Even though it’s never cool to speculate about women’s bodies and reproductive choices, female celebs are seemingly subjected to pregnancy rumors all the time. The latest celeb to shut down speculation is pop singer Halsey, who inadvertently sparked rumors when she told her Twitter followers she was preparing to share “the biggest secret” with fans. On Monday, February 18th, the singer took to Twitter to tease a major secret unrelated to her new music, adding, “when [you] guys hear it, some of you are gonna explode into actual pieces.”
Fans instantly began hypothesizing about the nature of the news. Some guessed a new movie or TV series, some guessed a collaboration with other artists, and, yes, some thought she might be pregnant.
It seems the possibilities are endless, but one thing is certain: Halsey is not hinting at a pregnancy, and she shut down the speculation like a champ.
When one fan asked her “what’s wrong with gaining weight,” she responded in an equally perfect way by reminding us that there’s nothing wrong with our changing bodies.
So here’s your friendly reminder that unless someone tells you they’re pregnant, you shouldn’t make the assumption. Halsey is frequently open with her fans about tough topics, from criticism about her natural hair texture to a past miscarriage, and while we’re grateful to her for always keeping it real, we’re bummed she even has to defend herself in the first place.
Now, we just need to know: What’s the actual secret, lady?
