Taylor Swift Publicly Defends Lady Gaga Amid Pregnancy Rumors

Amid swirling pregnancy rumors, Lady Gaga posted a TikTok video of herself on Tuesday, June 4, with the on-screen caption, “not pregnant—just down bad crying at the gym,” while encouraging her followers to participate in the upcoming election. As a response, Taylor Swift, the mastermind behind the quoted lyrics, was quick to come to the star’s defense in the comments.

Gaga’s pregnancy speculation surged after paparazzi snapped photos of her attending her sister’s wedding this week with her partner Michael Polanski. However, she’s not the only one facing scrutiny. In recent weeks, social media has been abuzz with unwelcome speculation about whether Swift is also expecting, with numerous posts analyzing photos of her on stage at her iconic Eras Tour.

Swift, known for her vocal stance against invasive speculation, body shaming and tabloid culture, took to the comments support Gaga’s clarification. “Can we all agree that it’s invasive & irresponsible to comment on a woman’s body. Gaga doesn’t owe anyone an explanation & neither does any woman,” Swift penned.

We couldn’t agree more. Amidst a wave of online chatter and speculation surrounding Gaga and Swift’s personal lives, Swift’s comment serves as a much-needed reminder of the media and social-media users’ role in perpetuating harmful speculation.
