Lorde Won’t Name Her Fans

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Pop,

LordeLorde refuses to give her fanbase a name.

The "Royal" singer isn't a fan of the trend for celebrities to give their devoted followers a name - like Lady Gaga and her Little Monsters or Katy Perry and her KatyCats - and thinks it's embarrassing and "awkward."

When asked whether she had named her fans yet, she ranted, "F**k no! That's the worst! 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 no condone this.'"

The 17-year-old star isn't opposed to being branded a "pop star," however, and would never criticize any style of music. "I wouldn't take offense! People think pop's filthy and shameful. I love pop music! I don't think it's right to s**t 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," she insisted.

The teen finds it hardest to adjust to how her school peers' attitudes have changed towards her since her rise to fame last year. "I feel like I'm alone a lot. Partly because I'm in high school and there are people being quite cliquey. Girls are particularly weird. I love to observe how they assess the high school situation. Over the last couple of months I've just started to realize that, wow, people in the real world don't care if your legs aren't perfect," she said.
