Amerie Changes Her Name To Ameriie

Amerie has officially changed the spelling of her name by an extra “I” to her name.

The “1 Thing” singer now goes by Ameriie!

She explained to Rap-Up, “I operate on vibes and intuition, and I believe everything is energy; the vibration of the double I is right for me. Slightly different spelling, completely same pronunciation!”

Ameriie, who is engaged to her longtime manager Lenny Nicholson, has been busy recording her new album, Cymatika Vol. 1 (named after the study of visible sound and vibration).

You can follow Ameriie on Twitter @ItsAmeriie!

    She’s beyond gorgeous. And I’m such a fan that I would have noticed the difference…. by myself. Ha. This is not newsworthy. But oh well, good to know. I’m looking forward to hearing her new stuff. She’s SO underrated. Her music is amazing and her voice is unique and she’s simply edgy, original and beautiful. I wish she’d get more props.

  • Tori

    Well that’s stupid,Their no point in adding an extra i……Amerie look’s better on paper and it’s said the same way,And everybodys just going to say amerie anyways…Fail

  • Franck

  • saraa formerly sara

  • Iris

    Sad attempt to stay relevant? it looks stupid with 2 i’s anyway. Focus more on your “music” instead of trying to get attention with crap like this

  • lol

    Corny! I had to google “1 thing” seeing that’s what you said she was known for and it was like 6 years ago. Uh, why are you even posting about her?

  • Jenna

    I still have no idea who she is…

  • nhu

    This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Who the hell changes their name to be the same name? Is it supposed to be different now that has an extra i?

  • Vratnica News

    I think she need to add an “e” at the end of her name.
    She’ll be more than cool. (+20% coolness) ;)

  • Allie

    Why did this girl leave her Ivy League education to get into a business where she has to do stuff like this to be relevant?!


  • Slig

  • Ankka

    people need to open their eyes and recognize real talent!

  • toffeepenny

    Phonetically the double i is pronounced (as in ‘it’). So her name would be said!

  • ?

    Maybe it’s not her passport name, and someone else had the same stage name…so she had to change it.
