Most of us are familiar with the epic street photography project, Humans of New York. Recently one of their projects told a story about a schoolgirl who shared her difficulties of living with the celebrity name Beyoncé. What happened in the comments section after her photo was posted was a mass amount of support from others who have celebrity names or just plain strange names.
“Sometimes I hate my name because it always draws attention to me, and I’m not a very social person,” she told Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York. “When the teacher started calling attendance, I got really nervous, because every time people learn my name is Beyoncé, somebody starts singing ‘Single Ladies.’ And some did, of course. But the second day of school wasn’t too bad. Because everyone knew my name.“
Here are the comments:
