Singer Amerie has baffled fans by announcing she has changed her stage name - to AMERIIE.
The 1 Thing hitmaker has added an extra "i" to her first name to reflect "positive energy".
Explaining her new moniker to Rap-Up.com she says, ā€œI operate on vibes and intuition, and I believe everything is energy; the vibration of the double I is right for me. Slightly different spelling, completely same pronunciation!ā€
