Okay, hoaxes on the Internet are legendary. But now this is just crazy. Poor Taylor Swift has been the target of two sets of hoaxes today – one suggests she’s pregnant, and the other suggests she’s dead altogether. What’s interesting is that Taylor Swift‘s death was reported by a fake MTV news account somewhere around August 5th, but somehow that news has only now travelled to India because Indian celebrities were tweeting today about Taylor’s death. And while that was happening, a new set of rumors have cropped up – these claiming that she’s pregnant with the child of Harry Styles (one of the One Direction boys).
Aww, come on, Bollywood. You should know better than to immediately believe news doing the rounds on Twitter, especially since some of our very own have “died” in the recent past, like Amitabh Bachchan and Prabal Gurung. Unfortunately, there have been so many actual deaths recently that I guess this is why Sanjay Gupta assumed it to be real.
Now I’m still trying to figure out how this one originated, but comments on the video for her new single, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, are flooded with rumors about her pregnancy. I mean, the place is reeking of trolls so I wouldn’t believe it for a second, but jeez. I’m interested in seeing how this pans out because both 1D fans and TSwift fans are super enthusiastic (to say the least), so it’ll be worth keeping an eye on these comments, if only for the laughs.
Meanwhile, we’re assuming Taylor Swift is simply gearing up for the release of her upcoming album, Red. Let’s just hope she’s not seeing red with all these rumors doing the rounds!
