The 2023 MTV VMAs were a who’s who of famous faces, with artists from every genre coming together to celebrate all things music. However, people tuning into the VMAs 2023 speculated Selena Gomez is pregnant – a rumor which was quickly dispelled by her fans.
A-list celebrities from around the world of music were out in full force at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. The star-studded event took place just outside New York City at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. on Tuesday September 12, and one person in particular was the talk of Twitter.
Selena Gomez stuns at MTV Video Music Awards
Selena Gomez turned many a head on the night, rocking up in chic red Oscar de la Renta dress. It was the first time she had attended the award ceremony since 2015.
The singer, actress and producer was nominated for Song of the Year, Collaboration of the Year, and the Best Afrobeats VMA Awards, winning the latter for her song Calm Down with Rema.
“‘Calm Down’ is about the events that led me to finding love at the time,” Rema told Pitchfork about the song. “It started at a party where I saw a girl who stood out from other girls so I felt like shooting my shot. We spoke and danced…but her friends didn’t let me get any closer which killed the vibe, but afterward when they weren’t there, we stayed in touch and hit it off.”
Rumors Selena Gomez is pregnant swirl amid 2023 MTV VMAs
The 31-year-old was undoubtedly one of the talking points on the night, but not for the reason you might think. On social media, fans tuning into the MTV VMAs 2023 speculated that Selena Gomez is pregnant.
‘Selena Gomez looked pregnant’, one person remarked.
‘What’s wrong with Selena Gomez face she don’t look like herself is she pregnant or something?’, added another.
“#SelenaGomez looked gorgeous at the #VMAs but I actually thought for 1 sec she was pregnant . No joke,” wrote a fan on the social media platform.
‘You can clearly see Selena Gomez is pregnant’, another person said.
Fans jump to the singer’s defence to dispel the rumors
Twitter was littered with remarks about Selena Gomez being pregnant. However, fans of the singer were quick to dispel the rumors and weren’t happy with people making remarks about what is just her natural body.
“I knew people would say this because they think women have to have flat stomachs and think it’s okay to judge a woman’s body, but Selena Gomez is NOT pregnant. #VMAs,” one user said.
“No, Selena is not pregnant. The dress is very tight and she has a kidney in her belly,” another added.
Gomez herself has never publicly said that she’s expecting a baby, so until she confirms it we can safely assume she isn’t pregnant.
