Yesterday, when Walrus (formerly Seal) finally emerged from a closet where he’d locked himself since divorcing ex-wife Heidi Klum, he had a revelation and a name-change.
On first reentering the real world after two months in a closet, the legendary singer-songwriter was shaving his beard and suddenly felt inspired while looking at a full mustache in the mirror. “Inspired by Michael Jackson, I decided to take a closer look at the man in the mirror.” Walrus told media at a press release. “And I didn’t see Seal anymore.” After pausing for dramatic effect, he added, “I saw… Walrus.”
Walrus is reportedly in good spirits, and headed to the studio next month to record his first album released as ‘Walrus,’ with the inspired title, “There Are Other Fish in the Sea.”
