The Internet swarmed with Kelly Clarkson pregnancy rumors earlier this week because 1) the singer is getting married soon and 2) Kelly Clarkson is a female pop singer, and therefore her stomach is subject to constant scrutiny.

Late Thursday night, the Idol champ squashed rumors that she was expecting on Twitter, stating simply, "I am not pregnant." But she did reveal a different surprise: She and her fiance Brandon Blackstock are eloping even though their wedding is just two months away.

"We are eloping for one reason only: We both want an intimate ceremony," Clarkson said. Fair enough, although we have to question the logic of announcing to the world that you're eloping—isn't that just gonna put the paparazzi on high alert?

Regardless, we applaud her foresight in filming a video that allows her to be her own wedding band.
