Diana Ross Pregnancy Rumors Spread Like Wildfire [PHOTO]
Of course, the 71-year-old singer isn't prego. But let's keep it real, she's certainly gained some weight. Ross was leaving an organic grocery store in Los Angeles on Tuesday (Sept. 29) when the paparazzi photographed her. The “Upside Down” singer was all smiles as she was leaving the store casually dressed in an all-black cardigan with matching T-shirt and leggings.
The pregnancy rumors spread like wildfire on social media and folks were quick to body shame Ross once they realized she wasn't pregnant. "Y'all are wrong for the shady tweets about Diana Ross. She's 71. Women can't be skinny forever," wrote one fan, while another commented, "Diana Ross looks like she got back together with the Supremes. Taco Supremes."
Ross will likely be hitting the gym very soon because she is preparing for her second residency in Las Vegas in November. The "Coming Out" singer is returning to the Venetian Hotel for a nine-show stint as part of the Essential Diana Ross: Some Memories Never Fade series.
"I love to sing and perform and every show feels like a celebration," she told the Las Vegas Review-Journal back in March. "Just like a brand new day or a brand new moment and it’s all about the music and those private and personal memories."
While her weight gain seems to be a shock, we say leave Diana "The Boss" Ross alone and let her enjoy her twilight years entertaining her beloved fans.
