‘Humans Of New York’ Photo Of Girl Named ‘Beyoncé’ Has The Best Comment Section Ever

ADVERTISEMENT

A photo shared by the legendary Humans Of New York street photography project told the story of Beyoncé, a schoolgirl who discussed the difficulties (and advantages) of living with a celebrity name. A deluge of comments then appeared underneath the photo from other people with strange or celebrity names who wanted to show their support.

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.

If you have an interesting or celebrity name, tell us your story in the comments below!

With a name like mine, in a French area of the country, I got teased in school if I was good in French (which I was) and if I sewed I don't.

Every tone deaf guy in school sang Guns n Roses song Patience. Not to mention the joke everyone asks, "Do you have any"? I work as a nanny.
