Lady Gaga has something cooking – but it sure isn’t a baby.

The newly-minted Oscar winner shut down pregnancy rumors and confirmed she’s got a new album in the works in one fell swoop Tuesday on Twitter.

“Rumors I’m pregnant? Yeah, I’m pregnant with #LG6,” she wrote.

The hashtag refers to the fact that the new record will be her sixth studio album, the follow-up to 2016’s Joanne, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and featured hit singles like “Million Reasons.”

The singer, 32, is keeping busy in the weeks since awards season wrapped.

Gaga had been on the circuit since the fall promoting A Star Is Born, which ultimately earned her her first Oscar, for Best Original Song.

She and costar Bradley Cooper sang the track, “Shallow,” in a steamy performance at the Oscars, sparking rumors that the pair’s chemistry wasn’t just onscreen.

Gaga addressed the talk on Jimmy Kimmel Live last month, however, and shut down the claims, saying their intense connection was actually just for show.

“Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see,” she said. “[‘Shallow’] is a love song, A Star is Born is a love story. It was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time… When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel.”

“I’m an artist and I guess [Bradley and I] did a good job… fooled ya!” she added.

The performance came just days after the singer’s rep confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE she had ended her engagement with fiancé Christian Carino.

“It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “There’s no dramatic story.”

Meanwhile, in addition to working on her new album, Gaga will start her Enigma Las Vegas residency up again in May after first launching the show in December.
