Lady Gaga once made the classic mistake of being decent at her job when she performed “Shallow” alongside Bradley Cooper at this year’s Oscars. Since then, she’s had to periodically assure the public that their heated duet was the product of artistry and not some brazen love affair. That did little to halt rumors, though, and chatter surrounding a potential pregnancy post-split with ex-fiance Christian Cariano soon surfaced. On Tuesday, Gaga took to Twitter to both quell baby rumors and remind us that she is still, you know, a very busy singer.
“Rumors I’m pregnant,” she asked. “Yeah, I’m pregnant with #LG6.” LG6 is in reference to Lady Gaga 6, her highly anticipated follow-up to 2016's Joanne.
Prior to this, the pop icon had to dismiss speculation of a romance between her and Cooper with an official eye roll on Jimmy Kimmel Live! soon after winning an Oscar for Best Original Song. “People saw love and, guess what, that’s what we wanted to you to see. This is a love song.”
Sorry, everyone. No baby or clandestine coupling here. Just silly things, like an active career.
