Teens Are Now Referring To Their Favorite Celebrities As "Mom"

    This is a real thing that is happening.

    After Lorde tweeted "mom" in response to Kim K's Paper cover, everyone was confused by what they thought was Lorde slamming Kardashian for the infamous pic.

    “@KimKardashian: #BreakTheInternet http://t.co/3RhAPqJkPn” mom

    In reality, the ~hip~ phrase was really Lorde complimenting Kim K. That's right, the latest teen slang on the block is referring to your favorite celebs as "mom."

    Omg haha ok so. time to explain this. i retweeted kim's amazing cover and wrote 'MOM', which among the youthz is a compliment; it basically jokingly means "adopt me/be my second mom/i think of you as a mother figure you are so epic" (obviously i love my own mama and she is the best tho) but straight after that i think someone else called out the cover saying kim has no right to look that sexy as she is a mother which is TOTAL trash - why should that stop her?

    But 18-year-old Lorde isn't the only one using the hot lingo. When pretty much any major young celeb tweets, you can find a series of endearing "mom" replies from teens.

    They want Chloe Grace Moretz to adopt them:

    They wish Ariana Grande was their second mom:

    @ArianaGrande mom you're perfect

    They'd rather be the child of Fifth Harmony:

    @FifthHarmony MOM!!!! Please follow me???😢

    They think of Taylor Swift as their mother figure:

    They love their new momma Selena Gomez:

    @selenagomez mom I know you see me, so please follow me 😢

    They want Katy Perry and Diplo to be their parents:

    @katyperry MOM YOU GOT 60 MILLION FOLLOWERS NOW! I'm beyond proud 😚😚

    Their mom is also their #wcw (Woman Crush Wednesday):

    They're dying to be a new Jenner child:

    And they're begging to be Tove Lo's kids:


    In conclusion, pray for humanity.
