An XCX-iting time in Singapore
Charli XCX, like all of us, has a history with embarrassing social media usernames.
In fact, her stage name - her real name is Charlotte Emma Aitchison - is based on her former MSN name.
But the 22 year-old singer-songwriter also had a username that well, wasn't nearly as cool as "Charli XCX".

"I had one that I think was Keep Off The Grass XO," she said at a pre-concert press conference on April 22.
She performed in Singapore for the very first time that evening.
"I had a load of embarrassing ones but I think when it came to me deciding on my stage name I kind of panicked and I was like, MSN name (Charli XCX), let's just go with that," she told local media in a press conference before her first gig here on Wednesday (April 22).
Some may know the British pop star best from her collaboration with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea on 2014's Grammy-nominated single Fancy.
But the star has had her own bonafide hit since - Boom Clap, the track taken off her sophomore album Sucker and The Fault In Our Stars soundtrack, was a global hit, reaching the top of the charts in the US, Australia and Canada.
Besides composing her own songs, Charli has also been credited with writing for other artists.
In 2012, she co-wrote and was featured on I Love It, the song that propelled Icona Pop to fame.
Other singers she has written for include fellow Brit James Blunt and Disney actress-singer Bella Thorne.
