JAY-Z USES ALIAS X

Rap mogul Jay-Z has a sly way of avoiding swarms of fans when he's out and about - he uses the alias "X".

The hip-hop star, real name Shawn Carter, was recently spotted placing an order at a Starbucks coffee shop in midtown Manhattan, New York - and he was careful not to give away his identity to the barista, who called out orders to customers when they're ready.

A source tells the New York Post the Empire State of Mind hitmaker gave his name as "X" and joked: "I know, it's not a name, it's a letter, I know."

And the trick worked - the rapper reportedly slipped out unnoticed.
