Lady Gaga didn’t waste any time shutting down recent pregnancy rumors, taking to TikTok to post a cheeky response video that includes a Taylor Swift lyrical reference.

“Not pregnant–just down bad cryin at the gym,” reads the message across her latest TikTok, referencing Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department track “Down Bad,” which debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 last month. (The full lyric: “Now I’m down bad crying at the gym/ Everything comes out teenage petulance.”)

Gaga also didn’t miss a high-profile opportunity to urge her Little Monsters to make their voices heard, adding: “Register to vote at www.headcount.org.”

The video itself sees Gaga in a dramatic black-eyeliner look, lip-syncing to a TikTok voice-over that says: “I don’t have to find an aesthetic. I am an aesthetic. I mean I’m sure there’s somebody out here right now who’s going into Pinterest trying to type up all these adjectives to describe me.” The audio was originally posted by TikTok user notpennyproud back in 2021.

The pregnancy rumors cropped up over the weekend, thanks to fans thinking they saw evidence of a baby bump in photos of Gaga attending her sister’s wedding Saturday with partner Michael Polansky.

Late last month, the Gaga Chromatica Ball concert film premiered on HBO and Max and hinted at the pop superstar’s next musical era, with a message reading “LG7 GAGA RETURNS” flashing onscreen at the end. And that won’t be her only major project: Her turn as Harley Quinn in the upcoming Joker: Folie à Deux musical sequel — alongside original Joker star Joaquin Phoenix — is set to hit theaters on Oct. 4.
