237. Monsters Like Having Only One Name, Like Rock Stars and Artists and Clothing Designers

Bjork? B-please. She ain’t got nothing on us.

Cher – let me “cher” something with you.

Prince? You ain’t no prince of darkness.

Adelle. Let me A-tell you somethin’.

The best, bloodiest, and most bone-shattering monsters have been going by one name for literally centuries. You can jump on the one-name bandwagon if you want to, Usher and Rihanna. You can strut around assuming you’re the only one in the world named Beyonce or Seal (okay, maybe you are…). And you can confuse Facebook’s naming requirements by saying, “Nah, man, Cam’ron’s the whole name.”


But you’ll never be One-Name Monster famous.
