As someone who writes about reproductive rights, I have multiple active alerts on pregnancy-related news—and I can assure you that few celebrities are subject to as many tabloid-driven pregnancy rumors as Hailey Bieber. The headlines are constant, even when the ~source~ is just a photo of the model appearing to touch her stomach. In a new interview with GQ, published Tuesday, Bieber finally addressed the sexist coverage of her, calling it “disheartening.”

“Recently, everybody was like, ‘Oh, my God, she’s pregnant,’ and that’s happened to me multiple times before,” Bieber said of the ongoing online rumor mill that she and her husband Justin Bieber are expecting. She continued, “Damn, I can’t be bloated one time and not be pregnant? It would be a lie if I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, I don’t give a shit.’” While Bieber told the magazine that motherhood “is something that I look forward to,” she called it “a private, intimate thing,” and explained that “when there comes a day” that she and Justin are pregnant, “you, as in the internet, will be the last to know.” The model also called it “hilarious how much people fucking care.” She added: “Let me do what I want to do with my body and you guys can do what you want to do with your body—and let’s just let it be that.”

All good with me, truly! Being bombarded by violating pregnancy rumors and speculation is practically a rite of passage for female celebrities and it really should not be.

Bieber, who’s faced numerous online harassment campaigns often led by particularly vicious Selena Gomez fans, has previously said she’s “scared” of what her, err, critics will subject her future children to. After all, there’s still a not-insignificant contingency of terminally online Selenators and Beliebers who, like evangelical conspiracy theorists awaiting the rapture, genuinely think Gomez and Justin will still end up together.

Well, here’s hoping we’ll be lucky and the internet will be destroyed by the time Hailey and Justin have kid(s) together if they ever do.
