7 Ridiculous Fan Nicknames, And 1 That Doesn't Suck

And a woman asked, Master, what about fandom? And he answered: You would coin a name for your disciples. A true star must have pet names for her fans, as a frat boy has nicknames for his dipper.

Pop the hood for the most ridiculous celebrity fan nicknames.

Artist: Wiz Khalifa

Fan Nickname(s): Taylors, Taylor Gang

Wiz Khalifa fans are nicknamed Taylors after his fondness for Chuck Taylors. Good thing he's not obsessed with Louboutins.

Artist: Katy Perry

Fan Nickname: KatyCats

Do you own a whipped-cream bra? Have you ever considered inking Katy Perry lyrics on your person? If you answered "yes," chances are you're a bonafide KatyCat. Whatever that is. Legend has it that Perry coined the nickname during her Hello Katy tour. No word on how big a role mental exhaustion played.

Artist: Justin Bieber

Fan Nickname: Beliebers

You're neither a believer nor Justin Bieber. Lame.

Artist: Nicki Minaj

Fan Nickname: Barbz and Kens

Barbz is Nicki Minaj's nickname for women and gay men We can't think of the words that do them justice, so here, are pictures.

Artist: Lady Gaga

Fan Nickname: Little Monsters

You know why Gaga is straight pwning the game right now? Because she took a fucking steak knife to the box. Duh. Except when it comes to nicknaming her rabid fans, apparently. Nothing about Little Monsters spells bold or outrageous or bizarre, which in itself is bizarre. It's a monstrous vortex of bizarreness.

Alternative Nickname: Little Speculums

Artist: Tech N9ne

Fan Nickname: Technitions

You can't fix a blown fuse or use spellcheck. Lame.

Artist: Adam Lambert

Fan Nickname: Glamberts

Conjures images of a religious cult united by a shared love for gold dust, gemstones, and Gene Simmons. That's all kinds of scary. Hold us.

Artist: A Tribe Called Quest

Fan Nickname: A Tribe Called Quest Fans

No, there's no official nickname for A Tribe Called Quest fans. They are simply called A Tribe Called Quest fans. A guy or gal who fancies A Tribe Called Quest is called a Tribe Called Quest fan; two or more fans are called Tribe Called Quest fans. Some may refer to themselves as Tribe heads, ATCQ heads, or Tribe fans. But none of these is an official nickname conceived by Tip, Shaheed or Phife.

And you know what? That's cool, too.
