One of the more peculiar aspects of being a celebrity is that not only are fans keeping up to date on everything you do, but that some people will read into every little detail. When you're famous enough, this means that a lot of misinformation makes it out onto the internet and you're left to either ignore it or make a public denial, no matter how ridiculous it is.
This week, various outlets, such as the Daily Mail, picked up on a report from Ok! Australia that claimed that Miley Cyrus was pregnant. The report claimed that she and Liam Hemsworth were due to have their first child, a baby girl, and that they were planning on raising the child in Byron Bay, Australia. Not everyone was on board with the rumour, but regardless, Miley soon turned up to set everyone straight.
The pop star got straight to the point, calling the news "Bull sh*t" in an Instagram comment she left on a fan's account she follows. This account has now been made private, but fans took screenshots of the denial that soon found their way onto Twitter.
In addition to this, Cryus replied directly to a tweet on the 'news' by the Daily Mail. Referencing the internet's recent obsession with an egg (read about why exactly that happened here), she used a hell of a lot of egg puns to mock the rumour mill.
"I’m not 'Egg-xpecting' but it’s 'Egg-celent' to hear everyone is so 'Happy For Us' .... we’re happy for us too! 'Egg-cited' for this next chapter in our lives.... Now , can everyone leave me alone and go back to staring at an egg," she wrote.
It doesn't look like Miley and Liam are actually looking to have kids anytime soon, if People Magazine are to be believed. “They both love kids, but they’re not in a rush to start a family,” a source close to Cyrus told them on December 28, shortly after their marriage was announced.
Cyrus also posted another statement on her Instagram story, potentially about this situation. She shared a mirror selfie of herself along with the caption, "Broken phone to match our system/society."
Unfortunately, she isn't the only female celeb to receive this kind of unwanted attention, as Kaley Cuoco was also heavily rumoured to be pregnant - all because of the way her dress hung in an engagement photo with new husband Karl Cook.
Rest assured, she was not happy about all the questions she received about it, writing: "I'm so sorry I bent over in a way to where my dress billowed in the wind and made you think this. Question. Would you walk up to me and ask this straight to my face?"
So, next time you see one of these stories start making the rounds, it's worth checking out if it's just based on the way someone is stood, rather than having a baby on the way.
