By its definition, an alter ego is a second (or sometimes third or fourth) self that is distinct from a person’s original, normal personality. Kind of like Superman and Clark Kent or Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Some celebrities today have so much fabulousness, sometimes they need to take a long break from being themselves and become another distinct person. When you cannot be yourself, why not be someone else?!

One of our favorite examples right now in the office? Well, that would be Walter White and Heisenberg. A lot of us here are huge Breaking Bad fans and we are excited (and a bit sad) for the series finale on Sunday night. Heisenberg is definitely one of the craziest alter egos, but what are some others?
Let’s think. Of course there is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. Don’t know that name? You probably know her by her alter ego – Lady Gaga. Other greats are Beyonce as Sasha Fierce, David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, Paul Reubens as Pee-wee Herman, and Andy Kaufman as Tony Clifton.
What would your alter ego be and what kind of name necklace would you wear with it?
Oh, and are you tuning in for the series finale of Breaking Bad?
