As the buzz of Halle Bailey’s “pregnancy” continues to circulate, a misquote from the singer’s interview with the UK edition of Glamour Magazine appears to have created an even louder, inaccurate, buzz.
On Oct. 17, as part of being named one of Glamour UK’s Women of the Year, all eyes were on Bailey as she went to London to celebrate the occasion. However, in the related profile, the magazine used a quote from Leigh-Anne Pinnock from the girl group Little Mix and attributed it to Bailey.
“Being a mum, being newly married—there’s a positive side of it, but also the negative,” was the wrongfully attributed quote re-shared by Vulture. “I want to show that although things might look perfect from the exterior, that’s not always the case.”
Glamour owed up to the error, but not before the matter caused an online frenzy. The hype around Bailey’s possible pregnancy has sparked much conversation, especially because she’s reached a new height in her career.
Despite the never-ending rumors, Bailey posted to Instagram expressing how “grateful” she was to be honored with Glamour‘s “Game-changer” award.
“I’m so grateful that I was honored with the Glamour Woman of the Year Gen Z Game-Changer award,” said Bailey. “This is such a special honor to me and feels oh so amazing to be recognized for the work that I have put in all the years of my career. Being a young woman in the spotlight is definitely not for the weak.. but because of God, my loved ones and mentors, I am able to face the world every day with my head held high.”
