Sure, you might have already known that Drake was going by his middle name (to shake the Jimmy Brooks image or perhaps because the first name Aubrey wasn’t tough enough), but do you know what Moby’s real name is? What about Skrillex? Well, Mental Floss has a way of piquing our interest about things we’ve never even thought about, and their list of celebrities’ real names is pretty darn interesting.
