Stop Making Up Fandom Names! You're Annoying Lorde.
Lorde Doesn't Want You To Be Her Disciples!
Do you love Lorde? That's great! Just don't go giving yo' fanclub a name.
Directioners, Beliebers and Smilers all know how comforting it can be to have a fan clique - it helps you tweet about your fave band, and tell the passionate peeps from the poseurs at concerts - but Lorde won't be having any of that nonsense!
She's slammed fans who wanted to start calling her fanbase "Disciples" (get it? because she's the "Lorde?"). "Never!", she told a magazine. "I have discouraged it. I've tweeted multiple times, 'No fan name, I do not condone this."'
So what do you reckon? Is she being smart, or are people going to come up with a nickname anyway?
