Lady Gaga References Taylor Swift, Shuts Down Pregnancy Rumor

“Not pregnant,” Gaga wrote. “Just down bad cryin at the gym” — a lyric from Track 4 of “Tortured Poets” song “Down Bad.”

Is Lady Gaga streaming The Tortured Poets Department too? On Tuesday, the pop star shared a TikTok making reference to one of Taylor Swift‘s lyrics and directing her fans to register to vote as she cleared pregnancy rumors.

“Not pregnant,” she wrote. “Just down bad cryin at the gym. Register to vote at www.headcount.org.”

The “just down bad cryin’ at the gym” is directly from Tortured Poets song “Down Bad,” on which Swift sings, “Now I’m down bad crying at the gym/Everything comes out teenage petulance/’What if I can’t have him.’”

Gaga captioned her post with a link to HeadCount, encouraging fans to “register to vote or check if you’re registered,” ahead of this year’s election.

The pregnancy speculation came up online after fans saw photos of Gaga, dressed in a short black dress and wearing pearls, at her sister’s wedding in Maine over the weekend. (Gaga was her sister’s maid of honor, per The Sun.)

Gaga is set to commence a new era of music and said she was “in the studio every single day” during the premiere of her Gaga Chromatica Ball concert film.

“I love to break genre and I love to explore music. There’s something really beautiful about knowing that you will be loved no matter what you do,” she said during a Q&A with Access Hollywood‘s Scott Evans ahead of the film’s screening.

In March, Gaga shared that she has been “writing some of my best music in as long as I can remember.” Gaga also recently announced the revival of her Jazz and Piano show in Las Vegas, where she performs jazz standards and tracks from the Great American songbook.
