Swifties. Beliebers. Mahomies. Lovatics. Little Monsters. For every huge star, an army of their loyal fans instantly assembles and dubs themselves some sort of clever name, usually a pun that gets less and less funny every time you hear it. But while Lorde has a stage name that practically begs for a fanbase title, the Kiwi teen says thanks but no thanks to that idea:
“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.’”
Ugh lighten up, Lolo! (That’s my new nickname for her BTW, so get on board.) I’m kind of over
being told to throw my hands up in the air constantly hearing about all the things Lorde doesn’t like and doesn’t approve of. Plus, she should wise up to the fact that you can’t control your fans with an iron fist and if they want to brand themselves something, let them! All it does it solidify your stardom and grow your fame which, last time I check, was kind of the point?
Plus, all Lorde’s insistence makes me want to come up with a fanbase name even more, don’t you agree? So, just to ruffle her gothic little feathers, let’s brainstorm as many fan names as we possibly can darlings! I’ll start: Worshippers, Parishioners, Royal Subjects, Teammates.
Have a better idea? Leave it in the comments, loves, and I’ll be sure to slip the list to your girl next time I see her skulking about looking for something else to complain about…XOXO.
