Ode to the internet. It helped catapult Rebecca Black to fame and then created a whirlwind storm over the weekend over her pregnancy rumors. Well, the YouTube sensation put those rumors to rest saying once and for all, no she’s not pregnant!
According to PopEater, the 13-year-old singer simply Tweeted: “I thought it was May 15th…not April Fools Day. I’m absolutely NOT pregnant.”
Although there’s usually a few celebrity death hoaxes floating on the net every so often, the pregnancy rumor was picked up when a CNN iReport ran with the faux story, as noted by E! Online. At that point, the rumor spun, spun and spun some more until Rebecca herself ended it!
