    Lorde has no desire to christen her fans with a pet name. You know, Lady Gaga has Little Monsters. Katy Perry has the Katy Cats. Rihanna has her Navy. One Direction have Directioners. Justin Bieber has Beliebers and so on and so forth. Lorde is not interested in giving her legion of followers any sort of collective name. Not. Even. Close.

    "I find it grating to lump everyone into a really awkward, pun-centric name," the outspoken singer said. "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.'"

    So no Lorde Horde? No Lorde Loyalists? Lorde Lovers? That's fine with her and with us! Fans are fans are fans, with or without a name!

    What do you think of Lorde's decision to steer clear of a collective pet name for her fans? We likey, like everything about her!
