20 Weird Fandom Names EXPLAINED
Apparently pronounced “the bee hive,” Beyoncé‘s BeyHive are the most committed fans in the Western World. The Ringer did an article that dug deep into the Hive’s origins and their interesting network of information that allows them to figure out what Queen Bey will do next despite her reluctance to do interviews, Tweet, or send out press releases. After a photo scandal erupted that alienated former fansite BeyonceWorld from the singer, some fans left to create their own club that they called BeyHive. A new web designer working for Beyonce was having trouble coming up with a name for her upcoming fansite in 2012, and he decided to suggest a name that was already working. She thought the name was hilarious, and it stuck.
