Lady Gaga is not pregnant, so let it go, okay?

The singer shut down pregnancy rumors on social media after some photos of her at her sister's wedding sparked unsolicited comments about whether she might be expecting.

Overlaid on a TikTok video, she wrote, "not pregnant-- just down bad cryin at the gym," referencing Taylor Swift's lyrics to her song "Down Bad," from the album The Tortured Poets Department.

Knowing her words would make waves, Gaga took the opportunity to remind people to register to vote, captioning the post, "register to vote or check if you're registered EASILY at"

Using celeb gossip about herself for a good cause? This is why Gaga is mother.

(You can check the deadline for voter registration in your state on, but sooner rather than later is always best. And just so you have all the information in one place, presidential election day is Nov. 5.)

And for maximum impact, Gaga repeated her message over on Instagram Stories, and on X:

Gaga and Swift don't seem to be close friends, but it's safe to say they definitely admire each other. In 2015, the "Karma" singer wrote in a now-deleted tweet, "Is it just me or is Lady Gaga, like, fully LIVING right now? #goals"

The "Bad Romance" singer answered, "@taylorswift13 wow you're a sweetheart! Life is friends, family, and love! We all see that in you, your prince charming will come!" (Travis Kelce, you seeing this, hun?)

In terms of political issues, Gaga has always been outspoken—which is one of the reasons her fans are so devoted to her. She is a staunch LGBTQ+ ally, vocally anti-racist, a denouncer of sexual assault, and was even named co-chair of the Arts and Humanities Committee within Joe Biden's administration.

So, in conclusion: Lady Gaga is not pregnant, and you should register to vote right now. Okay, love you bye!
