Lorde Doesn't Mind The Pop-Star Title, But Don't Try To Name Her Fans

There comes a time in every pop star's career when their fan base becomes so large that they have to name them. Rihanna has her Navy, Gaga has her Little Monsters, and Beyoncé reigns over her Beyhive, but Lorde has yet to group her fangirls and boys into a collective. You'd think that after her meteoric rise in 2013, she'd gift her following with a title, but nope, it's not going to happen — ever.
The girl wants nothing to do with that aspect of pop now. "I find it grating to lump everyone into a really awkward, pun-centric name," she told Look magazine. "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.'" Amen, sister. Although, The Disciples is a pretty clever name — much better than dubbing everyone "Royals" or "White Teeth Teens" after track titles off her debut LP.
Fan base name or not, Lorde will gladly own her pop-star status. She explained to Look that pop "is really powerful and if I'm a pop star then I'll be that to the best of my ability." Yes, and we'll try our very best not to channel our mild obsession into a secret fandom hidden deep in the bowels of the Internet. (MTV)
