I have a story i really wanna write and publish, but ariana grande is a main character as well as mac miller so it would break the rule stating i can’t use celebrities in my story, I don’t wanna break any rules. However I am wondering if I could publish this story if I change any celebrity names to a name that is way different, but still clear enough for others to tell who i am referencing, For example
could I make Ariana grande’s name in my story " Ariana Gandre " ?
If the answer is no I completely understand and accept it. I’m assuming i can at least write it without publishing it; just for practice
