She doesn't condone fan names...
Speaking to Look Magazine, Lord said she wasn't interested in thinking up a "pun-centric" nickname for her fans like Lady Gaga's Little Monsters or Katy Perry's KatyCats. Below are some highlights:
Lorde on not being interested in a fancy pun nickname for her fans: "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.'"
Lorde on how she feels on being called a pop star: "I wouldn't take offence! People think pop's filthy and shameful. I love pop music! I don't think it's right to shit 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."
