Los Angeles (AP) -- In a surprise move this morning, popular internet blogger The American Mastodon has decided to simplify his name. "We had to move the American out of the equation. It was for the fans. We had to simplify it. Mastodon is more personal. We are entering into the age of Mastodon. It's a new era," the blogger said in a recent interview with "Access Hollywood" to promote his upcoming hosting duties on his blog, The American Mastodon.
Mastodon — whose monikers have included Masty, the AM and Puffy, says Mastodon is "a little bit more personal. I've let down my guard. I'm fully exposed. We are going to have a lot of fun with it. It is the return of hip-hop, rock 'n' roll, all that shit. I'm a superstar and everyone's gonna call me Mastodon. I'm going to start talking in the third person everything. From now on, that's how I'm gonna roll."
