Lorde Refuses To Give Her Fans A Nickname Like One Direction, Miley Cyrus, & Katy Perry!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLordeGIFs

lorde fan nickname

One Direction has their Directioners…

Miley Cyrus has her Smilers…

And Katy Perry has her KatyCats!

So what do you call the loyal fans of Lorde??

According to the 17-year-old songstress, you call them NOTHING!

Lorde wants nothing to do with the pop fans name game, because according to her, grouping together your many admirers makes ZERO sense! She’s here to make music, not start a cult!

Lorde explained:

"I find it grating to lump everyone into a really awkward, pun-centric name. People joke about it on Twitter, 'You should call us The Disciples.' Never! I have discouraged it. I've tweeted multiple times, 'No fan name, I do not condone this.’"

OK, OK. We won’t force you to name us, Sweet Lorde! But just know, we LOVE you!

And even though she’s not down for her followers having their own cute groupie name, she has no problem being considered a pop star!

She admitted:

"People think pop's filthy and shameful. I love pop music! I don't think it's right to shit on a genre just because some stuff about it isn't perfect. Pop is really powerful and if I'm a pop star then I'll be that to the best of my ability.”

Well so far, you’re CRUSHING it as a pop star, gurl!

Srsly though, The Disciples?? How good does that sound?! Maybe rethink it.

LOL!

    Naming your fans is stupid. Ever since Gaga started her little monsters bs
    every pop star has followed since.

    funny i always called fandoms cults…it brings out the absolute worst in people for simply not agreeing with them.It perpetuates cyber bullying. Mature of her to realize this as a teenager.

    Re: Gonzo – Gaga was not the first. Mariah Carey started it all with her "Lambs". Toni Braxton followed with "Tigers". ;)

    I really hate this girl. She is so rude and stuck up. Lorde is always making fun of other girls because she is self-conscious. No, you are not better than others if you don't have a name for your fans.
    And, I'm sure MOST of your fans are also fans of those other musicians, so good job insulting the kids who buy your crappy music and tickets. You should be so f-ing lucky to have masses of kids wanting to be associated with you.
    Keep up this piss attitude, and no one will want to be "Team Lordes" or "The Disciples"

    I can kind of understand what she is saying, but I was under the impression that it's usually the fans that come up with these names, and the celebrities just sort of roll with it. If enough fans want to be known as some name or other, they are gonna just call themselves that whether the celebrity chooses to acknowledges it or not.

    It's kind of like she is saying to her fans "No, your idea is stupid".

    Love her music but fame is clearly already giving her an attitude. The way she slams Lana Del Rey and other artists. I don't really understand the hype around her though. Her music is nice to listen but not really different. Didn't got that feeling from her album Pure Heroine that I did got from Lana Del Rey's Born To Die album. If u just listen to Pure Heroine… it's pretty much the same sound.

    Re: Gonzo – KISS has had their KISS Army and the Grateful Dead has had their Deadheads and Jimmy Buffett has had his Parrotheads long before Gaga came up with Little Monsters. But fans don't have to have a name for themselves to be annoying. Look at Madonna's fans, the most annoying fanbase ever.

    As for Lorde, is she always so negative? Girl, you're 17 years old and you act like you're 50. You're going to regret years later how you never seemed to have any fun at that age. The "I'm such an old soul" bit is getting old.

    I actually agree with what she said about naming fandoms, but please keep in mind that not all celebrities came up with petnames. As far as I know, I don't believe that Miley came up with the name "Smilers", I think some fans started that. Even then, she doesn't use the term very often, just calls them her fans. But otherwise, most artists talk about their named fandoms like some ultra-devoted cult and I find that disturbing. It feels like an ego trip

    Totally agree with her!! Its not the name itself…as someone else said, fandoms have been doing that forever, it's the cult like attitude that follows it on social media and elsewhere. They're this big…group that almost thinks as one and if you're a fan and dare disagree with them, you're out. It's terrifying.

    Every time she opens her mouth I'm more and more convinced she's a fucking idiot. In most cases its the fans who come up with these names, not the pop stars. They dont have anything to do with it except to accept or ignore it. Actually like she's above everyone else is a barf-inducing offense IMO.

    it became more popular when Lady Gaga started all of this with her little monsters! so annoying

    I think the fans kind of just start the name and the artist acknowledges it because… you know, they are fans they are the ones that make you money. :p

    I agree naming your fans is dumb, but this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to call them disciples.

    I just recently heard "Royals" and I love it. This girl has real talent, not just as a singer, but as a songwriter. I also like the fact that she is intelligent and not afraid to speak her mind. Refreshing in an industry where celebs regularly blow smoke up each other's asses, just to avoid any controversy….
