Some simply saw a funny message on a pumpkin. Others saw what could be a hint at new music. Either way, fans cannot stop talking about Lady Gaga‘s latest post on her social media.
On both her Twitter and her Instagram, Gaga posted multiple photos of what appear to be a pumpkin carving session on Tuesday (Oct. 29). One pumpkin in particular made fans laugh out loud, as it wasn’t carved, but simply painted with the words “f–k this” scrawled across its face, and a knife sticking out of its stem.
But some eagle-eyed Little Monsters immediately caught wind of what they believe is a new hint toward Gaga’s new music. In the photo of her aforementioned pumpkin, an iPod can be seen sitting on the same table: when fans zoomed in, they saw that the song playing was titled “Stupid Love.”
It’s possible that Gaga could have been listening to already-released tracks from Jason Derulo or Dan + Shay. But the Twitter sleuths were skeptical, noticing that the track title was in all-caps, and had no cover art or artist information listed on the pop-up. Others kept digging, finding that rumors regarding a Gaga song called “Stupid Love” have been floating around the internet for a few months.
One stan account even went as far as to find an old post where a copyright claim was made against another user’s tweet from August, where they had retweeted a snippet of an unreleased song. According to a screenshot they took, there was a reference made in the claim to a track from Lady Gaga called, you guessed it, “Stupid Love.”

I’ve just had a copyright notice on a tweet I posted a few days ago. The track has been removed as it infringes on an artists copyright. It keeps referencing ‘Stupid Love’ by Lady Gaga from universal music studios. Is this a track from #lg6 pic.twitter.com/ODIuZzG1Tr
