Taylor Swift is defending Lady Gaga after false pregnancy rumors surfaced online. On June 5, Swift commented under a TikTok posted by Gaga, in which the latter denied she was pregnant using one of Swift’s lyrics.

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

Rumors that Gaga might be expecting arose after photos of the singer at her sister’s wedding circulated online. In her now-viral TikTok, Gaga encouraged followers to register to vote and included the caption, “Not pregnant — just down bad cryin’ at the gym” — a nod to Swift’s song “Down Bad.”

The Joker: Folie à Deux star also addressed the pregnancy rumors on X (formerly Twitter) with a boomerang video of her winking to the camera. “Not pregnant… REGISTER TO VOTE or check if you’ve already registered EASILY at headcount.org,” she wrote in a caption.

Gaga has addressed remarks made about her body online before. Following her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance in 2017, the singer clapped back at fan comments regarding her weight.

“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,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “I could give you a million reasons why you don’t need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That’s the stuff of champions.”
