Selena Gomez Is Not Pregnant, But People Think Still Think She Is

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez take time out of their busy tour schedules to relax on a lounge chair by the pool while on holiday. The young lovebirds get flirty with one another as Selena reaches across Justin for her phone, and then strikes a pose as he takes her photograph.

Months ago, when the Internet first became inundated with the baseless rumor, we asked whether or not you thought the pop star was in fact expecting. And you'd think the answer would be a definitive, "no." Only, it wasn't.

Though she hasn't begun to eat Oreos and cream cheese, gained any noticeable weight, or befriended Gwyneth Paltrow, 48 percent of you nevertheless remain convinced the pop star is pregnant.

But don't worry, you're not alone. Far from it, actually. While we thought about sending out the office intern to conduct some field polls, we quickly realized that would mean a sudden shortage of coffee.

So instead we did what any college educated editorial staff would and smashed our keyboards long enough until we struck on something completely magical.

Eventually, we realized that by merely typing the word "Is" into Google, followed by one strike of the space bar, the first autocomplete suggestion that comes back at you is "Is Selena Gomez pregnant."



Seeing as Google's algorithm "predicts and displays search queries based on other users' search activities," we can only conclude that millions have been typing that exact phrase into their search bars over the course of the year.

As you can see from the screenshot, the other suggestions that pop up aren't any less enlightening. For the record, Daniel Tosh is not homosexual, Kate Middleton, like Gomez, does not have a baby on board, and bronchitis is highly contagious. So stop coughing.
