Dua Lipa may have to set some new rules for how she uses emojis.
During the Jan. 18th episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 25-year-old singer recalled how a recent Instagram post sparked pregnancy rumors.
It all started last week when Lipa posted side-by-side photos of herself modeling a green ensemble and captioned the snapshots with a series of emojis.
“I like finding little random emojis,” she explained to host Jimmy Kimmel. “I put, like, a little baby bottle, a little angel, some sparkles. Random. I really didn’t think this through.”
It was these small symbols, rather than the outfit of the day, that got followers talking.
“I posted it, and then I look at the comments, and then somebody says, ‘Is she pregnant?'” Lipa continued. “And I look at the picture, I look at the comment, I look at the picture, I look at the comment [and] I’m like, ‘Surely, I don’t look pregnant.’ And then, I see that people have been writing stories saying that I posted some cryptic message that I might be announcing my pregnancy. And I’m like, ‘Oh my god. These emojis have come to bite me in the ass.'”
