Fans of Lorde can be assured that they won’t be given a nickname by the “Royals” singer. According to Digital Spy on Jan. 12, the fast rising singer has said that she refuses to give her fans a nickname.

Lorde revealed in an interview with Look magazine that she actually finds any star that gives their fans nicknames very “grating”. So “Lorde maniacs” may be out of the question. The 17-year-old New Zealand born singer has made it clear that she will follow her own rules. She 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!”

It is clear the young singer embraces individuality and although she can’t completely stop fans from giving themselves a name, she had discouraged it, making it clear that she does not “condone it”.

Lorde also talked about her new stardom and being called a pop star. Although some might find pop music distasteful, Lorde embraces the music she loves and glad to be associated with the genre.

“Pop is really powerful and if I’m a popstar hen I’ll be that to the best of my ability.”

With a powerful voice and energy, Lorde is definitely thriving as a pop star. She just doesn’t want her fans calling themselves a silly name.
