Taylor Swift Defends Lady Gaga Against ‘Invasive’ Pregnancy Rumors

  • Taylor Swift weighed in on the pregnancy speculation surrounding Lady Gaga
  • The pop star commented on the “Born This Way” singer’s TikTok video where she denied rumors
  • Gaga made a cheeky reference to Swift’s song “Down Bad” while addressing fans in her TikTok this week

Taylor Swift isn’t here for people speculating about Lady Gaga’s — or any woman’s — body.

The pop superstar, 34, came to the Joker: Folie à Deux star’s defense on Wednesday, June 5, after the latter, 38, posted a TikTok video shutting down pregnancy rumors that sparked over the weekend.

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

Gaga denied pregnancy rumors this week in her TikTok while making a cheeky reference to Swift’s song “Down Bad” off her newly-released The Tortured Poets Department album. “Not pregnant — just down bad cryin at the gym,” read large letters at the bottom of the Chromatica artist’s video with a close-up of her bleached eyebrows

The 10-second clip shows Gaga partially lip-syncing along to audio that says, “I don’t have to find an aesthetic; I am the aesthetic. I mean, I’m sure there’s somebody out here right now who is going into Pinterest trying to type up all these adjectives to describe me.”

The Love For Sale singer then took the opportunity to remind her followers to focus on more important matters, instructing them to “register to vote at www.headcount.org.” She doubled down on the request in her caption, too, writing to fans, “Register to vote or check if you’re registered EASILY at www.headcount.org.”

Gaga’s TikTok video follows rampant pregnancy rumors that began after photos of the singer celebrating her sister Natali Germanotta‘s wedding in Maine surfaced on June 3.

Afterward, her makeup artist, Sarah Tanno, came to her defense in a post shared on X (formerly Twitter), where she wrote, “Honestly, it’s really sad that she had to address this because people were commenting about her body.”

She continued, “People should not be allowed to comment on other people’s body, fans have been saying for years that’s she was pregnant, just because how she looks in certain outfits. Why spread a rumor about somebody that you care about or love? It does affect people’s mental health, people should not be body shaming people or assuming they are pregnant when they aren’t!”

Tanno, 43, concluded her message by writing, “Even if she was pregnant, it’s none of your business to know at all. Why are people obsessed with her being pregnant or not?? I don’t get it.”

This isn’t the first time Gaga has had to address speculation surrounding her body. In 2017, she wrote a brief message to fans in an Instagram post that read, “I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too. No matter who you are or what you do.”

“I could give you a million reasons why you don’t need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed,” the “Born This Way” performer continued. “Be you, and be relentlessly you. That’s the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga.”
