SANTOGOLD = SANTIGOLD
Yeah, she did it.
No, it’s not at drastic as Puffy becoming P. Diddy, or Prince changing his name to an unpronounceable male/female symbol, but it is what it is, she is now Santigold. To give her the benefit of the doubt, she probably changed it because she got tired of people misspelling her name…I know I did the first time I wrote it. Or maybe it’s because she is being sued by Santo Rigatuso. A singer/gold chain retailer/”science-fiction space wrestling movie” promoter (odd, I know, but see the video below), that claims he has been using the name Santo Gold since 1983. Who knows, but this is what her people are saying…
“Santogold is now Santigold. She’s not telling you why, that’s just how it is. No unpronounceable symbol, no numbers where they shouldn’t be, no random capitalization, just plain ass Santigold so remember that. “
I know she just came of a tour with The Ting Tings, maybe we can expect a remix to “That’s Not My Name”? Oh, and don’t forget to grab your free copy the Lil’ Wayne & Drake remix of Santigold’s “Unstoppable” over at RCRD LBL.
