Amerie Changes Her Name; Does Anybody Care??

| Filed under: Music MinuteWacky, Tacky & True


This makes no sense!

Singer Amerie has officially changed the spelling of her name, adding an additional I to her name.

Amerie, or AmeriIe, told our sources that the additional letter reflects positive energey and gives her name a "very international, worldly sound."

She further explains, "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!"

This just sounds like a STOOPID PR move to promote her upcoming album Cymatika Vol. 1.

    And the additional letter added to the word "energy" was also a STOOPID move too. "positive energey" Learn to spell, nig.

    YOU are stupid Barbara. Amerie is very talented

  3. 3

    WOW -_-

    What's wrong with a simple PR move? It's not like she's caught up in some major sex or photo scandal. Several artists have gone through some minor name changes (Santogold —–> Santigold). I don't know why you're giving her shit for it.

    Never even heard of this person. What a fucking moron loser. Her music must really suck, because this is the only reason I've heard of her.

  6. 6

    who ?

  7. 7

    She's black/Korean. Maybe its an ancient Korean thing. Who knows. Whatever floats your boat.

    I care.I also felt the aura of positive energy ,come to me right thru the computer!
    It was like the axis were alinged perfectly with the Cosmos.And the gravitational pull of the tide that causes the "shores of life" to recreate the entire universe with all its planets to create polar opposites all because of one letter.The only way I can explain it in mortal terms is from the Beach Boys song "Good Vivebrations" and give Lindsay Lohan the strength to endure the daily beating from Mel Gibson and torture that she will have during abstanice from Sam and drugs.Open your mind and believe Perez and just mabey one day you will be sitting in a chair next to Randy Jackson,with 35 million people watching as you shout out the words.It's like this dog……

    dumb. she's barely relevant as it is and now she just made it worse. her music never sells anyway but what a stupid move

  10. 10

    who is she?

  11. 11

    How does it give it a "very international, worldly sound" if it's the same pronunciation? Looks like someone didn't finish high school. Goodbye, your 15 minutes are over…NEXT!

  12. 12

    ha i forgot she existed until i read this post

  18. 18

    Considering I've never heard of this chick before and now you are reporting the "STOOPID PR move to promote her upcoming album" I'd say that it worked fine.

  19. 19


    D= ????


  20. 20

    Loved the song "One Thing" btw. Great song! =D

  21. 21

    yeah…maybe NOW you will sell records…..

  22. 22

    One hit wonder?

  23. 23

    Re: YoungTaurus – That was a not a PR move. She was forced to change her name because of copyright issues or something like that. There was a jewlery store or man who sells jewlery called Santo Gold

  24. 24

    and on that note…..she is pleased to announce she will be dating Jon Gosselin - …………….lmao……….

  25. 25

    Well, obviously you care. You did post about it silly buns!!!

  26. 26

    Amerie is very underrated. if this gets her attention them im all for it.

  27. 27

    The only thing that would save her never taken off career is if she changed her name too Beyonce, lol. Since when does she have light brown skin? this chick is very dark skin so I guess she's bleaching her skin like RiRi did. Girls you are not fair skin like Beyonce and Christina Milan. No matter Amerie still has an ugly nose.

  28. 28

    i loved how you called it a "STOOPID PR move" yet you promoted the album yourself, i dont get the extra "I" thing, but i love her music

  29. 29

    If you don't know who she is, she had a top ten hit in '05 with "1 Thing." The song was a critic's favorite as well. And despite her 1st two albums going gold, Sony pretty much fucked her over with her third release, and it only got a limited release here in the US, and she pretty much fell off the radar after that, even though she did have an album out in 09.

    Re: Perezismyboy/girl
    She's always had a light complexion. She's Asian and Black.

  31. 31

    Re: Perezismyboy/girl – Don't be hateful. She is half Korean, That is why her old nose looked the way it did, and she has a lighter complexion. Her new nose looks good.

  32. 32

    Ok, if that's what she wants to do.

  33. ass says – reply to this


    I've got a better question. Who the fuck was Amerie?

  34. 34

    i think she just added the extra i to make it look cute. u know how ppl sometimes type in a n extra i to words.
    ameriie. lol.

  35. 35

    I find it so funny, in a pathetic way, that Mario, who changed his name to "Perez Hilton" would criticize someone else for changing their name…then say it's all just for publicity and post a story about it, giving her just what she wants.

    FFS Mario…are you that much of an idiot? Oh yeah, you are…sorry.

  36. 36

    The name change is a reflection of her extreme simplicity, inanity, and an utter lack of creativity. She sounds more sTUpiD as a result. I hope her idiocy has a more international sounding name.

  38. 38

    Who is she???? And…who cares?????

  39. Genn says – reply to this


    She looks like one of those Kardashians.

  40. 40

    Who the fuck is Amerie

  41. 41

    Re: Genn – i agree with u, amerie looks like kourtney kardashian, the one who had a baby. at 1st i thought it WAS kourtney haha

  42. 42


  43. 43

    She looks like an uglier version of Courtney Kardashian.

  44. 44

    She stinks. No talent. Who cares? Get lost already.

  45. 45

    who is she?? seriously?

  46. 46

    Ameriie is not promoted like every other artist. I had no idea she was working on another studio album. I think Ameriie music career is slowly dying each year.
