Taylor Swift isn’t here for people speculating about Lady Gaga’s — or any woman’s — body.

The pop superstar, 34, came to the Joker: Folie à Deux star’s defense on Wednesday, June 5, after the latter, 38, posted a TikTok video shutting down pregnancy rumors that sparked over the weekend.

“Can we all agree that it's invasive & irresponsible to comment on a woman’s body,” Swift wrote in Gaga’s TikTok comments section. “Gaga doesn’t owe anyone an explanation & neither does any woman.”

Gaga denied pregnancy rumors this week in her TikTok while making a cheeky reference to Swift’s song "Down Bad” off her newly-released The Tortured Poets Department album. "Not pregnant -- just down bad cryin at the gym,” read large letters at the bottom of the Chromatica artist’s video with a close-up of her bleached eyebrows.

The 10-second clip shows Gaga partially lip-syncing along to audio that says, "I don't have to find an aesthetic; I am the aesthetic. I mean, I'm sure there's somebody out here right now who is going into Pinterest trying to type up all these adjectives to describe me."

The Love For Sale singer then took the opportunity to remind her followers to focus on more important matters, instructing them to “register to vote at www.headcount.org.” She doubled down on the request in her caption, too, writing to fans, “Register to vote or check if you're registered EASILY at www.headcount.org.”

Gaga’s TikTok video follows rampant pregnancy rumors that began after photos of the singer celebrating her sister Natali Germanotta's wedding in Maine surfaced on June 3. It's not the first time she's had to address speculation surrounding her body.

In 2017, the musician wrote a brief message to fans in an Instagram post that read, “I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I'm proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too. No matter who you are or what you do.”

“I could give you a million reasons why you don't need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed,” the “Born This Way” performer continued. “Be you, and be relentlessly you. That's the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga."
