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)
