Taylor Swift has managed to steal the spotlight amidst her Eras Tour yet again, but this time it is for a viral video that has been circulating the internet.

The video features the pop star on stage during her Eras Tour where she is donning her iconic crimson sequin bodysuit. Due to the camera angle with which a fan was recording the moment, her mid-section seemed to be protruding, and since the clip was taken from a lower side angle, it gave an illusion of a small baby bump. Speculations have been running wild, given that the pop star has been in a happy relationship with NFL player Travis Kelce for almost nine months now.

However, in the comment section of the viral video, fans were furious about the public just assuming the pop star was pregnant. Another point highlighted by fans was that women tend to hold a lot of water retention around their lower belly right before their monthly cycle, and in the process may show a protruding belly. Comments shut down Swift’s pregnancy rumors and said she might just be bloated in addition to the bad camera angle.

Most of the comments were opposed to the fact that the internet always has a rapport of coming down hard on women once they gain a few pounds.

Given that the billionaire has been actively on tour for the past month, there would have been more indications of pregnancy apart from a video taken from an unflattering angle. Until the pop star herself, Kelce, or a close family member or friend confirms the news, it is safe to assume that Swift is not yet pregnant.

This is not the first time the “Enchanted” singer has come under the microscope for pregnancy rumors. In her documentary film, Miss Americana, Swift addressed her pregnancy rumors, saying she had media houses follow her around when she was merely 18 asking if she was with child.

These rumors had pushed her to the brink of eating disorders and body dysmorphia adding to the trauma she was already facing as a teenage star new to the industry.

She spoke about the rumors during an interview with Variety, saying, “I remember how, when I was 18, that was the first time I was on the cover of a magazine, and the headline was like ‘Pregnant at 18?'” adding, “And it was because I had worn something that made my lower stomach look not flat. So I just registered that as a punishment.” The songstress further continued, “And then I’d walk into a photo shoot and be in the dressing room and somebody who worked at a magazine would say, ‘Oh, wow, this is so amazing that you can fit into the sample sizes. Usually, we have to make alterations to the dresses, but we can take them right off the runway and put them on you!’ And I looked at that as a pat on the head.”

Similarly, other celebrities with three to four kids in their family have spoken up about spreading false pregnancy rumors, per Cosmopolitan reports. For instance, Kourtney Kardashian Barker and Chrissy Teigen have addressed how rude it is for the public to assume a pregnancy without the person having to announce it themselves.
