Lady Gaga Shuts Down Pregnancy Rumours, But There’s a Bigger Issue at Hand


It’s 2024, but somehow, people are still all about celebrity pregnancy speculation, and Lady Gaga is the latest celebrity to fall victim to such rumours. The buzz kicked off when photos taken at Lady Gaga’s sister’s wedding hit the internet, but Gaga wasted no time shutting the rumours down.

On TikTok, Gaga addressed the rumours with a reference to Taylor Swift’s song “Down Bad” from The Tortured Poets Department. “Not pregnant — just down bad cryin’ at the gym,” she captioned her video.

The video quickly went viral, and Taylor Swift added her support in the comments, calling out the “invasive” comments about Gaga’s appearance.

“Can we all agree that it’s invasive & irresponsible to comment on a woman’s body,” Taylor wrote on Gaga’s TikTok video. “Gaga doesn’t owe anyone an explanation & neither does any woman.”

Why Are We Still Obsessed With Speculating About Celebrity Pregnancies?

But why are we still so fixated on these rumours? It’s downright rude to speculate about someone’s pregnancy without their consent. Women’s bodies are constantly scrutinised, and it’s unfair to assume they’re pregnant when they’re not. Why can’t we just leave it up to the celeb to make that announcement before we start speculating?

Take Taylor Swift, for example. She’s been facing similar rumours during her recent Eras Tour shows. Lately, I’ve seen way too many “Taylor Swift is pregnant – that is a baby bump!” videos on social media, and truly, haven’t we seen these rumours about TayTay come and go countless times before?

The sad thing is, Taylor’s not the only victim. Months before Kourtney Kardashian’s announcement of her pregnancy with Travis Barker, she faced persistent inquiries about her weight gain during her IVF journey. Similarly, Vanessa Hudgens found herself bombarded with pregnancy comments on one of her Instagram posts. Fans even directly asked, “Are you pregnant?” The comments became so prevalent that Hudgens eventually addressed them, clarifying, “Not pregnant so y’all can stop,” accompanied by an eye-roll emoji.

Lately, I’ve seen way too many “Taylor Swift is pregnant – that is a baby bump!” videos, featuring her performing on her Eras tour in a black and red sequin bodysuit. It’s not the only similar post circulating on TikTok and Instagram, and honestly, haven’t we seen these rumors about TayTay come and go countless times before?

It Needs to Stop

We never know what someone is going through, and that can make rumours like this harmful. Jennifer Aniston has previously spoken about her difficult fertility journey, revealing that she tried for many years to conceive. The actress told Allure in 2022 that she went through multiple unsuccessful rounds of IVF — all while the tabloids furiously speculated that she was secretly pregnant.

“It was a challenging road for me, the baby-making road,” she said.

“All the years and years and years of speculation… It was really hard,” she continued. “I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it. I would’ve given anything if someone had said to me, ‘Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favour.’ You just don’t think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed.”

Celebrity or not, women shouldn’t have to constantly defend their personal lives against intrusive speculation.

In the end, it’s time we rethink our obsession with celebrity pregnancies. Let’s respect women’s privacy and autonomy, and remember that it’s not our place to speculate about their personal lives. After all, wouldn’t we want the same respect and privacy for ourselves?
