We've been saying Chrissy Teigen and Ariana Grand's last names wrong

Chrissy Teigen dropped a bomb on Twitter Sunday night, posting a video that reveals the media and public have been pronouncing her last name wrong for years. "I'm tired of living this lie" the model said on the video. "It's 'TIE-gen.'" She also tweeted explaining that she never corrects people. "They can call me Janet and I won't (correct them)," she wrote. "Wrong order? I’ll eat it. Taxi going to the wrong airport? I’ll change my flight." Recently pop star Ariana Grande also spoke out about people mispronouncing her last name. She said her grandparents pronounced it "GRAND-ee" and that's how she grew up saying it. Most people pronounce it "GRAWN-day."
