Allow us to begin this post with an answer to our own headline: NO.
Neither Miley Cyrus nor Selena Gomez is pregnant.
But try telling that to the editors at Life & Style, whose latest cover claims to report that Selena is knocked up with the impending child of Justin Bieber and that Miley is expecting the spawn of Patrick Schwarzenegger.
Of course, if you read very closely, the tabloid never literally says that Selena Gomez is pregnant or that Miley Cyrus is pregnant.
Instead, it writes about the conjured-up topis. To wit:
"In late October, [Miley] mentioned that her period was late,” an anonymous source tells the magazine. “She took two pregnancy tests. One came back negative - and the other came back positive.”
