You’ve Been Pronouncing Chrissy Teigen’s Name Wrong
In today's edition of "I was today-years-old when I learned..."Life...it's full of surprises. Leave it to social media to consistently blow our minds with pointless yet intriguing information that changes our perspective on the world.
In today's news, we've been pronouncing Chrissy Teigen's name wrong for...well...ever.
Because I'm a huge fan of Chrissy, I decided to let the world know of this common error in hopes of fixing it. Turns out, Chrissy's last name is pronounced TIE-gen, not TEE-gen. Tie...like what you wear to a wedding. Not tea, like what you sip on at brunch.
Who knew? Apparently, Chrissy gave up on correcting people a long time ago.
Mind blown? Samsies.
This news comes just a few weeks after Ariana Grande surprised us with her mispronunciation bombshell. Yep, we've been pronouncing her last name wrong, too. Grande recently appeared on the Apple Music show “Beats 1” to promote her new album “Sweetener,” where she revealed that everyone ― including her ― has been saying her last name wrong. According to Ariana's grandfather, her last name is pronounced "Grandy", like the restaurant, not "Grande" like the coffee size. She said her brother changed it sometime along the way to make it sound more "fun", and it just stuck.
Now it's time to take a rest after taking in all of this intense information.
