Lorde ‘I Refuse To Name My Fans’

lorde-straight-hair-pictureLorde has said she won’t name her fans like Miley Cyrus [Smilers] and Lady Gaga [Little Monsters]. Lorde told LOOK: ‘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.’’

I wouldn’t take offence! People think pop’s filthy and shameful. I love pop music! I don’t think it’s right to **** 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.’

    wow Lorde what a special little snowflake you are.
    I honestly don’t get the hype around her.

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      her album was AMAZING , maybe that’s why?

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    Lol I love her , and agree one hundred percent . She doesn’t have to name her fans . And she is actually really sweet but magazines don’t like puting the full stories. she doesn’t feel like she should be famous, so she thinks thinking about her self as someone’s idol is weird and I respect that. It better than her being arrogant

  • Cici

    I like her hair like that…straight.

  • Laura

    I’ve always found it a bit cringe when celebs name their fanbase.

  • Godney

    She has fans? o.o

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      Yes lol

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    Celebs didn’t start naming their fans until the Beliebers came along, so I really don’t get it nor do I think it’s necessary.

    • Sue

      It’s pretty cheesy to be honest cause they don’t even try to make it sound good. they literally take their name and switch it around to form a fandom name. Can it have actual meaning? Rather then Beliebers, Direcitoners, Lovatics, Smilers, Selenators. Lady Gaga’s actually has nothing to do with her name and Rihanna.

      • hehe

        you forgot Swifties too lol, but Riri Navy is kinda stupid imo and ya also forgot KatyCats.

        • Sue

          Yah Rihanna Navy is dumb but I was just saying almost everyone does it, only some celebs don’t.

    • uhm

      no Lady Gaga started the trend with Little Monsters.

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        Ooo my bad.

    Miley didn’t name her fans smilers. Her fans did that all on their own.

    I totally agree with her, but I do kind of like The Disciples even if it is horribly pretentious,
