Kanye West Announces New Name

Kanye West is going to pull a Diddy and change his name. And what will his chosen name be? Martin Louis the King Jr. No, we're not kidding.

Kanye, who is in Paris for Fashion Week, debuted his red Louis Vuitton sneaker collection earlier this month and admits the pride he felt from designing the shoe inspired him to change his name.

We really hope he's joking about his new name, because he'll never hear the end of it. Either way, check out the vlog he posted talking about his new name.
