Best Nickname – 2013 PopCrush Celebrity Yearbook Superlatives

2013 PopCrush Yearbook Celebrity Superlatives

Everyone has at least one nickname, though some are obviously much nicer than others. Some people have long first names so they lop off the last couple syllables, while others need to add some pizzazz to their nakesake so they’ll abbreviate and add prefixes and/or suffixes until a sufficient cool factor has been reached. We’re taking superlative votes and want to know: Which pop star do you think deserves the title of Best Nickname?

Some monikers have backstories behind them, like Lady Gaga‘s Mother Monster and Nicki Minaj‘s Harajuku Barbie, which were given to the pop stars by their devoted fans. On the other hand, there are a few pop divas whose pet names demonstrate their superiority, like Queen Bey (Beyonce) and Godney (Britney Spears).

Other nicknames are obvious abbreviations like turning Christina Aguilera into Xtina, Rihanna into RiRi and Jennifer Lopez into J. Lo.

On the other hand, there’s always those few nicknames that make a lot less sense, sort of like Harry Styles’ Hazza or Lil Wayne‘s Tunechi.

Then, of course, there’s the popular tradition of sticking “-zzy” or “-ezy” at the end of the first couple letters of one’s name. Case in point — Breezy (Chris Brown) and Drizzy (Drake).

When all else fails, just add ‘the’ to the beginning of your name for ultimate cool points — something along the lines of Justin Bieber‘s ‘The Biebs.’

So, who wins your vote for Best Nickname? Vote below, and remember you can vote once per hour! Polls close Friday, June 21 at 12PM ET.
