30 Celebrities Whose Real Names Are Totally Different

There are tons of celebs out there whose stage names are different than their birth names.

While some stars have changed just their last names, just their first names, or maybe adopted their middle name as their first name instead, there are also some stars with completely different names altogether!

One of the main reasons stars have to change their names is because there already is a working entertainer with the same name. Some unions only allow one person to join the union with a specific name, so if your name is taken, you have to come up with a new one.

Taylor Swift just surprised fans by releasing her brand new song “The Archer,” which will be track five on her upcoming album Lover.

The 29-year-old singer dropped the new song while doing an Instagram Live on Tuesday (July 23).

“There’s a vast part of this album that I worked with Jack Antonoff on, he is phenomenal… I wanted to show you a song that we worked on together,” she said.

Taylor revealed some of the Easter Eggs that she’s dropped to tease the song, including the moment in the “You Need to Calm Down” video in which Hayley Kiyoko shot an arrow at the number five.

“It’s not the next single. It’s just a song that I love on the album.. I haven’t made a video for it or anything. This is just a glimpse into another side of the album that I wanted to show you,” she added. She also said the song is one of the most vulnerable ones on the album.

You can download the song now on iTunes and stream it here via YouTube.
