In case you haven’t really been online today, hi! Welcome back to the internet. You missed some big news from Katy Perry, delivered via an ethereal May Queen–esque music video:
Katy debuted a music video for her new song “Never Worn White,” but she low-key overshadowed the music itself with a bigger announcement: She’s pregnant and expecting her first child with her fiancé, Orlando Bloom.
Fans knew what was up as soon as they saw the video, because, well:
Ending the vid on stills like this obviously got people talking. But this wasn’t just an artsy music-video thing. No, this was a full pregnancy announcement, as Katy confirmed later on Twitter and during an Instagram Live.
She also let it spill how she’s managed to keep her pregnancy a secret for months, despite being an Extremely Famous Person™ hounded by paparazzi.
Tactic number one Katy employed: attempting to suck in her stomach to fool the masses.
Success rate: IDK, but probably not great? That just can’t be comfortable. I have questions. @ Katy?
