Real Celeb Names You Probably Don't Know
So THAT'S how John Legend got his name. A lot can be said with a name—especially in Hollywood. Choosing the right one could potentially make or break a career in showbiz. It'll either help fans easily remember you or could result in you blending in with the crowd. Opt for something too complicated and people might not be able to pronounce it, which could mean trouble come awards season. It's not as simple of a decision as you'd think! For that reason, stars put a lot of thought into the choice. One of the biggest trends is going by a middle name. Maybe it sounds better (Meghan Markle does have a nice ring to it!), or perhaps it's just more unique (there's no denying Ashton Kutcher is more memorable than Christopher Kutcher). Other celebrities choose something more sentimental, like paying tribute to a late family member or honoring a mother or grandmother's maiden name. And when all else fails, a childhood nickname does the trick (we're looking at you, Miley). From royals to Grammy-winning singers and everyone in between, your favorite star's real name might surprise you. Learn all about how celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Wilde, Katy Perry, and others ended up being called what you know them as today.
The Top 10 Food Trends That Are Going To Pop Off In 2023, According To Whole Foods
I 'm already hungry AF. If you're looking for a sign to mix things up in your diet in the new year, this is it. Whole Foods Market has revealed their top 10 anticipated food trends for 2023, and I highly recommend a look through to see which products they expect to skyrocket in popularity. This is the eighth time that more than 50 Whole Foods Market staff members (called the "Trends Council") have come together to release its annual trend predictions. And the products weren’t just picked out of a hat—these decisions are based on lots of research into customer preference, product sourcing, and workshops with different brands. Some trends are based on actual themes that are rising in popularity (like "Climate-Conscious Callouts"), while others are focused on singular products (like an "Avocado Oil Craze"). You can expect the list to range from environmental preservation efforts, to reimagined comfort foods, and funky, new nutrient-packed ingredients. "We’re thrilled to see things like baked goods with up-cycled pulp from plant-based milks and ingredients like farmed kelp continue to gain popularity," says Sonya Gafsi Oblisk, Whole Foods' chief marketing officer. "From product labels touting sustainable practices to poultry and egg suppliers who are leading the way in animal welfare, many of this year’s trends predictions showcase brands on a mission to make a true impact." Ahead, check out the 10 food trends that you can expect to pop off on the shelves of Whole Foods next year.
