Best Celebrity Fan Nicknames
In our social media-driver era, it’s more important now than ever for celebrities to engage with their fan base. This may be why A and Z-listers alike coin cute, other times confusing nicknames for their crazed fans. We've spotted the best (and most creative) nicknames. Take a look! — Nina M. Nwofia
Fan Nickname: Little Monsters
Lady Gaga is well known for breaking social norms, and has even admitted to being bullied in high school. By calling her fans little monsters, the “Alejandro” singer can embrace her weirdness, and show appreciation for the fans who embrace her.
Fan Nickname: Hooligans
Bruno Mars’ hooligans know how goofy he is—remember “The Lazy Song” and his Saturday Night Live skits? By calling his fan hooligans, they can appreciate his silly sense of humor.
Fan Nickname: Rosebuds/Rosestuds
Amber Rose went on a pretty impressive media tour before Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got together, where an array of smart interviews grew her fan base. Her fan nicknames, rosebuds and rosestuds, link directly with her brand and the famed tattoo on her arm.
Fan Nickname: Beyhive
Fans have been calling Beyoncé Queen Bey for years, so it’s only natural that she would eventually switch from calling them the Beyontourage to the Beyhive. Not only does it set her throne in stone, but it shows her love for the fans who coined the term. Back off, wasps!
Fan Nickname: Heartbeats
If you’ve been following Jessie J and her crazy vocals, you’ll know she’s all about feeling the love. Her debut album, Who You Are, focused more on self-love/respect than anything else, and calling her fans “heartbeats” delivers the message perfectly.
Fan Nickname: Electrics
Miguel is credited for shining his kaleidoscope spotlight on what many call “real R&B,” despite its recent disappearance from Top 40 charts and radio. However, the “Adorn” singer’s sound is still new and electric, and his fans can appreciate living on planet Miguel.
