You've probably read and heard the names Ariana Grande and Chrissy Teigen before, but have they been pronounced correctly?

It turns out she gave up correcting people and chose to just adopt the wrong pronunciation herself even correcting people to the wrong version when they say it right. "I'm bored to loss of life in residing this lie", she said in the video.

When one other Twitter person asserted that even Teigen says "tee-gen", the Lip Sync Combat cohost replied, "I do know". The model went on to admit that she even corrects strangers who pronounce her last name the way it was intended. I even correct people when they say it correctly.

What have you been pronouncing Chrissy's name like? "They can call me Janet and I won't".

While we can't relate to millions of people mispronouncing our surname on a daily basis, we can sympathize with Teigen's all-too-relatable take on keeping a cringe-worthy conversation at bay. The 32-365 days-veteran says everyone publicizes her name contaminated, in conjunction with herself, which she acknowledges is "effed up". Imperfect advise? I'll eat it. Taxi going to the contaminated airport? Vilailuck simply and hilariously replies from the kitchen, "Yep!" (As Us Weekly reported, Teigen has confirmed her parents are still married, but that her father lives just 10 minutes away from her household.) While Vilailuck is Thai, the name Teigen is Norwegian.
