Lady Gaga isn't what you'd call a traditional kind of gal, so eyebrows were raised when her frequent collaborator, photographer Terry Richardson (left), tweeted a photo this weekend of her waggling her sparkler-decorated left hand.
"Gaga showing off her new engagement ring!" enthused the caption.
The unveiling of the suspiciously normal-appearing diamond ring (read: It is made of neither meat nor glitter nor shellfish) sent her little monsters into a tizzy as they tried to narrow down the candidates for groom.
Leading the pack was Gaga's most recent flame, actor Taylor Kinney. They reportedly parted ways late last month, shortly before the popster embarked on her world tour.
But sources assure TMZ that Lady G is not engaged. Seems the ring is just a ring, and Richardson, who is chronicling Gaga on tour, was merely joking around.
Insiders connected to the restaurant Gaga's parents own in New York also dismissed the nuptial whispers to the Daily News.
