Kanye West Wants To Change His Name To 'Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West'

Not liking your birth name is an issue I'm sure a lot of people have. I think my birth name should have been Princess, but hey, ya win some, ya lose some, right?!!!

However, when you're a celebrity, you can pretty much do whatever you want, which OFTEN means changing your name!!!

Just take Sean Combs aka Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Puffy, or Diddy, for example.

Kanye West is the latest celeb to want to rebrand with a new name and honestly, it's a lot.

According to The Independent, Kanye has been trying to legally change his name to this mouthful of a title to prove a point.

"When people say it’s crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y’all understand exactly what it is… It will be on the license plate."

When he told the crowd this at the fifth annual Fast Company Innovation Festival in New York earlier this week, they began laughing.

"What y’all laughing at?" he asked.

"We would create so many jobs! I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk."

He continued, "When you see headlines saying Kanye’s crazy — one in three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can’t say nothing, they got no opinion, they’re so scared!"
