Brandy Rayana Norwood, best known by her stage name Brandy, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress born on February 11, 1979. She is noted for her particular sound, characterized by her unusual timbre, vocal layering, and complicated riffs, earning her the title “the Vocal Bible.” She has sold more than 40 million records worldwide since August 2020, with approximately 8.62 million albums sold in the United States alone.
She has been the subject of speculation and criticism about her body for years. Brandy Norwood explained in an interview with True Exclusives that she’s just been living her best life and eating some delicious food. Brandy is confirming that she is NOT pregnant, despite recent reports to the contrary. This isn’t the first time she’s had to refute pregnancy rumors; only last year, she had to address the same rumor and took to social media to express her dissatisfaction with the persistent rumors. She said of the rumors, She didn’t think the pregnancy thing was body-shaming. Furthermore, she also didn’t get that from people who saw her weight gain and assumed that she was pregnant.
All The Rumors Are Untrue!
Brandy stated that she went on a foodcation (an eating spree after one takes time off their diet) because she’d been eating clean for like seven-and-a-half years, going to the gym every day, playing tennis. ‘Yo, I’m tired of this crazy discipline,’ She said. I need to eat something! Pizza, pasta, and cake are all on my wish list! ‘I’m not in the mood for salmon, broccoli, or asparagus.’
She has denied being pregnant on several occasions in the last year, describing herself as “thicker than a snicker” in an Instagram post last year. She claims that if she did have a child, the child would already be 2.5 years old today.
The Past Is In The Past!
Brandy also asserts that, unlike when her daughter Sy’rai was born in 2002, she would not lie about a pregnancy today. At the time, the vocalist of “Full Moon” felt obligated to conceal her marital status.
She explains that she lied about being married because she wanted to have the baby. Brandy went on to say that she reasoned that if she didn’t come clean about (not) being married, Brandy didn’t want to lose any of her followers. She didn’t want to let anyone down. That’s why, because she was pregnant, Brandy felt no need of wanting to walk down the aisle. She wanted to be prepared for it, so the easiest way to get out of the public eye was to say that she was married. She realized that it was the wrong decision. Brandy also stated that she was younger during her pregnancy and believed that having a child without a wedding ring would jeopardize her career.
It all started with her caption on an Instagram photo, “Dear God, I can finally see you in me,” says the RnB singer. “Keep using me so that I can continue to enjoy the pleasure of being used by you,” I swear I’ll cut down on my clap backs. #wink❤️ I’m in love with you.”
Fans mistook her comment to reference her recent pregnancy and began congratulating her. Brandy then changed her Instagram bio to read, “I’m not expecting a child, people!!! I have a lot of work ahead of me. Allow me to live!! My favorite foods are pancakes and chocolate cake…” Syria, the singer’s only kid, seems satisfied with her position as her mother’s only child.
As the pregnancy rumors spread, the adolescent resorted to social media to end them. “My mother is not pregnant,” she wrote, “and there will be no more siblings for me. Being an only child is something I appreciate. Lord, thank you.” She also wrote, “She just ate chocolate cake and pancakes every day. I was there.”
Brandy humorously told her daughter to get off social media at school, “Lil lady.”
The Actual News:
Music has always been her baby. Her work has earned her numerous awards, and in her crown of accolades, a Grammy Award, an American Music Award, and seven Billboard Music Awards are just a few of the many feathers. Brandy has cited Whitney Houston as her most significant musical and showbiz influence since her career. Houston was her “idol” early in her career. She credited her voice, songs, and performances as crucial to her personal and professional success. “As a professional artist, I would say Whitney Houston is the best voice of all time,” Brandy said in a 2014 interview. Just because a woman gains a little bit of weight doesn’t automatically mean she’s having a baby. Hopefully, everyone will let her live her best life and continue eating whatever she wants! She wishes for the assumptions to stop as they stem from harmful body image expectations. Confirming that Brandy is indeed NOT pregnant, she announces the release of new music from her “soon.”
