Royals Singer Lorde Does Not Want Her Fans To Be Called ‘Disciples’ Unlike Katy Perry’s KatyCats Or Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters

Royals Singer Lorde maybe the first ever New Zealander to reach the top spot in the US Billboards, however her fame certainly does not get in her head, as the teen pop sensation reportedly does not want to be called a "teen hottie" nor her fans to be named as "disciples."

The 17-year old singer believes that "pun centric" nicknames for fans are undignified, think about Katy Perry's KatyCats or Lady Gaga's Little Monsters.
Lorde definitely has noble intentions, which she also thinks that nicknames for fans can create such tribal behavior that can easily get out of hand - just like when Lady Gag's Little Monsters announced an all out war online against Miley Cyrus' fans.
Consequently, when Lorde's fan proposed to the "Royals" singer that they should be called them as her "disciples," Lorde quickly disagreed, saying that such behavior is "grating" and humiliating.
"Never!", she said in a magazine interview. "I have discouraged it. I've tweeted multiple times, 'No fan name, I do not condone this."'
While the young pop sensation battles such nickname with her fans, it has previously been reported that there is no way that she wants to be called a "teen hottie."
From her interview with New York Times via Skype, Lord made it clear that she is not a "teen hottie," saying: "The phrase 'teen hottie' literally makes me want to throw up."
The Grammy-nominated singer also claimed that her music is something her generation could relate to.
"I'm trying to make something people my age will care about, trying to keep my peers feeling like I'm doing something for them or representing them in some way."
Unlike "Twerking Queen" pop star Miley Cyrus, Lorde is not playing any character to sell herself. She claims that she maintains full control over her packaging as an artist. She even divulged that she has turned down millions of dollars worth to maintain her true identity.
"I would like to think that my public persona comes naturally to me and isn't that dissimilar to my real way of doing things," she revealed. "I've turned down easily millions of dollars doing what I do and saying no to things that I think are corny."
Her "Royals" single is definitely a proof to this statement. She may not be presented as a typical pop star, but the singing sensation claims that she is a "pop princess at heart."
"Some people love writing about that, and that's fine," she said about love songs. "But I personally haven't found a way to do it yet which is innovative and feels new to me."
