What Are You Saying

A lot of times, celebrities speak in codewords, so that they can express themselves without getting into too much trouble. We guess having to watch what you say is just one of the many weird parts of being famous, right in there with crowds of people screaming whenever you’re near them and people paying actual money to see you in person. And we see it all of the time!

So often, in fact, that we think that we’ve cracked the code and have figured out just what celebs actually mean when they say the following things:

1. WHAT THEY SAY: “We’re not dating.”

WHAT WE THINK THEY MEAN: “We are totally more than just friends, but are trying to keep it under wraps. Or just wanna peak your interest further.”

2. WHAT THEY SAY: “Look out for my new project soon.”

WHAT WE THINK THEY MEAN: “I actually know as much about this project as you do, but I don’t want you to get angry or impatient. Or there’s actually nothing going on, but that’d make me look bad to say it.”
