model! They need to keep him off tv so he can stop influencing younger generations.

Justin needs to grow up,take responsibility for hisvfame and influence, dissing your fsmily by chsnging your name doesn't set a good example, and figure out how you wsnt to be remembered. Changing his name will not make any difference. Everyone eill always know who you were. You csnnot change your stupidity changing your name.
