Is this considered more or less egregious than changing your pronouns?

Ye(ah), who cares, I dont LOL!

...okay, I guess.

I just imagine this would cause a lot of headaches for filling out official forms. Especially web-based forms which are not designed to take mononyms into account. Seems like a lot of extra unnecessary hassle.

Too many syllables, too many letters.

I won't remember that.

I remember when Prince formerly known as , well Prince shortened his name and it actually shortened his life. Keep away from drugs, and get back with booty Kardashian. You two were good together.

How is that textbook narcissism? I believe he is doing it for business. YE is a very easy brand to remember. More power to him.
