Kelsea Ballerini Perfectly Shuts Down Twitter User's Pregnancy Question

Kelsea Ballerini looked amazing on the red carpet at the 2020 CMA Awards last night, but she unfortunately subject to an inappropriate question about her body.

In a now deleted tweet, a Twitter user asked if she was pregnant.

“I’m sure you mean well, but it’s incredibly insensitive to ask or assume if another woman is pregnant. I’m not, by the way. Just carrying around my organs. But if I were, I’d want to share that in my own time when I felt ready. Let’s not judge bloat levels on the internet,” Kelsea posted.

Kelsea and her husband Morgan Evans got married back in December of 2017.

Kelsea Ballerini Was Added to the CMA Awards 2020 Lineup Just Hours Before the Show - Here's Why

Kelsea Ballerini walks the carpet in a floral dress at the 2020 CMA Awards on Wednesday (November 11) at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn.

The 27-year-old singer will be performing her song “Hole in the Bottle” during the event tonight and she was only added to the lineup earlier today.

Kelsea was added to the lineup to replace Florida Georgia Line, who dropped out due to a positive COVID-19 test. Previously, she expressed her disappointment for being snubbed by the CMA Awards after receiving no nominations this year.

“Putting out an album and working as hard as I can, even through a pandemic, I just felt disappointed to not be a part of a community that I work really hard to stand up for and be a face of and make music that I really do hope represents the genre well,” Kelsea told People back in September. “I just felt disappointed, and that’s okay. That’ll make me make a better record next time.”

“Not that awards don’t matter, because I really do think they do, and I think that’s why I’m disappointed,” she added. “Honestly, it helped me refocus on what matters to me, and that truly is making the best music that I love and that I feel good about and making it for people that will show up for me in seats when I’m able to go back on tour.”

FYI: Kelsea is wearing a full Dolce&Gabbana look.

Kelsea Ballerini Very Politely Told Critics To 'Shut Up' After They Hated On Her CMT Awards Performance with Halsey

Kelsea Ballerini shines like a diamond in a cute silver outfit backstage at the 2020 iHeartCountry Festival held at The Steel Mill in Nashville, Tenn., on Friday (October 23).

The 27-year-old “hole in the bottle” singer took the stage to perform a few of her hit songs, just after performing with Halsey at the 2020 CMT Awards earlier in the week.

After her Coyote Ugly inspired performance with Halsey aired, Kelsea took note of all the critics of the performance and kindly told them to “shut up.”

“After reading way too many comments, I’d like to remind people that there are different kinds of country music,” Kelsea wrote on her Instagram. “And none are more ‘real’ than others when it comes from an honest place, that women can wear whatever we want and shouldn’t be called names and criticized for it, and that if you don’t have something nice to say, politely shut up.”

But that wasn’t it, there were also claims of lip-syncing.

“Here’s the thing,” one follower wrote in her comments. “To me the issue isn’t the outfit. My issue is the lip-synching. Every performance last night was lip synced and it was very obvious.”

Kelsea replied, “Not true, every performance was prerecorded because, ya know, COVID.”

Kelsea Ballerini Performs New Version of 'Hole in the Bottle' at ACM Awards 2020!

Kelsea Ballerini hits the stage at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium for her performance at the 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards, which aired on Wednesday (September 16).

The 27-year-old country singer performed the ballerini version of her song “Hole in the Bottle.”

If you didn’t know, Kelsea dropped her album Kelsea back in March and she deconstructed all of the songs and released the new versions in a new album titled ballerini just last week.

“So this year at the ACMs I am performing my single ‘Hole In The Bottle’ but I’m performing the ballerini version of it, which is super fun to be able to play a new version of a song that’s also still kind of new and to play at The Ryman feels really fitting cause it’s all organic and stripped and it’s a drinking song and I don’t know about you but it’s really been a thing the last five months of my life,” Kelsea told Country Now about the performance. “I just have to like pat everyone on the back because it’s been so safe and everyone’s taking every precaution to get music to people but do it the right way and I think that just represents country music so well and to be able to be a part of this community and a part of this show kind of being the first real thing that we’ve gotten to do in months and months and months, I’m just really grateful to be here.”

Kelsea Ballerini Says She Misses the Red Carpet Ahead of ACM Awards Appearance

Kelsea Ballerini poses for photos while attending a virtual radio row press day for the 2020 ACM Awards on Monday (September 14) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 27-year-old country singer opened up about how she used to get so anxious on the red carpet, but she misses getting dressed up for them amid the pandemic.

“Like, I hated them because I got so anxious,” she told Taste of Country. “I don’t know why. I would just struggle really bad with anxiety about them, so I would just run on, do photos and like three interviews and leave because I just hated it.”

“And then I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, Carrie Underwood is on the carpet. Get out of her way, she’s the queen,’” Kelsea continued. “But now, I miss it so much. I’m like, ‘Yes, put me in a pair of Spanx and let’s go!’”

Well, good news for Kelsea (and for us): she’ll be back on the red carpet for the ACM Awards on Wednesday!
