Miley Cyrus is not pregnant, despite speculation that she showed off a “bump” on social media. Gossip Cop can help set the record straight.

On Wednesday night, Cyrus posted to Twitter and Instagram a photo of herself celebrating both her birthday and Thanksgiving a little early (see above). She wrote in the caption, “So close to b-day time! Stoked for a day full of Tofurkey & loved ones! Ain’t it ironic? #VeganTurkeyBaby.” In the photo, Cyrus was leaning back and her stomach appeared to be protruding. That and the “baby” caption led HollywoodLife to state in a headline, “Is Miley Cyrus Pregnant? Fans Freak Over ‘Bump’ Pic As She Kicks Off Thanksgiving.”

The accompanying story begins, “Wait, what? The internet is freaking out that Miley Cyrus may be pregnant! The singer took to Instagram to post a celebratory photo ahead of her 25th birthday and fans think she’s showing off a baby bump! What do you think?” Calling it a “telling photo” with an “apparent baby bump,” the webloid suggests the pop star “may have some explaining to do!” The site points to comments about the “mysterious photo,” such as one that said, “Not only does she look pregnant, but the random blue thing on the table could totally be gender reveal.”

The outlet further notes, “Just this past Tuesday, Miley gave fans more reason to speculate about a potential pregnancy when she rocked an oversized pink dress on ‘The Voice’… Fans were questioning if the singer was hiding a baby bump under her ‘trash bag’ outfit.” Yet the online publication fails to mention that on Monday’s show, Cyrus wore a skin-tight gown that made clear she had no bump whatsoever. She didn’t then suddenly develop one days later.

HollywoodLies, as its nicknamed, also points out that, at the time its story was published, Cyrus had “yet to address the wild pregnancy speculation.” But that didn’t stop the blog from spreading the possibility, instead of waiting for confirmation one way or the other. And now the singer IS speaking out. Cyrus wrote on Twitter on Thursday afternoon, “RUDE!!! Not pregnant just eating a [expletive] ton of tufurkey.” She even posted a zoomed-in version of the same photo with the same comment scrawled across it, along with an arrow pointing to what is her food baby, not an actual baby. Now it’s just a matter of time until the webloid flip-flops.
